Unravel lyrics

Album: Unravel

I've been livin' out here by the hydro towers
Tryin' to feel my feet and regain my powers
Livin' on the flight path, tryin' to feel the ground
Tryin' to break the chains that hold me to this town

I've been watchin' the crows, sittin' on the wires
Listenin' to the muscle cars burnin' their tires
I thought I'd stick around for a month or so
Well I've been here for seven and this is what I know

You can read a lot of books, it don't make you smart
Kiss a lot of fools, don't mean you got a heart
Walk a million miles, don't mean that you traveled
You can make a perfect plan, and see it all unravel

Well you know who your friends are when you go through trouble
They're the ones who come around and pull you from the rubble
The phone don't ring as many times a day
But when it does, they have somethin' good to say

I watch the new mothers push their strollers on my street
They're scared and they're happy and they're sad and they're sweet
I watched two seasons come and go
And this is what I know

You can read a lot of books, it don't make you smart
Kiss a lot of fools, don't mean you got a heart
Walk a million miles, don't mean that you traveled
You can make a perfect plan, and see it all unravel

Now I'm sittin' in the window and I'm watchin' it rain
Thunder and lightenin', love and shame
It took me four long years to crawl down to this place
It'll take four to get back and it ain't no race

Now there's cats on the sidwalk, dogs under trees
And the wheels on the pavement buzz like honey bees
The laundry's wet and the wind is gonna blow
And I don't care 'cause this is what I know

You can read a lot of books, it don't make you smart
Kiss a lot of fools, don't mean you got a heart
Walk a million miles, don't mean that you traveled
You can make a perfect plan, and see it all unravel
