Shake it out, shake it out.
God, I need another and another and another
I can feel it now.
I felt the Lord in my father's house.
And I could see, I could see,
standing we were seventeen, make it clean.
Are you the living ghost of what I need?
Are you gonna get the best of me?
We will see.

'Cause I'm done being done with the funeral at least for now.
Are you tired of being alone, are you tired of being alone?

Shake it out, shake it out.
Tired of another and, another wasn't
really what I wanted, so we bled it out
over the floor of my neighbors house.
And I could see, I could see,
God I've never seen a thing so complete.
I am the living ghost of what you need.
I am everything eternally.
And God just speak.

'Cause I'm done being done with the funerals at least for now.
Are you tired of being alone, are you tired of being alone?

(So speak to me.)

Oh God, you gotta shake it out, shake it out.
You gotta take it out, take it down.
I gotta come around
I need it now more(?) than I ever have.
Oh God, you gotta shake it out, shake it out.
You've gotta break it down, break it out.
You've gotta jump around.
I feel it now more than I ever have.

I felt the Lord begin
to peel off all my skin.
And I felt the weight within
reveal the bigger mess
that you can't fix.

I swear, I swear I'll go.
Lead me into my home.
Don't stop, don't ever go.
I swear you'll never know.
You'll never know.

Oh God, you gotta shake it out.
Shake it out!
You gotta take it out.
Take it down!
I gotta come around
I need it now more than I ever have.
Oh God, you gotta shake it out, shake it out.
You've gotta break it down, break it out.
