  • Load the car and write the note
    Grab your bag and grab your coat
    Tell the ones that need to know
    We are headed north

    One foot in and one foot back
    But it don't pay to live like that
    So I cut the ties and I jumped the tracks
    For never to return

    Ah Brooklyn, Brooklyn take me in
    Are you aware the shape I'm in?
    My hands they shake, my head it spins
    Ah Brooklyn, Brooklyn take me in

    When at first I learned to speak
    I used all my words to fight
    With him and her and you and me
    Ah, but it's just a waste of time
    Yeah, it's such a waste of time

    That woman she's got eyes that shine
    Like a pair of stolen polished dimes
    She asked to dance, I said it's fine
    I'll see you in the morning time
    Ah Brooklyn, Brooklyn take me in
    Are you aware the shape I'm in?
    My hands they shake, my head it spins
    Ah Brooklyn, Brooklyn take me in

    Three words that became hard to say
    I and love and you
    What you were then I am today
    Look at the things I do

    Ah Brooklyn, Brooklyn take me in
    Are you aware the shape I'm in?
    My hands they shake, my head it spins
    Ah Brooklyn, Brooklyn take me in

    Brooklyn, Brooklyn take me in
    Are you aware the shape I'm in?
    Oh, my hands they shake, my head it spins (spins)
    Ah Brooklyn, Brooklyn take me in

    Dumbed down and numbed by time and age
    Your dreams that catch the world the cage
    The highway sets the traveler's stage
    All exits look the same

    Three words that became hard to say
    I and love and you
    I and love and you
    I and love and you Writer/s: Robert Crawford, Scott Avett, Timothy Avett
    Publisher: BMG Rights Management

  • Marcus from Columbia, Mothis song captures a lot of what the avett brothers are but their independently released music says so much more. whoever is a fan of them and got into them by this album should definitely listen to their albums before.
