versuri 03 ragtime - native son

Te rog, așteaptă...

verse 1:
i said when you’re done come look for me-
it’s like looking for cocaine in the snow
and all my friends are in my head
that’s how we’re always in the know
i feel air bubbles in my chest
this a body i’ve outgrown
cigarette smoke all in my clothes-
play the drum line with my bones…
another griot…
eyes closed
she knows

chorus:
i’m scared to
sleep
for fear of
cold
it’s in my
genes
words in my
soul! (throat)
don’t wanna bleed-
but i want to, go
i hear my
beating
like ragtime
like rag-time
verse 2:
i told myself i’m doing fine
i think i’m starting to believe
i think i’d rather check the time-
before i go to check my breathing
i saw myself in a big window
then inside a tv screen
no depression
just reflections-
of how i look when i’m not screaming!
i know i learned to follow suit
before i learned to follow dreams
and i wear designer clothes-
to put my heart out on my sleeve
t-shirt say comme des garçons;
and my mouth say comme des filles
i know the way i live life cold
but at least i’m not on my knees…
instead i rest in peace!
clean
god speed…
chorus:
i’m scared to
sleep
for fear of
cold
it’s in my
genes
words in my
soul! (throat)
don’t wanna bleed-
but i want to, go
i hear my
beating
like ragtime
like rag-time
