Soakin' Up My Blue

lyrics

There was water in the pigeon hole
boiling rocks and breathing steam
and there was cotton in the hurricane
braiding telephone wires along the way

So take note of the silence
seek shelter in cars
birds fly from the treetops
saying the storm isn't far

I've been staring at mountains
waiting for them to come
but now that I'm on top
I know that there's nowhere to run
I've been staring at mountains
waiting for them to come
but now that I'm on top
I know that there's nowhere to run
And the spirits are confused
used to me looking down
I'm used to it too
but the sky has been soakin' up my blue
Yeah the sky has been soakin' up my blue

They brought needles to the other side
rumors get lost in the hay
counting clouds against the fool on the hill
no sunny disposition keeps me dry

So take note of the silence
seek shelter in cars
birds fly from the treetops
saying the storm isn't far

I've been staring at mountains
waiting for them to come
but now that I'm on top
I know that there's nowhere to run
I've been staring at mountains
waiting for them to come
but now that I'm on top
I know that there's nowhere to run
And the spirits are confused
used to me looking down
I'm used to it too
but the sky has been soakin' up my blue
Yeah the sky has been soakin' up my blue

The sky has been soakin' up my blue...
