you're one with the burden of intuition. you're one with the freedom of a blank stare. you're one with the best friend you lost you wished was still there. you're one with the dust on that old piano. you're one with the strings on your new guitar. you're one with the wind through the open window, you are.

it was a faint line that brought you here and a pulse that kept you in time. it was a comfort of tradition but the fear that you were not that kind. and it's a shame now, baby, you can't see yourself in everything you're running from. and it's the same world, honey, that has brought you down as the one that's gonna pick you up, and pick you up.

you're one with the echoes of conversation. you're one with the strangers you've overheard. you're one with the lesson that was the best one you learned.

it was a faint line that brought you here and a pulse that kept you in time. it was the comfort of tradition but the fear that you were not that kind. but you are. and it's a shame now, baby, you can't see yourself in everything you're running from. and it's the same world, honey, that has brought you down as the one that's gonna pick you up, and pick you up.

it was a long, dark, sleepy, morning walk. you fell down facing up. it was a good start. it was a good start. [x2]

and it's a shame now, baby, you can't see yourself in everything you're running from. and it's the same world, honey, that has brought you down as the one that's gonna pick you up. and it's a shame now, baby, you can separate yourself from where you stood. and it's the same world, honey, made you feel so bad as the one that makes you feel so good, feel so good.

    General Commentthis is what i hear as far as lyrics:

    You're one with the burden of intuition
    You're one with the freedom of a blank stare
    You're one with the best friend you lost
    You wish was still there
    You're one with the dust on that old piano
    You're one with the strings on your new guitar
    You're one with wind through the open window
    You are

    It was a faint line that brought you here
    And a pulse that kept you in time
    It was the comfort of a tradition
    But the fear that you were not that kind
    And it's a shame now, baby
    You can't see yourself in everything you're running from
    And it's the same world, honey
    That has brought you down
    As the one that's gonna pick you up
    And pick you up

    You're one with the echoes of conversation
    You're one with the strangers you overheard
    You're one with the lesson
    That was the best one you learned

    It was a faint line that brought you here
    And a pulse that kept you in time
    It was the comfort of a tradition
    But the fear that you were not that kind
    But you are
    And it's a shame now, baby
    You can't see yourself in everything you're running from
    And it's the same world, honey
    That has brought you down
    As the one that's gonna pick you up
    And pick you up

    It was a long dark sleepy morning walk
    And you fell down facing up
    It was a good start
    It was a good start
    It was a long dark sleepy morning walk
    And you fell down facing up
    It was a good start
    It was a good start

    And it's a shame now, baby
    You can't see yourself in everything you're running from
    And it's the same world, honey
    That has brought you down
    As the one that's gonna pick you up
    And it's a shame now, baby
    You can't separate yourself from where you stood
    And it's the same world, honey
    Made you feel so bad
    As the one that makes you feel so good
    Feel so good

    General CommentAnd I think the line might be "It was a cold dark sleepy morning walk and you fell down facing up" but that doesn't really make sense. It is only what it sounds like

    General CommentI agree with baadblood, I think she says "... you fell down facing up." which would make sense with "it was a good start" because at least you are facing up, as in looking up and trying to be content.

    General Comment"it was a long dark, sleepy, morning walk and you fell down facing up. it was a good start. it was a good start" maybe fell down facing up means that the person died, but they tried to start over (good start) and failed, they didn't finish.....

    General Commentyeah... its a common saying. "make sure if you fall, you land face up." its like youre down at the lowest, but theres no where to go but up. its not only a good start, its the greatest/only start. awesome song, shes so lovely.
