all Indigo Girls lyrics



Strange Fire
I come to you with strange fire
I make an offering of love
The incense of my soul is burned
By the fire in my blood
I come with a softer answer
To the questions that lie in your path
I want to harbor you from the anger
Find a refuge from the wrath

This is a message
A message of love
Love that moves from the inside out
Love that never grows tired
I come to you with strange fire
Fire

Mercenaries of the shrine
Now who are you to speak for god
With haughty eyes and lying tongues
And hands that shed innocent blood
Now who delivered you the power
To interpret calvary
You gamble away our freedom
To gain your own authority

Find another state of mind
You know it's time we all learned
To grab hold
Strange fire burns
With the motion of love

Fire
Fire

When you learn to love yourself
You will dissolve all the stones that are cast
Now you will learn to burn the icing sky
To melt the waxen mask
I said to have the gift of true release
This is a peace that will take you higher
Oh I come to you with my offering
I bring you strange fire

This is a message
A message of love
Love that moves from the inside out
Love that never grows tired
I come to you with strange fire
Fire
Fire
I come to you with strange fireback to top
Crazy Game
Crazy game
I never should have started to play
But now you couldn't tear me away
Love is sweet sweet baby
So good to you
And so bad
And I fear
The situations clear before my eyes
Confusion wants to break me and it tries
I've been a little bit stronger from the start
Listen to my heart

Cause if you're ever believing
I'm thinking of leaving
Look to the moon
Cause it's a fact
She may go wandering about
But she always comes shining back
And it's true
I'll wait for you

You dry your tears
Don't be thinking grey is here to stay
Sometimes everything is in the way
You're wanting to look at it
Turn your view around
Dry your eyes
Eyes like yours should carry a smile
I haven't seen them sparkle in a while
Give it one more try
Dry your eyes

Cause if you're ever believing
I'm thinking of leaving
Look to the moon
Cause it's a fact
She may go wandering about
But she always comes shining back
And it's true
I'll wait for youback to top
Left Me a Fool
Everybody loves you
And they want to know your story
You go riding out a mystery
Concealed in all your glory
But when it comes to flesh and bones
You remind me of shallot
Only made of shadows
Even though you're not

I remember how I spent
All my energy and time
With affected conversation
Trying to pry inside your mind
You are as beautiful as truth
And as empty as a shell
And I came to you one night
And it made me feel like hell

Oh to reach through all your surface
Just to find an empty pool
And to suffer all your pride
As I lay down by your side
And you swallowed up my heart
And left me a fool
Left me a fool

Everybody loves a hero
An image to create
The antithesis of everything
Inside ourselves we hate
But you'd better close your eyes
When it's time for them to die
Because you'd hate to think the life
You'd built upon them was a lie

Oh to reach through all your surface
Just to find an empty pool
And to suffer all your pride
As I lay down by your side
And you swallowed up my heart
And left me a fool
Left me a fool

I resign myself to silence
I will never blow your cover
No one ever has to know
Who the hero took for lover
But it has come to mind as you blaze on
As brilliant as a star
How many you've left behind
How many casualties there are

Oh to reach through all your surface
Just to find an empty pool
And to suffer all your pride
As I lay down by your side
And you swallowed up my heart
And left me a fool
Left me a foolback to top
I Don't Wanna Know
Well you followed me this far
Did you find out what's inside
Can you tell me what I'm doing
Is it something I should hide
I don't know for sure
I don't wanna find out what I left there for

I'm not scared and I'm not lonely
Saving all my money or my breath
I'm not looking for an answer
Or anyone to second guess no

You told me all your secrets
And I filled you up with lies
Now I'm living honestly
Because I said goodbye
I can't go home anymore
I don't wanna find out what I left there for

I'm not scared and I'm not lonely
Saving all my money or my breath
I'm not looking for an answer
I'm not asking anyone to second guess

I was losing all my senses
I was losing all control
It was getting so offensive
Now you want me back for more
And I just won't go

If you think you know the answers
You've got a lot of gall
Cause it gives you satisfaction
Knowing nothing at all
I don't care anymore
And I don't wanna find out what I left there for
What I left there for

I'm not scared and I'm not lonely
Saving all my money or my breath
I'm not looking for an answer
I'm not asking anyone to take a second guess no

