Blackberry Stone Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, I own this field and I wrote this sky
And I have no reason to reason with you

I'd be sad that I never held your hand as you were lowered
But I'd understand that I'd never let it go
I'd be sad that I never held your hand as you were lowered
But I'd understand that the world does what it does

And you never did learn to let the little things go
And you never did learn to let me be
And you never did learn to let little people grow
And you never did learn how to see

But I whisper that I love this night
Now and for forever to your soul as it floats out off the window
To the world that you turned your back on
To the world that never really let you be

And I am lower now and lower still
And you did always say that one day I would suffer
You did always say that people get their pay
You did always say that I was going places
And that you wouldn't have it any other way

But I couldn't turn my back on a world
For what I like wouldn't let me
But I couldn't turn my back on a world
For what I like and I needed

And I couldn't turn my back on a world
For what I like wouldn't let me
And I couldn't turn my back on a world
For what I like and I needed

And I shouldn't turn my back
On sweet smelling blackberry stone
