Jewel - Been Down So Long

Текст песни Jewel - Been Down So Long

* spirit version (1998) *

Sun sets cross the ocean

Im a thousand miles from anywhere

My pocketbook and my heart both just got stolen

And the sun act like she dont even care

The wind blows cold when you reach the top

It feels like someones face is stuck to the bottom of my shoe

I got a plastic jesus, a cordless telephone for every corner of my room

Got everybody but you telling me what to do

But Ive been down so long

Ooh, it cant be longer still

Ive been down for so long

That the end must be drawing near

I look to everybody but me to answer my prayers

til I saw an angel in the bathroom who said she saw no one

Worth saving anywhere

And a blind man on the corner said its simple, like flipping a coin

Dont matter what side it lands on if its someone elses dime

But Ive been down so long

Ooh, it cant be longer still

Weve been down for so long

That the end must be drawing near

I take a trip, I catch a train, I catch a plane

I got a ticket in my hand

And then a man takes my money

And like cattle we all stand

But weve been down so long

Ooh, it cant be longer still

Weve been down for so long

The end must be...

I know the end must be...

Oh, I know the end must be drawing near

* live version (pre-1997) *

Transcribed by adam l.

The sun sets across the ocean

Im a thousasnd mile from anywhere

And my pocketbook in my heart

Both just got stolen

And the sun act like she dont even care

The wind blows cold when you reach the top

Feels like somebodys face is stuck to the bottom of my shoe

Got a plastic jesus, a cordless telephone ..? ? .. corner of my room

Got everybody but you tellin me what to do

***

Well Ive been down so long

It cant be that much longer still

And Ive been down for so long

That the end must be drawing near

***

I looked to everybody but me

To answer my prayers

Until I found an angel in the bathroom

Who said she didnt see anybody who was savin anywhere

And the blind man said, "simple... like flipping a coin -

Dont matter what side it lands on

So long as its somebody elses dime"

Cause if youre the top of the bottom

It all feels the same

We live out of fear if were too rich or were too poor

Fuess all I can do is museter up some change

And little bit of faith

And take some dignity when I walk through this door

*** (chorus)

Gonna take a trip

Catch a train

Got a ticket in my hand

And then a fat man takes my money

And like cattle we all stand

Im just a faceless body lost in this vast and worthless sea

In a thousand people I do not know

But really they are no different from me

They all have passion

They all have fear

They all have intense confusion

And no sweet moments that are clear

They all have aspirations

High hopes and dreams

And are really that alone like me

***

Weve been down so long

It cant be that nmuch longer still

Weve been down so long

That the end must be...

The end must be...

The end must be drawing near
