Porch Lyrics

by Pearl Jam

What the fuck is this world running to?
You didn't leave a message
At least I could have learned your voice
One last time

Daily minefield, this could be my time
How 'bout you?
Would you hit me?
Would you hit me?

All the bills go by
And initiatives are taken up by the middle
There ain't gonna be any middle any more
And the cross I'm bearing home
Ain't indicative of my place
Left the porch, left the porch

Hear my name, take a good look
This could be the day
Hold my hand, walk beside me
I just need to say

Hear my name, take a good look
This could be the day
Hold my hand, lie beside me
I just need to say

What can I take? I just want to be
I know that I would not ever touch you
Hold you, feel you
Ever hold, never again
