oh you are the roots that that sleep beneath my feet lyrics

bright eyes
Artist: bright eyes
Song: oh you are the roots that that sleep beneath my feet
Album: Don't Be Frightened Of Turning The Page
Year: 2000
I met you through a common friend
in the attic of my parents house
and though I didn't know it then
I soon was finding out
you are the roots that sleep beneath my feet
and hold the earth in place
each time a faucet opens
words are spoken
the water runs away
and I hear your name
no, nothing has changed

there was this book I read and loved
the story of a ship
who sailed around the world and found
that nothing else exists
beyond his own two sails
and wooden shell
and what is held within
all else is sure to pass
we clutch and grasp
and debate what's truly permanent
but when the wind starts to shift
there's no argument

I sing and drink and sleep on floors
and try hard not to be annoyed
by all these people worrying about me
so when I'm suffering through some awful drive
you occasionally cross my mind
it's my hidden hope that you are still among them
well are you?

Oh, you are the roots that sleep beneath my feet
and hold the earth in place
each time a curtain opens
sunlight pours in
a lifetime melts away
and we share a name
on some picturesque grave
bright eyes
oh you are the roots that that sleep beneath my feet lyrics
