People Have A Way Lyrics

by Matt Pond PA

People have this way of knowing everything
They take one short look and then move on
If you ever wanted anything
Then you have to disagree

Make some time with the fire's coals
Who really knows if it isn't coal?

I am hardly shocked to learn it's everywhere
I read two short words and then passed out
If you ever needed anything
It's got to be more we can see

Like a silver glow after sleepless nights
In the melting dark with the losing light
Making shapes with the praying eyes
Don't ever be that terrified

Remember when we closed our eyes behind hotels
You spoke three short words and then went down
And if you ever needed anyone
All that's left is to agree

'Til the meadow shake and the tall grass hums
'Til the first light breaks and morning comes
There's no way around it's all getting down
We can take everything we've found

There's no way we can lose
When we're proving simple proofs
It's the best thing we can do
While the light is coming through
