Patty Griffin – Under These Clouds lyrics

She says I deserve much better than this
It's getting pretty plain to see
She tells her boss, "here's my butt,
Why don't you give it a kiss-
You got all you're gonna get outta me"
Twenty years ago with time in a glass
Graduation day to pave the way
Nothing to show but a life moving too fast
And a fear of almost everything
And a fear of almost everything

But they say get down under these clouds
I was born down under these clouds
So I stand up and sing it out loud
Someone's still alive under their shroud
And I don't wanna die
Under these clouds

Her momma tried real hard not to pass it along
And so her Momma did before that
Somewhere, some day,
Someone's singin' their song
How everything good goes bad
And it really was a gradual thing
Passed as easy as a cigarette
You wake up one day wrapped in a ball of string
Feelin' nothing good's happened to you yet
Feels like nothing good's happened to you yet

But they say get down under these clouds
I was born down under these clouds
So I stand up and sing it out loud
Someone's still alive under their shroud
And I don't wanna die
Under these clouds
