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

 

Oh

 

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
