NASHVILLE
Indigo Girls


as i drive

from your pearly gates

i realize that i just can't stay

all those mountains

they kept you locked inside

and hid the truth

from my slighted eyes


i came to you with a half-open heart

dreams upon my back

illusions of a brand new start

nashville

can't i carry the load

is it my fault that

i can't reap what i sow

nashville

did you give me half a chance

with your southern style

and your hidden dance away

you dance away

and you dance away


all these voices

they whisper through my walls

they talk of falling fast

they say i'm losing it all

they say i'm running blind

to love of my own

but i'll be walking proud

i'm saving what i still own


i fell on my knees to kiss your land

but you are so far down

and i can't even see to stand

in nashville

you forgot the human race

you see with half a mind

what colors hide the face

nashville

i'd like to know your fate

i'd like to stay a while

but i've seen your lowered states today

i've seen 'em today

honey i swear i've seen 'em today


now i'm leaving

i've got all these debts to pay

you know we all have our dues

i'll pay 'em some other place

ah i never ask that you pay me back

we all arrive with more

i left with less than i had


your town is made for people passing through

a last chance for a cause

i thought i knew

but nashville

you tell me what you are gonna do

with all your southern style

it'll never pull you through

nashville

i can't place no blame

but if you forget my face

i'll never call your name again

no never again

no never again


i fell on my knees to kiss your land

but you are so far down

and i can't even see to stand

in nashville

you forgot the human race

you see with half a mind

what colors hide the face

nashville

i'd like to know your fate

i'd like to stay a while

but i've seen your lowered states today

i've seen 'em today

honey i swear i've seen 'em today

i'm running away i'm running away

i'm running i'm running

i'm running away
