UP FROM THE SKIES
Rickie Lee Jones


Tell me everything


I just want to talk to you

I won't do you no harm

I just want to know about your different lives

On this is here people farm

I heard some of you got your families

Living in cages tall and cold

And some just sit there and dust away

Past the age of old.

Is this true?

Please let me talk to you.


I just wanna know

The rooms behind your minds

Uh do I see a vacuum there

Or am I going blind?

Or is it just remains of vibrations

And they happen long ago?

Things like "Love the world" and

"Let your fancy flow"

Is this true?

Please let me talk to you

Is this true?

I just wanna talk to you.


I have lived here before

The days of ice

So of course this is why

I'm so concerned about the earth

'Cause I come back to find

The stars are misplaced

And the smell of a world

That's burned

A smell of a world

That's burned.


So where do I purchase my ticket?

I'd just like to have a ringside seat

I wanna hear about these new Mother Earth

I want to hear and see everything

I want to hear and see everything

I want to hear and see everything


I want you to show me

I want you to say to me

Show me everything

Oh yeah is that true?

Is that true?

Please let me talk to you

Oh my new Mother Earth

I won't do you no harm

Yes I have lived here before,

Many times many times

I know you.
