Round Here Lyrics

Round Here - Counting Crows (数乌鸦)

Written by:David Lynn Bryson/David Bryson/Adam Duritz/Dave Janusko/Dan Jewett/Chris Roldan

Step out the front door like a ghost

Into the fog where no one notices

The contrast of white on white


And in between the moon and you


The angels get a better view

Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right


I walk in the air between the rain

Through myself and back again

Where I don't know


Maria says she's dying

Through the door I hear her crying

Why I don't know


Round here we always stand up straight


Round here something radiates


Maria came from nashville with a suitcase in her hand

She said she'd like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis


She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land

Just like she's walking on a wire in the circus


She parks her car outside of my house

Takes her clothes off


Says she's close to understanding Jesus


She knows she's more that just a little misunderstood


She has trouble acting normal when she's nervous


Round here we're carving out our names


Round here we all look the same


Round here we talk just like lions


But we sacrifice like lambs


Round here she's slipping through my hands




Sleeping children got to run like the wind


Out of the lightning dream


Mama's little baby better get herself in


Out of the lightning


She says it's only in my head


She says shhh I know it's only in my head


But the girl on the car in the parking lot

Says man you should try to take a shot


Can't you see my walls are crumbling


Then she looks up at the building

And says she's thinking of jumping

She says she's tired of life


She must be tired of something

Round here she's always on my mind


Round here hey man I got lots of time


Round here we're never sent to bed early


Nobody makes us wait


Round here we stay up very very very very late

I I can't see nothing nothing round here


You catch me if I'm falling you catch me if I'm falling


Will you catch me cause I'm falling down on you


I said I'm under the gun round here


Oh man I said I'm under the gun round here



Well I can't see nothing nothing round here
