SWING ME
Patty Griffin


You don't like the sound of the truth

Coming from my mouth

You say that I like the proof

Baby that might be so

I might get to the end of my life

Find out everyone was lying

Look like you are not afraid anymore

I say that I would rather die trying


Oh swing me way down south

Sing me something brave from your mouth

And I cry(??) you pearls of water on my hips

And the love in my lips

All the love in my lips


This time when I swung the bat

And I found myself laying flat

I wondered

What a way to spend a dime

What a way to use the time

Aint it baby?

Now I looked at our reflections

In the window walking past

And I saw strangers

I think we're just so scared all the time

That's the main reason why

The world is so dangerous


Oh swing me waw down south

Sing me something brave from your mouth

And I cry(??) you pearls of water on my hips

And the love in my lips

All the love in my lips


You don't like the sound of the truth

Coming from my mouth

You say that I like the proof

Baby that might be so

Tell what's wrong with having a little faith

In what you're feelin in your heart

Why must we be so afraid

And always so far apart