I'm not scared and I'm not lonely
Saving all my money or my breath yeah
I'm not looking for an answer
I'm not asking anyone to take a second guess no
Take a second guess yeah
Take a second guess yeah
(hey)
Take a second guess yeah
(hey)
Take a second guess yeah
Take a second guess
(I can't talk to you)
Take a second guess
(yeah, yeah I know)
Take a second guess
(well I gotta go okay)
Take a second guess
Take a second guess
(over one billion served)
Take a second guess
Oh yeahback to top
Hey Jesus
Hey jesus it's me
I don't usually talk to you
But my baby's gonna leave me
And there's something you must do
I am not your faithful servant
I hang around sometimes
With a bunch of your black sheep
But if you make my baby stay
I'll make it up to you
And that's a promise I will keep

Hey jesus it's me
I'm the one who talked to you yesterday
And I asked you please please
For a favor but my baby's gone away
Went away anyway
And I don't really think it's fair
You've got the power to make us all
Believe in you
And then we call you in our despair
And you don't come through

Hey jesus it's me
I'm sorry
I don't remember all I said
I had a few, no, too many
And they went straight to my head
And made me feel like I could argue with god
But you know it's easy for you
You got friends all over the world
You had the whole world waiting for your birth
But now I ain't got nobody
I don't know what my life's worth

I'm not gonna call on you any more
I'm sure you've got a million things to do
All I was trying to do
Was to get through to you
Get through to you
Because when I die and I get up to your doors
I don't even know if you're gonna let me in the place
How come I gotta die
To get a chance to talk to
You face to faceback to top
Get Together
Love is but a song we sing
And fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
You may not know why

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Some may come and some may go
We will surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunlight
Fading in the grass yeah

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

If you hear the song we sing
You will understand
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It's there at your command

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now
Try to love one another right now
Try to love one another right nowback to top
Walk Away
We use to walk in each other arms
It was one on one, that's what you said
Now the moon is a sliver in our eye
We stumble bleeding on this broken glass

There was too much repetition
(over and over and over again)
You know we're past the point of sane
(over and over and over again)
All this broken glass you left behind
Won't let you make a clean, clean
I said walk away

Now we're crossing from the sacred ground
Where we once held each other, and each other's names
And the words are sparse, and we feel so profound
But babe you know all I feel, honey I feel so ashamed

Ah cause there was, there was too much repetition
Ah you know you know you know
You know we're past the point of sane
Ah oh
All this broken glass we left behind
It won't let us make a clean, clean
I said walk away
Ah yeah walk away
Oh no walk away
Baby baby walk away
Ah oh
I said walk away
Walk away
Oh no walk away
Baby baby walk away

There was a time when we gave everything
And it was true babe, true enough to bleed
(true enough to bleed baby)
But now you feel that you've got nothing left
If there's nothing to lose babe
Ah babe don't you know by now
Then there's nothing to gain
Ah no walk away
Ah no walk away
Oh baby baby walk away

You know I'd still hold you if I could
Its hard not to try and change try to change your mind
I'm a pillar of salt and I want you to understand me
Cause honey this is the last time, it's the last time
I ever look behind
Ah yeah walk away
Ah no walk away
Baby baby walk away
All right
Let's go

Ah I said walk away
Ah yeah walk away
Ah no walk away
Baby baby walk away
Ah no I said walk away
(don't you know we used to walk)
Come on now baby walk away
(in each others arms)
I said close your eyes walk away
(hand in hand)
Baby baby try to listen to me I want to tell you
(that's what you said to be baby yeah)
Now walk away
(now the moon)
Ah yeah walk away
(is a sliver in our eyes)
Try to learn to look inside walk away
(and we stumble)
Baby baby baby baby baby baby
(walking on broken glass)
I said walk away come on now baby
Walk away
I said listen to me
Walk away baby baby
Now I've got something that I want to tell you
Walk away
Ah no walk away
Ah baby
I said you've got to know by now
Come on babyback to top
Make It Easier
I'm in search of greener pastures
Don't like my garden's what I said
Although I'm working harder than last year
I'm still deep in the red
I am rowing as hard as I can
And they're selling me up a stream
I'm always one more step away
From the american dream

I got a chip on my shoulder
About the size of a mental block
I've got someone on the telephone
Trying to sell me a future in stock
Maybe I work too hard to be happy
And I should practice letting go
But it's hard not to rock the boat
When you're sailing against the undertow

I want to slide into the black
And wear the black mask
I might not get what I lack
But it doesn't hurt to ask
If I want to sail
I need my life to be breezier
I said please God or someone
Make it easier

