I Must Belong Somewhere

Stampa   |   Correggere

Leave the bright blue door on the white-washed floor
Leave the death ledgerr under city hall
Leave the joyful air in that rubber ball today

Leave the lilac print on the linen sheet
Leave the bird you killed at your father's feet
Let the sideways rain in the crooked street remain

Leave whimpering dog in his cold kennel
Leave the dead starlet on her pedestal
Leave the acid kids in their green fishbowls today

Leave the sad guitar in it's hard-shell case
Leave the worried look on your lover's face
Let the orange embers in the fireplace remain

Cause everything must belong somewhere
The train off in the distance, bicycle chained to the stairs
Everything must belong somewhere
I know that now, that's why I'm staying here

Leave the ocean's roar in the turquoise shell
Leave the widower in his private hell
Leave the liberty in that broken bell today

Leave the epic poem on it's yellowed page
Leave the grey macaw in his covered cage
Let the traveling band on the interstate remain

Cause everything must belong somewhere
Sound-stage in California, televisions in Times Square
Everything must belong somewhere
I know that now, that's why I'm staying here
Yeah I know that now that's why I'm staying here

Leave the secret talk on the trundle bed
Leave the garden tools in the rusted shed
Leave those bad ideas in your troubled head today

Leave the restless ghost in his old hotel
Leave the homeless man in his cardboard cell
Let the painted horse on the somber carousel remain

Cause everything must belong somewhere
Just like the gold around your finger and the silver in his hair
Yeah, everything must belong somewhere
I know that now, that's why I'm staying here
I know that now, that's why I'm staying here

In truth, the forest hears each sound
Each blade of grass as it lies down
The world requires no audience
No witnesses, no witnesses

Leave the old town drunk on his wooden stool
Leave the autumn leaves in the swimming pool
Leave the poor black child in his crumbling school today

Leave novelist in his daydream tune
Leave the scientist in his rubik's cube
Let true genius in the padded room remain

Leave horses hair on the slanted bow
Leave the slot machines on the riverboat
Leave the cauliflower in the casserole today

Leave the hot white-trash in their shopping malls
Leave the hawks of war in their capitals
Let the organs moan in the cathedral remain

Cause everything must belong somewhere
You lock the devil in the basement, God up into the air
Yeah, everything must belong somewhere
I know it's true, I wish you'd leave me here
I know it's true, why don't you leave me here?
