GRAVECLOTHES

 
 

VERSE 1

She’s been thinkin’ life ain’t givin’ her what she needs

What can make her happy is always out of her reach

Somebody gotta help me

But she could not see that everything she wanted

Was inside of her heart, but she wouldn’t give it away

No, she wouldn’t give it away

 

CHORUS

We don’t need no mournful sound

Shake your graveclothes to the ground

Shake your graveclothes off, shake your graveclothes,

Shake your graveclothes off, shake your graveclothes

Thoughts you’re thinkin’ make you feel like you’re dead

But you can grow a garden out the top of your head

Shake your graveclothes off, shake your graveclothes,

Shake your graveclothes off, shake your graveclothes

 

BRIDGE

Don’t get lost inside your head (4x)

 

VERSE 2

He’s been wishin’ he was the best and the brightest

Scared to give what he’s got, no, he wouldn’t give it away

Self-deprecation, lack of motivation, stealing his aliveness

In the silence love abounds and has already filled the spaces

And replaces them with grace if he would only stop to feel, to see

 

CHORUS

We don’t need no mournful sound

Shake your graveclothes to the ground

Shake your graveclothes off, shake your graveclothes,

Shake your graveclothes off, shake your graveclothes

Thoughts you’re thinkin’ make you feel like you’re dead

But you can grow a garden out the top of your head

Shake your graveclothes off, shake your graveclothes,

Shake your graveclothes off, shake your graveclothes

Shake your graveclothes off, shake your graveclothes,

Shake your graveclothes off, shake your graveclothe
