The Black Crowes – Tornado lyrics

Sit down by the window and watch the tornado
We'll wait for the sheriff to bring some dirty water by
Help yourself out to some of my disaster
Its movin' faster Than the last time I was on speed
Don't you know what I mean?
Cause it's ways and means
And your ways are mean by definition
I could fill this page up with this boys ambitions
But I don't audition
Oh yes that's true
I could never act for you

Heard you saw some friends of my last winter
Then again, I heard you disappeared into ether
I don't laugh and you smile because I'm tired
I'm feelin wired oh so weary and oh so old
Am I being too bold?
Bold enough to ask you if you really love me
In my shadows and oh yes in my breeze
And just one last thing
Please let me say
And that is please, oh please, please stay away, from me

Let's do that one again...
