SOON TO BE NOTHING
Indigo Girls


kelly mountain road

saw a heavy load

with a sagging heart

and a break apart

voices in me

stood as thick as thieves

with no sympathy

for the beggars art

i have passed these pines

'bout a million times

effortlessly

(effortlessly)

now i grip the wheel

fear is what i feel

at the slow unraveling of

(slow unraveling of)

me

(me)

(ah)

(ah)


but you tell me it's temporary

(tell me it's temporary)

it's a matter of time

(it's a matter of time)

by god

don't you think i know it's in my mind

(in my mind)

and it's right over left

(right over left)

and healing the then

(healing the then)

i'll soon be to nothing

but i don't know when


well the way i flee

(daylight)

on my crooked feet

barn happy horse

(fading)

on a one-track course

then i self despise

(daylight)

cryin' out my eyes

'cause the happy trail

(fading)

led me to remorse,

but the road is long

(but the road is long)

and the song is gone

i blow empty

in my cicada shell

if i saw my choice

(if i saw my choice)

i might find my voice

but i don't know when

(don't know when)

and i just can't tell

(just can't tell)

(ah)

(ah)


you tell me it's temporary

(tell me it's temporary)

it's a matter of time

(it's a matter of time)

by god

don't you think i know it's in my mind

(in my mind)

it's right over left

(right over left)

and healing the then

(and healing the then)

i'll soon be to nothing

but i don't know when


deep behind my face

is a safer place

but old gears are hitched tight

to the gate

it's a daily grind

waiting to unwind

till i hear that click

that unlocks my fate

(ah)

(ah)


yeah

but you tell me it's temporary

(but
