Looking At The World From The Bottom Of A Well

Album: Haughty Melodic (2005)
  • That Cuban girl
    That brought me low
    She had that skin so fine and red lips rose-like now
    Her mouth was wide
    And sweet as well
    And now relentless hours of dreaming up her smell

    And I feel as if I am looking at the world from the bottom of a well

    And the only way to beat it is to bat it down

    Oh all the days
    That I have run
    I sought to lose that cloud that's blacking out the sun
    My train will come
    Some one day soon
    And when it comes I'll ride it bound from night to noon

    Aimless days, uncool ways of decathecting
    Painless phase, blacked out thoughts you be rejecting Writer/s: MIKE DOUGHTY
    Publisher: BMG Rights Management

  • Joel from Seattle, WaThis song is cool regardless of what it is about.
  • Greg House from Princeton, NjI always thought this song was performed by either SugarRay or Pearl Jam. Now I know better.
    Also, this was featured on the Grey's Anatomy
    soundtrack. I don't remember if it was on volume one or two but that doesn't really matter. Funny how a particular singer or group can sound one another huh.
