Dan Bern - Rolling Away

Song Lyrics

Your hand is between my legs
The dog is between our bodies
As I wake up
You are rollin' from me
I am rolling from you

Time to join a new religion
Time to overthrow the state
Time to demand all my beliefs
Are in a new constitution
I can't stop you from cryin'
But sometimes,
I can lick away your tears

If you look in someone's eyes
More than two seconds now
You'd better be prepared to fight
I got too much fear
And too much neglect
Of magical things

I am rolling from you
You are rolling from me
We are rolling away

I caught a cold
And for two days straight
My ears have been plugged up
As if my body's sayin'
You don't need your ears
You don't use 'em anyway

We need more nose jobs
We need more hair relaxers
More magazines telling us
There's something wrong with your face
There's something wrong with your face
There's something wrong with your face
There's something wrong with your face

I am rolling from you
You are rolling from me
We are rollin' away

Some wild creature
Has taken command
I gave him the keys
And he's stompin' through the house
He has a very busy itinerary
He does not have much time for you

I wish I could give you everything
All of me
Just like before
This last time together
We did everything except fight
Aw, we used to fight so good

I am rolling from you
You are rolling from me
We are rollin' away

I see beautiful actresses
With terrible scripts
And I want to write them all
A great one
Don't worry, baby
I'll write you one too
But I'll also write one for Andie Macdowell

I'd love to trade places
With a dog for a day
To know what he thinks
And what he feels
Does he think about life?
Does he think about God?
Or just about his next meal, like us?

So often these days eating Indian food
Passes for spirituality
I don't meditate
I don't pray
But I eat two samosas every day

Go down Moses
Go down on me
I do not have the strength to fight
I only pray
You treat me gently
These are long, cold nights

I am rolling from you
You are rolling from me
We are rolling away

I cry every day
But beauty shows up
When you least expect to find it

I am rolling from you
You are rolling from me
We are rolling away

I cry every day
But beauty shows up
When you least expect to find it

I am rolling from you
You are rolling from me
We are rolling away

I am rolling from you
You are rolling from me
We are rolling away

I am rolling from you
You are rolling from me
We are rolling away
