Paroles officielles de la chanson "Bowl Of Oranges"

The rain it started tappin'
On the window near my bed
There was a loophole in my dreamin'
So I got out of it
And to my surprise
My eyes were wide and already open
Just my nightstand and my dresser
Where those nightmares had just been
So I dressed myself and left then
Out into the gray streets
But everything seemed different
And completely new to me
The sky, the trees, houses
Buildings, even my own body
And each person I encountered
I couldn't wait to meet
And I came upon a doctor
Who appeared in quite poor health
I said, "There's nothing I can do for you
That you can't do for yourself"
He said, "Oh yes you can, just hold my hand"
So I sat with him awhile
Then I asked him how he felt, he said, "I think I'm cured
No, in fact, I'm sure of it
Thank you, stranger
For your therapeutic smile"
So that's how I learned the lesson
That everyone's alone
And your eyes must do some raining
If you're ever gonna grow
And when crying don't help
You can't compose yourself
It's best to compose a poem
An honest verse of longing
Or a simple song of hope
That's why I'm singing baby don't worry
'Cause now I got your back
And every time you feel like crying
I'm gonna try and make you laugh
And if I can't if it just hurts too bad
Then we'll wait for it to pass
And I will keep you company
For those days so long and black
And we'll keep working on the problem
We know we'll never solve
Our love's uneven remainders
Our lives are fractions of a whole
But if the world could remain within a frame
Like a painting on a wall
Then I think, we'd see the beauty
Then we'd stand staring in awe
At our still lives posed like a bowl of oranges
Like a story told by the fault-lines in the soil
