  • In my life
    I’ve grown upside down
    Caught my string on the ground
    Where the river won’t run
    Where the sparrow won’t dive
    Where the spirit can’t sing
    And the arrow won’t climb
    Oh I’ve seen the sun go down
    And the moon on the rise
    I saw it all once

    In my haze
    I faced a dream gone gray
    Shaken down in the shade
    Of a hollow oak tree
    Over honey so sweet
    Fought a killer queen bee
    Brought me to my knee
    Oh I’ve seen a cloud rain down
    In the flash of a light
    I saw it all once

    Woah I’ve been a-running wild
    Been a fool reconciled
    Mmm mm mm

    When I die
    Take me the long way home
    Lay me down in the snow
    Where the sparrow might go
    Where the hollow oaks fold
    Into a cradle in time
    To make a nest from bone
    Woah I saw but I went blind
    Now we know what we know
    We’ll see it all go Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