I went to sunday school every sunday
Swallowed the bait and I got the hook
When I needed something someday
I would read the good book
Tell me what does it take to get ahead
Sometimes I know I'd sell my soul
When it looks like everybody else is flying
And I'm crawling in the hole

Well maybe if I open my own business
Maybe if I buy a lottery ticket
Someone tell me what is the secret
To getting out of the thicket
Give me more than just a sample
I need a whole lot of glory
My life become an example
Of the american success story

I want to slide into the black
And wear the black mask
I might not get what I lack
But it doesn't hurt to ask
If I want to sail
I need my life to be breezier
I said please God or someone
Make it easier

I want to slide into the black
And wear the black mask
I might not get what I lack
But it doesn't hurt to ask
If I want to sail
I need my life to be breezier
I said please God or someone
Make it easier
Make it easier
Make it easierback to top
You Left It up to Me
When I let you go
I cursed myself with empty hands
Strong enough to watch you walk
But not enough to understand
With spiteful eyes you burn for my grace
I was trying to stand outside of this
You were trying to save face

You can say that I don't care
I don't care
You can hope that we still
Have something left to share
But just between you baby and me
Just between me baby and you
There's nothing there

I finally found someone I can hold
You ask me to defend myself
As if I shouldn't be so bold well
Get that look off of your face
I don't have the time
You don't have the place

To say that I don't care
I don't care
To hope that we still
Have something left to share
And just between me baby and you
Just between you baby and me
There's nothing there

Baby what are you gonna do
I can't salvage any truth for you
Everybody else already knows
It hurts you to realize
So leave well enough
Enough alone

And you don't need my hands
To help you understand
You don't need to hear my voice
(you have no choice)
So don't be throwing stones
The closer we get
The harder they come
Now even if your feeling alone
Don't come home
Cause when it was up to you
When it was up to you
You left it up to me
Oh you left
Oh you left
Oh you left it up to me
When it was up to you
You left it up to meback to top
Land of Canaan
You can go to the east to find your
Your inner hemisphere
You say we're under the same sky babe
Your bound to realize honey it's not that clear
I'm not your promised land oh no
I'm not your promised one
I'm not the land of canaan sweetheart
Waiting for you under the sun

I'm lonely tonight
I'm missing you now
I'm wanting your love
And you're giving it out
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight

Well, the meanings changed
For what it's worth
It's just a senseless game
Well I should think of love
But it's fear every time I hear
Honey your heartbeat strain
It's not the fallen man
It's not the call of time
It's just the london skyline sweetheart
Telling me you're not mine

I'm lonely tonight
I'm missing you now
I'm wanting your love
And you're giving it out
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight

My blood is running dry
My skin is, my skin is growing thin
For every time you find yourself
You loose a little bit of me honey from within
It's just a raging cycle
Why can't we bring it all to the end of the line
From inside this existence, sweetheart
Time is not on my side

I'm lonely tonight
I'm missing you now
I'm wanting your love
And you're giving it out
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight

I'm not your promised land
(I'm lonely tonight)
I'm not your promised one
(honey I'm trying to tell you that I'm lonely tonight)
I'm not your promised land
I'm not your promised one
I'm not the land of canaan
(I'm lonely tonight)
I'm not your land of canaan
(I'm lonely tonight)
I'm not the land of canaan sweetheart
Waiting for you under the sun
I'm lonely tonightback to top

Everybody's Waiting for Someone to Come Home
through the wind and the rain
i hear my mother's cry
she says "i know my baby's out there"
just couldn't bear to ask her why
from my womb into the world
lord i wish the child would call
you know i'm needing some company
she makes my life so full"
take my advice
go ahead and live your own life
but everybody's waiting
for someone to come home

like the fire waits for the sand
this world is burning
with the tension of human hands
waiting to be cleansed
waiting for their ace of spades
they say "i sure hope he's coming
'cause i feel like i've just been saved"
take my advice
go ahead and live while you're alive
everybody's waiting
for someone to come home

"come to me and cleanse my soul"
i'm free, i'm free
"only with you am i whole"
can't you see that i am me
"i'll be waiting by the window"
i'll be heading for the door

i was driving down highway 85 yeah
had to pull off the road
just to hear my radio coming in clearer
lord this life's so full i said
why do we ask for more
while we're waiting for the man to come
we forgot what he's coming for
won't take my advice
go ahead and live while you're alive
everybody's waiting
for someone to come home
"i'll be waiting by the window"
everybody's waiting
for someone to come home
"i'll be waiting by the window"
everybody's waiting
for someone to come home
come homeback to top
