  • Oh baby, let me sing it for you, now woah, no

    Hey Bruce
    Untie my noose
    Open up a bottle of
    Whatever you choose
    You see the naked truth
    It's only truth sometimes
    'Coz if you're looking for lies
    That's what you gonna find

    I gotta free my soul from the troubles of lately
    Follow my heart wherever it takes me
    Let it flow on by like a piece of driftwood

    Just a piece of driftwood (yeah)
    A piece of driftwood

    You win some, you lose some
    And some that you win, you really lose
    You get some, you give some
    You trade a little piece of your youth (oh)
    It's nothing makes me happier than singing the blues
    Set my big brown hat to my black pointed shoes
    (I'm thinking about it)

    I gotta free my soul from the troubles of lately
    Follow my heart wherever it takes me
    Let it flow on by like a piece of driftwood

    Like a piece of driftwood
    A piece of driftwood
    Ooh, like a piece of driftwood

    Ain't no mind to these troubles on the telephone lines
    The sun still shines, we got board and grind
    It's time to start baking, got no time to decline
    The earth awakes you, yes, the simple pleasures of mine
    Yours if you want them, you got the day
    Find wealth in the living and you'll never be grave
    A piece is missing from your puzzle
    It's the piece that you need
    It's place of mind you gonna find meditate by the sea
    Be free with all trees in all the air that you breath (yeah)
    They can't take away your soul but they can take all your pride
    Slow ride, gonna sleep in the forest tonight
    You gonna, you gonna sleep in the forest tonight
    Are you gonna sleep in the forest?
    'Coz

    I gotta free my soul from the troubles of lately
    Follow my heart wherever it takes me
    Let it flow on by like a piece of driftwood

    Oh, la-like a piece of driftwood
    La-la-la-like a piece of driftwood (yeah, oh) Writer/s: Cisco Adler, Cody Simpson
