Lungs lyrics


Townes Van Zandt

[Verse 1]
Won't you lend your lungs to me? Oh, mine are collapsing
Plant my feet and bitterly breathe up the time that's passing
Breath I'll take and breath I'll give, I'll pray the day's not poison
Stand among the ones who live in lonely indecision

[Verse 2]
Fingers walk the darkness down, my mind is on the midnight
Gather up the gold you've found, you fool, it's only moonlight
And if you try to take it home, your hands will turn to butter
You better leave this dream alone and try to find another

[Verse 3]
Salvation sat and crossed herself and called the Devil "partner"
Wisdom burned upon a shelf, who'll kill the raging cancer
Seal the river at its mouth, take the water prisoner
Fill the sky with screams and cries, bathe in fiery answers

[Verse 4]
Jesus was an only son and love, his only concept
Strangers cry in foreign tongues and dirty up the doorstep
And I, for one, and you, for two, ain't got no room for outside
Keep your injured looks to you, we'll tell the world that we tried
