There's always something going on
and there's always something happening
and we're all somehow unreveling
and we're always somewhere traveling

I know I was born in Texas state
I soon moved to where my mother went
no I was born in Texas state
I soon moved to where my mother went

And there's always someone offering
and there's always something to give right back
And when you say no one's offering
I say "here I am, here I am"

And we believe in older gods
and the walls don't live within
we believe in older gods
the walls don't know they live within

Well my hands clapped to joys, new sounds
and I know she's somewhere singing
well we believe in other songs
and I hope she knows how much we do
the night is black and songs are bright
and the quiet quiet window lights
the world is black and the world is bright
while the shiny walls shine so bright

    General CommentThis is absolutely beautiful but I think there's about half the lyrics missing.

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song... nevertheless, this song is amazing. It's light, airy, and dreamy... makes time float by.

    General Commentthe joy part is wrong. It should be "Jo."

    "my hands clapped to Jo's new songs
    and I know she's somewhere singing
    well we believe all her songs
    and I hope she knows how much we do."

    It's a reference to Joanna Newsom

    General CommentThere's an older version of this song on The Charles C. Leary called "Ride Away Like Roy Orbison."
