Indigo Girls – Joking lyrics
You said the world was magic
I was wide-eyed and laughing
We were dancing up to the bright side
Forget about your ego
Forget about your pride
And you will never have to compromise
And you were only joking
You were only joking brother

We talked about our mothers
Kissed the wounds of our fathers
I could have been your sister
I would have been your brother
You kissed me like I was a soldier
Headed for a war
I dying man but I don't know what for
And you were only joking
You were only joking brother
You were only joking
(Wide-eyed and laughing)
You were only joking brother
(Dancing up to the bright side)

Gravel and glass on the bottom of my feet
I bruised my heels on the swollen street
We were girls in bars
Boys on the town
Bumping like a pinball off a careless crowd
You said good friends are hard to come by
I laughed and bought you a beer
It's too corny to cry
Well sentiment given
Oh sentiment lost
You shake it off with a smirk and a toss
And you were only joking
You were only joking brother
You were only joking
Were only joking brother
And you were only joking
(gravel and glass on the bottom of my feet)
You were only joking brother
(I bruised my heels on the swollen street)
You kissed me like a soldier heading for a war
(Joking)
I'm a dying man
(You were only joking)
And you were only joking
(Don't know what for)
(Dying man)
You were only joking brother
(Don't know what for)
And you were only
And you were only
And you were only joking
Brother

One two three four

Ah yeah

(Wide eyed and laughing)
Sha la
(Dancing up to the bright side)
Sha la
(wide eyed and laughing)
Sha la
(dancing up to the bright side)
