Old lover you miss me over the ocean,
I hope this finds you well,
Warm sun on my back, the earth on its axis,
The violence when we met.

We´re good people but why don´t we show it?

Dead birds on the stairwell,
Some ugly morning fell from their nests,
No don´t tell your parents when we start sharing each other´s beds.

We´re good people but why don´t we show it?
And we´re good people but why don´t we show it?

I want to raise dogs
dogs and money,
Stop threatening to leave
town and i´ll stop running.

We´re good people but why don´t we show it?
And we´re good people but why don´t we show it?

    General Comment´Stop threatening to leave town and i´ll stop running´

    my favourite line.. most of her songs are pretty self-explanatory.. but i just love the lyrics and her chilled voice..

    General CommentI always thought the line "we're good people but why don't we show it?" was meant to be about how in their relationship neither of them are trying to be the better person, not giving enough and having bikering arguments etc (from the stop threatening to leave line).

    General Commentinteresting take, amberbreath. i heard this live the other night in philly, and she sings it really passionately. i agree, though, that basically the relatonship doesn't bring out the best in them.
