Paroles de la chanson Humble Passenger par Dr. Dog

I set out before the sun came up
Brought my light and my canoe
Convinced that’s all I needed
Lord knows that wasn’t true…

So I kept my lantern low, until my house was out of view,
And by and by I reached the ocean, as the day made its debut,
And in the misty summer morning, I found myself under attack
And in the panic of that water, I knew there was no turning back.
So I made my peace and I set my course for an island to the west,

For on that shore of sycamore, I’ll find myself some rest,
Once I hid my boat and covered my oars, I fell down into that shade,
And I dreamt that at my ripe old age I was back in the second grade.
And my momma she was calling for me and the bus came down my street
But I did not know what shoes to wear, and I could not find my feet

So I floated down the hall, through the door, and everything went pale
I climbed aboard that yellow bus as it turned into a whale
And then it swallowed me up whole, yeah it thrashed me all around,
Well it chewed me up, and it spit me out, miles above the ground

And I was falling for the water that was boiling in a cup
And I tried to scream, but had no steam, and that’s when I woke up.
When I came to I was so confused, how long was I asleep?
The loneliness I felt right then was enough to make me weep,

Then I heard the voice inside my head, lit a fire under me,
It said, "Your fear is gonna cost a lot, but your courage comes for free".
So I thanked that little island, I paddled off without a care
For I know not where I’m going, but I’ll know it when I’m there,

And I hope that no-one’s a-missin’ me back in my home town
For together we will always be, even though I’m not around.
And the sea swirled by like a ballet, and it sang its gentle song,
But a distant rumble warned me it wouldn’t be that way for long,

So I spoke out and I told the night, "This life’s not only mine,
I am just your humble passenger, and I trust your grand design".
By and by the clouds came lumbering through and the raindrops staggered in,
And the waves lined up, two by two, for the show would soon begin

And the lightning bolts ripped through the sky like sharks that missed a meal,
And the wind went up so hard and cold just like a wall of steel
Then all at once, the sea below picked me up a mile high
As it threw me to the ocean’s floor I heard the night’s reply:

"Well you see, my humble passenger
The sorrow that I feel?
For I do not know where you belong
And I do not want this wheel" dispose d’un accord de licence de paroles de chansons avec la Société des Editeurs et Auteurs de Musique (SEAM)
