Thursday Lyric: Shut Me Up, Joe Henry

The song wants to repeat just now 
It sings itself to show you how 
It throws away its finest line 
Just to keep the feel and time 
Just to keep the feel and time 
It throws away now it's finest line 

The word wants just to leave my tongue 
To turn your face and when that's done 
I've got no use for what it proves 
It only means the way you move 
It only means the way you move 
I've got no use now for what it proves 

Close your eyes and shut my mouth 
The day has worn it's welcome out 
It pats you down and cuffs your hands 
And makes it's bed right where you stand 
The prayer wants to believe in you 
And does in spite of all you do 

It sings itself just like a song 
When hope is weak and pride is strong 
When hope is weak and pride is strong 
It sings itself now just like a song 
The thought wants nothing more than to show 
How little now you really know 

It burns then it turns cold and mean 
Taking any offer sight unseen 
The song want to repeat just now 
It sings itself to show you how 

It throws away it's finest line 
Just to keep the feel and time 
Just to keep the feel and time 
It throws way it's finest line 
It throws away it finest line 
Just to keep the feel and time
