GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS When It Flows

Lyrics From thetechnologylife GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS When It Flows Lyrics, singer by GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS

When it flows from the fingers
And turns to stone
It shatters with the touch
Feel the air, breathe it in
Turn the corner, take the bend
Give or take the bend
It’s a spiralling cork-screw path towards you
It’s a sinking, twisted path from me to you

For a second I saw you so clearly (clearly)
For a moment I knew you so dearly (dearly)
I looked into your eyes and into your mind
You were laughing like a statue come to life

The subtle piano raindrops
The creaking of the buildings and their cellos
The wind was our violin
The sky was a symphonic mural of stars
Hiding behind perfectly placed clouds
Because everything is the way it is
And everything is perfect in their imperfections
And everything is placed the best
And it is now, and it is here
And tomorrow is another now
Waiting to happen

The roar of an action silences all the words
The cry of an accomplishment
Drowns the whimper of ten thousand words
And we live in our actions and our reactions
And we live in our actions and our reactions

GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS Slim Pickings

Lyrics From thetechnologylife GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS Slim Pickings Lyrics, singer by GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS

She smelled like roses and whiskey, she looked like she’d ran the mile,
she could’ve been a good lay, back in the 80’s one day

Pickings are slim on a dime, and I guess she’ll do me fine,
throw back some shots at the bar, she lives around the corner, not far

I’m pinned against the wall, handcuffed to the bed,
my screams go down the hall, for this six foot blonde with long legs on

Woke up I was drunk and stoned, hell yeah I’m in the wrong home,
some guy screaming in my ear, guess I can’t stay for another..

GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS Gonna Make It Through This Year

Lyrics From thetechnologylife GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS Gonna Make It Through This Year Lyrics, singer by GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS

I am six feet under snow
And I have nowhere to go
The ice is thick and my feet are clamped
I know how my cards are stacked
Find the heat over a bay
Or in the scraps of someone’s plate
Guess I’ll leave it up to fate
It’s all I’ve got anyway

Gonna make it through this year
Gonna make it through this year
Gonna make it through

Gonna ride the bus to the other side
Of town, try my luck down over there
Where I did my best to explain
Nobody understands a word I say

Got a lot to be thankful for this year
But I guess you could say I’m down on my luck
Wonder where I will end up tonight
Wonder where I will get stuck

Gonna make it through this year
Gonna make it through this year
Gonna make it through
Gonna make it through

GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS Don’t Cry No Tears

Lyrics From thetechnologylife GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS Don’t Cry No Tears Lyrics, singer by GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS

Don’t cry, my sweet girl
Nothing I say is written in stone
Don’t cry, my sweet love
You won’t really be alone

I’ll help you pack your things
I’ll walk with you out to the car
I’ll hold on to the ring
I won’t forget the way things are

My sweet love

Your disappointed eyes
Are haunting me like my big lies
I see you glaring now
I see you staring in the fire

My sweet love

Don’t cry, my sweet girl
Nothing I say is written in stone
Don’t cry, my sweet love
You won’t really be alone

My sweet love
My sweet love

Don’t cry, my sweet girl
You won’t really be alone
Don’t cry, my sweet girl
You won’t really be alone

Don’t cry, my sweet girl
You won’t really be alone

GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS The Great Bear

Lyrics From thetechnologylife GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS The Great Bear Lyrics, singer by GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS

A weightless breath, the air alive
Swords of water cutting the sides through half-closed eyes
A marble curtain floating down
Swimming into fishes’ mouths and waving through

In the call of the wind
In the ways of the sea
You won’t believe
What’s up there
Tracing the great green pathways

A forest of arms turning into fins
Ancient veins on granite chins
And avian songs fill the air with notes diving in
The hard edges green with newly grown coats

Where do we draw the line?
And put this on the line?
Where do we draw the lines?
And stray so far with these designs

The night water’s deep
Kissing the lamb
Luminous and green
From magic hands
As if it springs up
As born from inside
The real spell surrounds
Transcendent and white

In the call of the wind
In the ways of the sea
In the lungs of the land
In the lines of the streams
You won’t believe
What’s up there
Tracing the great green pathways

GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS Don’t Leave Me Hanging

Lyrics From thetechnologylife GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS Don’t Leave Me Hanging Lyrics, singer by GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS

You had different hair when I saw you last
You flew away, flew and you could have far
But you did fight, you went so many rounds
Delivered one shot at a time

Don’t leave me hanging, don’t leave me hanging
Drowning in shallow water
Don’t leave me hanging, don’t leave me hanging
To start it all over again

The forest you planted, the sparks where they landed
It’s winter now, it’s cold so [?]
Your wings drying out, saying when hell freezes over
They’re straightened out, just wait it out

Even Sundays swimming where the current is slow
Through you mouth and the way you pronounce
The murmurs and babbling, wayward characters
One brush stroke at a time

Don’t leave me hanging, don’t leave me hanging
Drowning in shallow water
Don’t leave me hanging, don’t leave me hanging
To start it all over again

To start it all over again
Start it all over again

GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS Zero In The City

Lyrics From thetechnologylife GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS Zero In The City Lyrics, singer by GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS

Oh, you’ve been here before
Minus one, split and it?s done
Getting up every day
Minus one every way

Oh, but nothing?s the same
Minus two, no one to blame
Minus one in the street
A conceit in degrees
Minus two now we?re gone
Minus you now we?re done

So turn on your inner light
Zero in the city tonight

Oh, you?ve been here before
Minus one, split and it?s done

So turn on your inner light
Zero in the city tonight
Hard to feel a single thing inside
Zero in the city tonight

Oh, minus one
Minus two, minus you
