Lyrics: Saint Andrew's Hall


Recorded at: an hotel room in Saint Louis during the US 1994 tour

 

Big stretch and not much sleep
A big
palm trees rubbing against my cheek
I got a
bright blue Saturday
And the rummage sellin' the rubbish to me
But if I could buy the sky
That's hanging over this bed of mine

And i
f I could climb these vines
A
nd maybe see what you're seeing
If you were standing on the corner staring straight
I
nto the eyes of Jesus Christ

One porch, one dog, one cockroach only one way to be
Outside
I got sewage fruit and it's growing out back from roots
I don't know if they belong to me
But if I could buy the sky
That's hanging over this bed of mine

And if I could climb these vines
A
nd maybe see what you're seeing
If you were s
itting at the edge of this building
Twenty stories below,
Twenty stories below, below...


And
I can't tell you, how many ways that I've sat
and viewed my life today, but I can tell you
I don't think that I can find an easier way
So if I see you walking hand in hand in hand
W
ith a three armed man, you know I'll understand
But you should have been in my shoes yesterday
You should have been in my shoes yesterday
Background of last verse:
Oh, I can pull the crappy things we did together
In my day so I posed myself some questions
Maybe this week's gonna get me into shape
Hey, I got my head buried 'neath the pillow,
I got my head beneath my pillow so low
