Patty GriffinForgiveness

We are swimming with the snakes at the bottom of the well So silent and peaceful in the darkness where we fell But we are not snakes and what's more we never will be And if we stay swimming here forever we will never be free I heard them ringing the bells in heaven and hell They got a secret they're getting ready to tell It's falling from the skies It's calling from the graves Open your eyes boy, I think we are saved Open your eyes boy, I think we are saved Let's take a walk on the bridge right over this mess Don't need to tell me a thing baby, we already confessed And I raised my voice to the air And we were blessed It's hard to give It's hard to get But everybody needs a little forgiveness We are calling for help tonight on a thin phone line As usual we're having ourselves one hell of a time And the planes keep flying over our heads No matter how loud we shout Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey And we keep wavin and wavin our arms in the air but we're all tired out I heard somebody say today's the day Big old hurricane she's blowing our way Knockin over the buildings Killing all the lights Open your eyes boy, we made it through the night Open your eyes boy, we made it though the night Let's take a walk on the bridge right over this mess Don't need to tell me a thing baby, we already confessed And I raise my voice to the air And we were blessed It's hard to give It's hard to get It's hard to give But still I think it's the best bet Hard to give Never gonna forget But everybody needs a little forgiveness Everybody needs a little forgiveness
