Brett Dennen – Surprise, Surprise lyrics
Dark clouds gather in the afternoon
Come together just to cry
Seagulls struggling against the wind
Falling out of the sky

Grandma's gathering aluminum cans
In a rusty shopping cart
Born-againers get their lives together
While the whole world's falling apart

Open up your eyes
It's happening all around you
If it hasn't found you
Well you know it's just a matter of time

Surprise surprise
What do you think the world owes you
It's not the way it's supposed to go
Well you know it's just a matter of time

Songbird sitting in a tree house
With a trumpet to her lips
I'm laying on my back in the tall green grass
Staring up at the eclipse
Whispers lurking in the alley behind
Where the children where no shoes
Call girls and corner kids hustling
Saying what do you got to lose

Open up your eyes
It's happening all around you
If it hasn't found you
Well you know it's just a matter of time
Its just a matter of

Surprise surprise
What do you think the world owes you?
It's not the way it's supposed to go
Well you know it's just a matter of time

And there's nowhere you can run to
Because the eyes they are upon you
You you you you you

Some of them coming up hard and hungry
Stepping up to take your turn
Some of them throwing their money in the fire
Just to watch it burn

Open up your eyes
It's happening all around you
If it hasn't found you
Well you know it's just a matter of time

Surprise surprise
What do you think the world owes you
It's not the way it's supposed to go
Well you know it's just a matter of time
It's just a matter of
It's a matter of
Just a matter of
It's a matter of time
A matter of
It's just a matter of
A matter of
Just a matter of time
It's just a matter of time
