EVERY LITTLE BIT
Patty Griffin


It's funny how a morning turns a love to shame

Disguised and disfigured and you thought I tasted like rain

There`s nothing here but a shadow nothin here

Now you know

Now you know

Now you know

Now you know

There's nothin here but the shadow, and now you know


I spit, I spit in the eye

I tear, I tear out my heart

and I scatter the bits

I stay unseen by the light

I stay untold by the truth

I'm sold by a lie

By this I am able in all of my travels

To make these memories quit

But tonight I clearly recall every little bit


I can chew like a cannibal

I can yell like a cat

I even had you believing that I really really like it like that

But there was never a moment

Not a moment

Now you know

Now you know

Now you know

Now you know

You ever got within a hundred million miles of my soul


I spit, I spit in the eye

I tear, I tear out my heart

And I scatter the bits

I stay unseen by the light

I stay untold by the truth

I'm sold by a lie

By this I am able in all of my travels

To make these memories quit

But tonight I clearly recall every little bit


You left open the window till the morning

And the winter walked in

Reality fired her wooden bullet

Splintered under our skin

They say I'm walking on freedom

This is freedom

Now I know

Now I know

Now I know

Now I know

I still don't blame you for leaving,baby

It's cold living with ghosts


I spit, I spit in the eye

I tear, I tear out my heart

and I scatter the bits

I stay unseen by the light

I stay untold by the truth

I'm sold by a lie

By this I am able in all of my travels

To make these memories quit

But tonight I clearly recall every little bit
