Blood A Go Run

Leroy Brown6 Aug 2012
Lyrics

blood - 群星

older brother, restless soul, lie down

 

lie for a while with your ear against the earth

 

and you'll hear your sister sleep talking

say, your hair is long but not long enough

to reach home to me

 

but your beard

 

someday might be

 

and she woke up in a cold sweat on the floor

 

next to a family portrait drawn

when you were four

 

and beside a jar of two cent coins

that are no good no more

 

she'll lay it aside

 

older father, weary soul, you'll drive

 

back to the home you made on the mountainside

 

with that ugly, terrible thing

those papers for divorce and a lonely ring

 

a lonely ring

 

sit on your porch

 

and pluck your strings

 

oh, and you'll find somebody you can blame

 

and you'll follow the creek that runs out into the sea

 

and you'll find the peace of the lord

 

grandfather, weary soul, you'll fly

 

over your life once more before you die

 

since our grandma passed away

 

you've waited for forever and a day

 

just to die

 

and someday soon

 

you will die

 

it was the only woman you ever loved

 

that got burnt by the sun

too often when she was young

 

and the cancer spread and

it ran into her body and her blood

 

and there's nothing you can do about it now
