Living too Close to the Ground Lyrics

by Everly Brothers

Listen and hear each word
Stop or youll miss the birds
They sing in the top of the trees
Sometimes when you look, you cant see
But up there you will know that its round
Youre living too close to the ground

Come where the lights are grand
Leave now without a plan
You can get away if you choose
Confess it, youve nothing to lose
And I can show you where its found
Youre living too close to the ground

Rush so youll pass it by
Dont let it catch your eye
Dont stop you might look a fool
Standing with love in your eyes
Trying hard to believe what youve found
Youre living too close to the ground

I once held her close to me
Listened and heard her breathe
Just like I have done all my life
Her heart was the image of mine
Ah, but my wings just couldnt be found
I was living too close to the ground
