Cat Empire, The - Reasonably Fine Lyrics




I lost my shoes I lost my wife
I lost my keys I lost my kite
And though I'm young at heart I'm so much older

Subway eyes and banked up skies
And violent towns and frozen pies
And all them football crowds who lost are cold now

But you're the same as you and I'm the same as me
And hopefully we can find ways to let us be reasonably fine
Reasonably fine, at least to beat my drums in time

Suddenly I've realized
That I won't be here when I die
And life upon this plain is somehow fleeting

Time and all it's precious wine
Is somehow primed to make us whine
And fret even then when we should be sleeping

But you're the same as you and I'm the same as me
And hopefully we can find ways to let us be reasonably fine,
Reasonably fine, at least to play my pretty chimes

Empty cries and hollow toots
And all the signs that have no use
And fingers point accusingly are sinning

Humourless hypocrisy
And all the crimes we didn't see
The sigh that knows the devil might be winning

But you're the same as you and I'm the same as me
And hopefully we can find ways to let us be reasonably fine,
Reasonably fine, at least to let my music shine

And maybe it's the greatest test
A man's surrounded by his death
But reaches out and tastes the sweetest honey

That's how you make me feel
I love you more than death is real
It's sad but in the end it might be funny

That you're the same as you and I'm the same as me
And hopefully we can find ways to let us be reasonably fine,
Reasonably fine, at least to leave an open mind

    I lost my shoes I lost my wife 
    I lost my keys I lost my kite 
    And though I'm young at heart I'm so much older 

    Subway eyes and banked up skies 
    And violent towns and frozen pies 
    And all them football crowds who lost are cold now 

    But you're the same as you and I'm the same as me 
    And hopefully we can find ways to let us be reasonably fine 
    Reasonably fine, at least to beat my drums in time 

    Suddenly I've realized 
    That I won't be here when I die 
    And life upon this plain is somehow fleeting 

    Time and all it's precious wine 
    Is somehow primed to make us whine 
    And fret even then when we should be sleeping 

    But you're the same as you and I'm the same as me 
    And hopefully we can find ways to let us be reasonably fine, 
    Reasonably fine, at least to play my pretty chimes 

    Empty cries and hollow toots 
    And all the signs that have no use 
    And fingers point accusingly are sinning 

    Humourless hypocrisy 
    And all the crimes we didn't see 
    The sigh that knows the devil might be winning 

    But you're the same as you and I'm the same as me 
    And hopefully we can find ways to let us be reasonably fine, 
    Reasonably fine, at least to let my music shine 

    And maybe it's the greatest test

    But reaches out and tastes the sweetest honey 

    That's how you make me feel 
    I love you more than death is real 
    It's sad but in the end it might be funny 

    That you're the same as you and I'm the same as me 
    And hopefully we can find ways to let us be reasonably fine, 
    Reasonably fine, at least to leave an open mind

    Human warmth we all want. But what destroys, we all must take a stand against: locally or nationally come together and talk about, or more accurately; act against.

    There is hundreds more! If you like the Cats, try Blue King Brown, John Butler Trio, The Cactus Channel, Boy & Bear, Jess Harlen, Something For Kate, Pikelet, Cotton Sidewalk etc. etc. But that's just my taste! ;)

    I love listening to this album, to every line of every song. It is just remarkably poignant and insightful. I have not been listening to them for a long time but it is not difficult to see the group's genius. I wish the band all the best and hope I can watch them live some time :)
