Lyrics

Can’t smell the roses when the black crow has gone to calling.
Can’t hear the clock beat through the black coffee in my eyes.
There’ll come a day that I’ll come to pay for all my stalling,
Til then I’ll write you these records like they’re letters to the skies.

So I’m throwing a beat down, one I can see out into the dawning.
And I’m closing eyes. I’m closing my mind. I’m drawing the shades.
I wanna think about autumn, think about how them leaves go falling.
I will sing me out of this city, out of what gets me out of these days

Play me a river. Sing me the sea. Play me the part that’ll take my heart into the trees.
Roll me a rainstorm that’ll rock me to sleep. Then slow it down. Til only sounds do I see.

You didn’t make headlines, but you can bet my world stopped turning.
I’m not sober of thought, but sober or not, it’s burning my heart.
And wasn’t it just yesterday that I got past the age of burning?
That’s the thing about time: it ain’t in a line, and it ends where it starts.

Play me a river. Sing me the sea. Play me the part that’ll take my heart into the trees.
Roll me a rainstorm that’ll rock me to sleep. Then slow it down. Til only sounds do I see.

Quiet my eyes til I can see. Sing me the line that I can read.
Roll in my ears til they don’t bleed. ‘Cause all that I hear. Is all that I need.

Can’t smell the roses when the black crow has gone to calling.
Can’t light these damn matches with your black ashes in the woods.
So I’m throwing a beat down til I can feel how leaves go falling,
And I will sing me out of this city, out of what gets me. Out for good.

Play me a river. Sing me the sea. Play me the part that’ll take my heart into the trees.
Roll me a rainstorm that’ll rock me to sleep. Then slow it down. Til only sounds do I see.
