Paul SimonHurricane Eye

Words & music by paul simon Tell us all a story About how it used to be Make it up and write it down Just like history About goldilocks and the three bears Nature in the cross hairs And how we all ascended From the deep green sea When it's not too hot Not too cold Not too meek Not too bold When it's just right and you have sunlight Then we're home, Finally home Home in the land of the homeless Finally home Oh what are we going to do I never did a thing to you Time peaceful as a hurricane eve Peaceful as a hurricane eye A history of whispers A shadow of a horse Faces painted black in sorrow and remorse White cloud, black crow Crucifix and arrow The oldest silence speaks the loudest Under the deep green sea When speech becomes a crime Silence leads the spirit Over the bridge of time Over the bridge of time I'm walking with my family And the road begins to climb And it's oh lord how we going to pray With crazy angel voices All night Until it's a new day Peaceful as a hurricane Peaceful as a hurricane Peaceful as a hurricane eye Peaceful as a hurricane Peaceful as a hurricane Peaceful as a hurricane eye Peaceful as a hurricane eye You want to be a leader? You want to change the game? Turn your back on money Walk away from fame You want to be a missionary? Got that missionary zeal? Let a stranger change your life How does it make you feel? You want to be a writer But you don't know how or when Find a quiet place Use a humble pen You want to talk talk talk about it All night squawk about The ocean and the atmosphere Well I've been away for a long time And it looks like a mess around here I'll be away for a long time So here's how the story goes There was an old woman Who lived in a shoe She was baking a cinnamon pie She fell asleep in a washing machine Woke up in a hurricane eye
