Perfect world – Indigo girls

Standard

perfect world

We get to be a ripple in the water

We get to be a rock that’s thrown

We get to be a boy on the bridge

Standing over the reservoir

I see the water lapping on the shoreline

Buried forest of a man made lake

Cemeteries are laying underneath it

Your heart like a damn embrace

We’re floating we’re swimming

And at this moment we are forgetting

What we caused what it takes

The one perfect world when we look the other way

I’m okay if I don’t look a little closer

I’m okay I if don’t see beyond the shore

I’m okay I don’t have to do the killing or

Know what the killing is for

We’re talking we’re driving

And in this moment we are denying

What we caused what it takes

The one perfect world when we look the other way

One perfect world…when we look the other way

You can see beyond the middle isolation

And the miracle of daybreak doesn’t move you anymore

Connect the points and then see the constellations

As the night comes down on the reservoir

We’re swimming we’re floating

And in this moment we are beholden

To what we’ve caused to what it takes

The one perfect world

Can we learn to live another way

Perfect world…can we learn to live another way

One…perfect worldGet to be a ripple in the water
