Jericho

Album: Out Of The Game (2012)
  • I keep thinking that you are going to change
    I keep thinking that you are going to rearrange
    But I’m a fool to think something so impossible
    You ain’t ever gonna change
    You ain’t ever gonna change
    Oh no, Jericho
    Until I blow

    I keep thinking that you are going to rise
    I keep thinking that you are going to compromise
    But I’m a fool to think something so improbable
    You ain’t ever gonna rise
    You ain’t ever gonna rise
    Oh no, Jericho
    Until I take you by surprise

    Baby I know that you’re too sad to cry
    But my little darling guess what? So am I
    Still I believe we ought to shed a tear
    The open hearted have no thing to fear

    But I don’t even think you hear me at all
    Under your medieval ceiling behind your biblical wall
    Guess I’ll have to put my trumpet back in the case
    And get behind this here cannon covered in lace
    Covered in lace

    I keep thinking that you are going to change
    I keep that you are going to rearrange
    But I’m a fool to think something so impossible
    You ain't ever gonna change
    You ain't ever gonna change
    Oh no, Jericho
    Until I blow
    Until I blow Writer/s: RUFUS WAINWRIGHT
