  • Big stretch and not much sleep
    I got a couple of plam trees on each side of my cheek
    And it's a bright blue Saturday
    And the rummage sells the rubbish to me

    But if I could buy the sky that's hangin'
    Over this bed of mine
    If I could climb these vines
    And maybe see what you're seein'

    If you were standing on the corner staring straight
    Into the eyes of Jesus Christ

    One porch, one dog, one cockroach only way to be
    I got sewage fruit and it's growing out back from roots
    I don't know if they belong to me
    But if I could buy the sky that's hangin'

    Over this bed of mine
    And if I could climb these vines
    and maybe see what you're seein'

    Sittin' at the edge of this building,
    Twenty stories below,
    A' twenty stories below
    Twenty stories below
    Twenty stories below

    I can't tell you how many ways that I've sat,
    And viewed my life today, but I can tell you
    I don't think that I can find easier way
    So if I see you walking hand in hand in hand
    With a three armed man, you know I'll understand

    (Pockets full of crappiness
    Can't piece together my day
    So I pose myself this question
    Maybe sleeps gonna get me in the shade
    I got my head buried in this pillow
    I got my head buried in this pillow
    So low)

    But you should have been in my shoes yesterday
    You should have been in my shoes yesterday Writer/s: BRAD SMITH, CHRISTOPHER JOHN THORN, CHRISTOPHER THORN, GLEN GRAHAM, SHANNON HOON, THOMAS ROGERS STEVENS, THOMAS STEVENS
