Grabe some grapes and leaves, man
You can never tell
When you'll have to change your face
And hide your trophies well
Commin down the mountain
Or goin to your home
The village has evacuated
Now you gotta rome

Your feet could start to moan
And your eyes don't see to clear
The darkest dream could come
And shake your fait to stear (?)
Remember the sun
All from memory
Close your eyes and run circles
Round' its enemies

Remeber the sun
Before you awake
Remember all the reasons
And bake it into your cake
And we'll all come over
I"ll bring the coconut flakes
We're gunna get stoned with ya
Laugh at your mistakes

I know its been hard to take
And i know you wanna run
Just try to stay in one place
And have a little fun
I know its been hard to take
and i know you wanna run
We hope you will stay in one place
And dance before it's done

    General CommentJust a couple little corrections. Still not sure on that "Shake your faith to steal" line.

    Grab some grapes and leaves, man
    You can never tell
    When you'll have to change your face
    And hide your trophies well
    Coming down the mountain
    Or going to your home
    The village has evacuated
    Now you gotta roam

    Your feet could start to moan
    And your eyes don't see too clear
    The darkest dreams could come
    And shake your faith to steal

    Remember the sun
    All from memory
    Close your eyes and run circles
    Round' its enemies

    Remember the sun
    Before you awake
    Remember all the reasons
    And bake it into your cake
    And then we'll all come over
    Bring the coconut flakes
    We're gonna get stoned with ya
    And laugh at your mistakes

    I know its been hard to take
    And I know you wanna run
    But just try to stay in one place
    And have a little fun

    I know its been hard to take
    And I know you wanna run
    But just try to stay in one place
    And dance before it's done

    My Opinionfound this song on the 180° South soundtrack. the whole cd is amazing but this song stood out. the melody soothed me and made me drowsy but once i rewinded and listened to the lyrics i liked it even more

    General CommentI think it's, "And shake your faith used to steer" or "And shake your faith you use to steer," something along those lines. Meaning the darkness will shake the faith that guides whoever the song is speaking about.

    My InterpretationI feel person who wrote the song did so for a friend. You goes through a tough time, stuck in the same town or trouble and it's just getting old. You have your friends and they see it too. You know something has to change. Never forget tomorrow is coming.

    just try to stay in one place and have a little fun

    just try to stay in one place and dance until it's done

    is saying it may not be so bad just to stick where you are and enjoy your life with what you have before it's over

    The whole song feels so personal when I hear it, it's incredibly moving. I get the same emotion when I hear 'Wish You Were Here'
