David Berkeley – Jefferson lyrics

when you come down
when you come down
when you come down

jefferson i heard your tears fall down
over the fall of the rain
why is it you and i, were never that much the same
rain on the road across the deleware
nearly washed us away
how come philosophy folds in the light of the day
how come the leprosy ate everything away

a piece of the west broke away
a piece of the west broke away, yea
we are one like the riverstones
away, away yea
we are bones on the riverstones
washed up like the riverstones

in bethleham a baby boy was born,
born to build a bond
what was the fighting for,
who remembers the song
the boy was king he was a prodigy
in love with everything
why did the kingdom come spit on everyone
and why the confusion,
son the closer we cling to the gun
fall of the west begun

yea a piece of the west broke away
away, yea
we are one like the riverstones
away, away yea
we are bones on the riverstones
washed up like the riverstones

in pennsylvania theres a bridge that broke
the water washed it on by
why is it you and i buckled under the tide
jefferson we should of listened
should have answered the call
what did you want from me,
now the west will fall
and who did you hope to be,
now the west will fall
yea now the west will fall
yea now the west will fall

away, away yea
we are one like the riverstones
away, away yea.
we are bones on the riverstones
washed up like the riverstones
ride? on the riverstones
we are one like the riverstones
