  • I tried to get high, but you wanted me low
    Good things are happening, but happening slow
    It's some kind of mystery from long ago

    I finally know who I'm supposed to be
    My mind was locked but I found the key
    Hope it don't all slip away from me

    Hard times, fine lines
    Moments pass by and I cry
    Rewind, step behind
    It's hard to find the flipside

    I can't stand when you tell me to get back
    If we're all free, why does it seem we can't just be?

    I saw your reflection all over the news
    Your temperature's well past a hundred and two
    Put the guns away, or we'll all gonna lose

    Stand by or take flight
    Eat or throw your peace pie
    Walk on, or be mine
    Moments fly by and I cry

    I can't stand when you tell me to get back
    If we're all free, why does it seem we can't just be?
    I can't stand when you tell me to get back
    If we're all free, why does it seem we can't just be? Writer/s: A JONES, G CALHOUN, M DIASIO, NICHOLAS WEILLER, NORAH JONES, PETE REMM
