Jordan Zevon – Insides Out lyrics

Looking to the sky with questions
Wondering how this misdirection
Came to be the street my life has paved
Why the voices so familiar
Fade into the hemisphere
The more I crave
The more they slip away
There's no happily-ever-after
Just some tears we smear with laughter

At least I've got pictures and memories
Saving your voice on my phone machine
The bits and the pieces of something that almost feels like a dream
A drink, a pill, but still you can't escape reality
When you're turning insides out
Finding out just what you're all about

Now it's getting closer to the surface
Feel the itch, but I can't scratch it
All filed up with no place to go
Scabs that I've grown closer to
That feel too deep to dare remove
Beneath the skin, the bone, the veins, the soul
Truth be told I'm in the thick
But feeling thinner by the minute

At least I've got pictures and memories
Saving your voice on my phone machine
The bits and the pieces of something that almost feels like a dream
A drink, a pill, but still you can't escape reality
When you're turning insides out
Searching for some solid ground
Who knew you could scream so loud
Now that you're turning insides out

Headed straight to ordinary
Settled on a plot of bland
But all the best laid
Rarely pay a worthy dividend
And so I'll tread where most would stray
And when I land flat on my face
I'll brush the dirt and stand up with a smile
At least they'll never say I didn't try

At least I've got pictures and memories
Saving your voice on my phone machine
The bits and the pieces of something that almost feels like a dream
A drink, a pill, but still you can't escape reality
When you're turning insides out
This is what it's all about
Bailing out the boat before you drowned
Now that you're turning insides out
This is what it's all about
Who knew you could scream so loud
Now that you're...
