Oh tell me how to let it go Just like this? In a medicated bliss Is it still a terrifying overload? A stout defying open road If I pay a ferry boat Will you carry my load?
And I'll paint all the ways in which I feel Set my glory alight And my still fight you teeth and nail My youth is screaming The door never really shuts Despite agoraphobic ifs and buts You're close to going through Will you carry me too?
And I know that I have it all in the same way as you do But we all take a unique fall in the final scene To a violin string Or a crashing train We all need somebody to teach us How to be Carried
Oh do you see Eden through the gates Who has the list? Has this all been über fate? Or is every move a known footprint fossilized A rare remake realized And if you fall too soon I'll carry you
And I know that I have it all in the same way as you do But we all take a unique fall in the final scene To a violin string Or a crashing train In the pounding rain And the thunder rolls in And the vertigo comes and goes And comes and goes and Comes We each need somebody to teach us How to be Carried
