second single from waywardbreed's third album 'brother songs'


This weather’s refined, it’s been on my mind
That God has been kind to me, he drew a line for me
And showed me on which side to be

But here in my time, this heart’s been maligned
And I’m not inclined to see signs in front of me
That show me the way to be free

But it’s a fine, fine way to be

If I were kind, you’d be on my mind
And this heart would not need reminding
My head’s in the clouds with this thunder so loud
Makes me hard for the finding

It’s a fine, fine way to be
We’re sitting high in our reverie

But I get in trouble, and you’re bursting my bubble
Then the dogs come and break down my door
With their snapping jaws and their bloody paws

When I’ve atoned for this life lived alone
There’ll be some trouble for the making
When time is my own, well, my heart is long to roam
A hard habit that I’m breaking

It’s a fine, fine way to be
I’m sitting high where you’ll never be
We’re sitting high in our reverie
