Ben Harper – Temporary Remedy lyrics

I killed a snake with a bible
I was living a Johnny Cash song
I'm afraid for this I may be liable
So it's best I be moving
Moving along

Just a temporary remedy
Running through my
Running through my veins

Summer lasted through November
Funny when it's gone you miss cold
Words can be spoken for a lifetime
We can never hear until we're told

Just a temporary remedy - yeah
And is running through
Running through my veins

They tell me nothing is perfect
Then tell me why is it a word
Oh- Yesterday's news is tomorrow's blues
And now they're perfectly blurred

Temporary remedy
Running through
Running through my veins
Just a temporary remedy - yeah
Running through
Running through my veins
