Lyrics

"amazon"

"Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me."

"O.K."


Understand that you've gotta be givin' me a

I got nothing but I'm gonna be givin' you

Expect I have forgetten ev...er, no-one

It's repeater better wanna be beatin' you

It's a call that your gonna be goin' nowhere.


(alternate interpretation)

Hey Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me

Okay. . .


Understand that the colors are given midnight

I got nothing, but the numbers are killing you

Every night when my pocket is a stairway

It could feel like the numbers are beating you

Feel the cold when the numbers are going nowhere

"AMAZON"

By the time you’re natural, by the time you die

I’ll take my head and spin it for you,

I’ll just look around

And I call you liar - And I call you dead

You've come and poisoned all the things that I once sat upon


Everybody’s hungry, everybody’s high

We’ll sit around and ask ourselves if it was all a lie

And I already told you

And I already see

But you have got to know yourself and so I let it slide


Can we be together? Can you hold my hand?

It takes forever for the sound to get around

And I already love you

And I already want

But will we all just soar?
