Dave Matthews Band - "Raven" lyrics

Raven
(from recently released album "Busted Stuff")


What you got, what you got in your hand
Father said to son
I got the whole world here daddy
Between my fingers and my thunb
Well you take care of it please
For it's the only one
Well it'd take me a lifetime old man
To undo what you done
Undo what you done

Oh, come on now, boy, think
What would Jesus do
He'd shake his head like a angry mother spoke the boy
And say I didn't what I could do
But you take care of it please
For it's the only one you got
And it'd take ten lifetimes boy
To undo what I've done

Boy shrugged, walked away
The man stood and watched as he was leaving
Boy just walked away
The man stood alone thinking

One hand is bleeding and the other hand holds a gun
While everything is open
Oh everything is shut down, down, down
Begin to ending
Is really just to go round and round and round
Another stand here
The ground beneath is nothing more than one point of view
What you got, what you got in your head'
Your secret's safe with me
Well I found the truth, friend
Let me whisper in your ear
Take good care of it please
It's the only one there is
Can I twist it please'
Can I give it just a little twist'

Boy shrugged, walked away
The man stood and watched that boy disapearing
Boy just walked away
The man stood there twisting

One hand is bleeding oh as the other hand holds the gun
Everything is open now
Everything is shut down, down, down
No one is old here
Even if, even if you're sure
You never know it all
The ground beneath is nothing more than my point of view yeah

Boy shrugged, walked away
The man stood and watched the boy as he was leaving
Boy just walked away
The man stood there twisting

One hand is open as the other hand holds the gun
Everything is undone or
Everything coming down, down, down
No one is old here
No even if, even if you know
You never know it all
And nothing more than nothing more than my point of view

Boy shrugged, walked away
The man stood and watched as he was leaving
The man just stood there twisting
