Nothing Yet

Tracy Chapman2000年1月18日

Good times and bad

Seen them both


Hope fly out the window


Fortune walk through the door


Learned not to believe


This is as good as it gets

Because we ain't seen nothing yet


Hands untied


But the same shuffle once again


Running all the time


Ain't going nowhere


Its a new page in the same book


Its a new game with the same rules


The lights go down


Fade to black on the set


And we ain't seen nothing yet


Saddled with bonds


Broken and in disrepair


Forty acres to a forty ounce


Don't seem fair


The sirens rise and wail


Shadowed by libertys torch


As the boats that brought us over


Are slowly sinking off the shore

And we ain't seen nothing yet


This life a crime


A blessing and a curse


Chosen and unwanted


Displaced and usurped


Id run away


there But is nowhere to go


So Ill stand and fight

And hope and pray


That the best is yet to come


And we ain't seen nothing yet
