The Cat Empire – Don't Throw Your Hands Up lyrics

(Verse)
I wait to the river, but the river was dry
Saw a little bird that caught my eye
Keep on running where you’re going
I tell you something I think’s worth knowing.

Cities come and cities go,
Time can move fast and time can move slow,
You’ve only got two arms on your shoulders

(Chorus)
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.

(Verse)
I went to the mountain, what did I see?
A white bearded man with a color TV
He said “can you believe these kids today
Half of them are murderers and half of them pray”
For what, for what, I can’t reply
You sit and you stare as they pass you by
The rivers, the mountains, the parallel sea
Oh man, oh man, now listen to me.

(Chorus)
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.

(Bridge)
Why not if love a little bit harder
Your sons don’t mind the sins of your fathers
Well then I’m dancing up in the sky now
Why not live life a little bit?
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.

(Chorus)
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
Don’t throw, don’t throw,
Don’t throw your hands up only to cry.
