Rosanne Cash – Everyone But Me lyrics
[Verse 1]
We plow a similar field
Of all the bones of remembered hearts
And all the crackpot dreams
And all the backroom art

[Verse 2]
We run a similar course
On a track laid with broken glass
So tie your shoes real tight
It goes by real fast

[Chorus]
Mother and Father
Now that you're gone
It's not nearly long enough
Still it seems too long

[Verse 3]
I gave up my name for you
Gave up my edge, it made me bleed
And I pleased everyone
I mean everyone but me

[Verse 4]
There behind the closing door
I'm not enough and then too much
Our strange and beautiful lives
Fade and turn to dust

[Chorus]
Mother and Father
Now that you're gone
It's not nearly long enough
Still it seems too long
It's just wasn't long enough
Still it seems too long
