I know your ways, so when I tell you "don't get crazy"
but the last wall standing's down, your daddy kicked it down.
Your little sister's gonna have a baby

I heard your planning to drive into the desert
hope you find the gypsy queen there
to make your body feel a little better
I heard some talk around the table
heard someone say your name
They talk like you were a superstar
They know you for what you are

DO you really think it's wise
to try to push the sun back down before it rises?
I know you're used to winning
When are you going to choose the prizes?

You must get tired of standing on the outside
watching the show, tired of all the useless conversation
You know how all the boys, they like their little ladies
silent, dead, dead quiet

Even though I know you don't believe in dreams
Don't even like to close your eyes
The other night there was a shot outside
You screamed in your sleep
You said "Help me I'm still breathing Jesus, please Jesus, isn't this enough?"

It's been a long time you've been standing in line
just like they've taught you.
Waiting for the view, you'd learned in school
You were entitled to.

    General Commenti love this song!!
    for some reason i always want to listen to it when people are making me mad
    emily is amazing. shes a true artists.
    there arent that many out there anymore.

    my favorite part is when she says
    "I heard your planning to drive into the desert
    hope you find the gypsy queen there
    to make your body feel a little better
    I heard some talk around the table
    heard someone say your name
    They talk like you were a superstar
    They know you for what you are"

    i love that whole part. i dont know why. it just seems to me like shes expressing so many emotions! this whole song is like that.
