Earthbound Lyrics

I could shed my skin and in the blink of an eye
I could fly, fly, fly
Tie my dreams up in a sack and lay my head down
On the track and die, die, die
My life's been so sweet, I just can't stand it
I must admit, I've made out like a bandit

Last nights conversation with a real good friend of mine
Drinkin' wine, wine, wine
Said fifty years of livin' and your worst mistakes forgiven
It just takes time, time, time
One man's lust for life brings world renown
And the next guy can't get two feet off the ground
He? s earthbound

(Earthbound)
Hear the wind through the tops of the trees
(Earthbound)
Summer sun nearly ninety degrees
(Earthbound)
Big ol' moon sinking down, think I might stick around
I? m earthbound

I knew love once way back when she had almond eyes
And olive skin and long black hair
She was Irish Spanish mix breed I was southeast Texas hayseed
We were almost there
Her daddy did not like my kind around
My true love took the next train out of town, earthbound

(Earthbound)
Where there's fathers and daughters in pain
(Earthbound)
Mama's boy walking home in the rain
(Earthbound)
Like a ship run aground I think I might stick around
I? m earthbound

With each new day that passes I'm in need of thicker glasses
But it's all okay
Someday, I'll be leaving but I just can't help believing
That it's not today
Every golden moment I have found
I've done my best to run right in the ground, earthbound

(Earthbound)
See the sky big and beautiful blue
(Earthbound)
Fallen angels come callin' for you
(Earthbound)
Keepin' close to the ground think I might stick around

(Earthbound)
Tom Waits, Aretha Franklin, Mary Karr
(Earthbound)
Walter Cronkite, Seamus Heaney, Ringo Starr
(Earthbound)
Dalai Lama, Charlie Brown make me wanna stick around
I? m earthbound
