Collective Soul - Porch Swing Lyrics




Everybody swears, they care, they share
Opinions I don't wanna hear
Everybody lies then tries to hide
Underneath their social fears

I am made of simple thread, a common man
Wanting peace for one and all
I am just a comedy in life's symphony
Listening for some resolve

So, I won't mind, mind when you're gone
No, I won't mind, mind when you're gone
I'll just be here on my porch swing
Rocking all day long

Everybody's bruised from news that use
Words to further their own cause
Everybody needs to bleed to see
We're all humans after all

I am made of simple thread, a common man
Wanting peace for one and all
I am just a comedy in life's symphony
Listening for some resolve

So, I won't mind, mind when you're gone
No, I won't mind, mind when you're gone
I'll just be here on my porch swing
Rocking all day long

Let the summer breeze
Cool our needs, right or wrong
Let tomorrow bring
Love to move us on
'Til then, I'll be here on my porch swing
Rocking all day long
I'll just be here on my porch swing
'Til I write the next song

Rocking on my porch swing
All night long
Rocking on my porch swing
All night long
Rocking on my porch swing
All night long

  7. Scott L. Royal

    Awesome thing about CS is the hard hitting guitars that feed our need to GO. And then songs like Porch Swing that are good for Our Soul.

  9. Steffen Dass

    The band played in Trinidad on Saturday Sept 14th, and did this live for the very first time. Wish I had recorded it, but was too busy enjoying the show. It's one of the best tracks on Blood.

  14. T Boy

    It's been a long time since I just played a single track over and over. Quintessential CS!

  15. sonic jet

    This song by Collective Soul has some politics in the lyrics. Its mostly about the overheated debate between those who want to protect Americas traditions and those progressive liberals who want to change everything: ITS MOSTLY ABOUT THE RACE RIOTS IN CHAROLETTESVILLE, BLACK LIVES MATTER AND THE METOO MOVEMENT. Theres some political, religious and social discontent from some of the newer Collective Soul songs , to be honest

    john mahoney codd

    "those who want to protect Americas [sic] traditions"...a truly wonderful way of saying that certain white people should rule the country, and be able to fuckover anyone they want. If only we could still beat, whip and kill people whenever we wanted...

    1st Feather

    Ignore the troll, just enjoy the music

  16. Colin St. Amour

    Happy birthday to me

  30. penyuwan

    The guitar riff in the beginning reminded me of their song 'After All'. The vocal is A though in this.

    Lee Fiutko

    I agree a few songs bring back the 5th album to mind.

  31. NAMRON

    One of my top 3 tracks from the album. Easily captures the flavor of CS music at its best. Not too harsh to my ears. Cool sound, moves my body, I just need to raise my arms, and hold a lighter in my hands!

  32. Ser Smiles

    Love the vocals in this one
