YOU AND ME OF THE 10,000 WARS
Indigo Girls


you and me of the 10,000 wars

dividing life into factions of pleasure and chores

a bed to be made and a bed to lie in

a hand in the darker side

and our sights set on zion


the heart of a skeptic and the mind of a child

put my life in a box and let my imagination run wild

pour the cement for my feet

the heart and the mind on a parallel course

never the two shall meet

and oh the dissatisfied with the satisfied

everybody loves a melodrama and the scandal of a lie

still you held your arms open

for the prodigal daughter

i see my eyes in your eyes through my eyes

still waters


try making one and one make one

twist the shapes until everything comes undone

watch the wizard behind the curtain

the larger than life and the power of seeming certain

the evil ego and the vice of pride

is there ever anything else that makes us take our different sides

i wanted everything to feed me

about as full as i got was of myself

and the upper echalons of mediocrity

and oh the dissatisfied with the satisfied

everybody loves a melodrama and the scandal of a lie

still you held your arms open

for the prodigal daughter

i see my eyes in your eyes through my eyes

still waters

still waters


after the battles and we're still around

everything once up in the air has settled down

sweep the ashes let the silence find us

a moment of peace is worth every war behind us

you and me of the 10,000 wars
