Pedro The Lion - The Fleecing Lyrics




Deep green hills whose shoulders fade into thick grey
Tall wet grass whose flesh makes fools of grazing sheep
Whose fleecing makes a fool of me
Who shall I blame for this sweet and heavy trouble
For every stupid struggle I don't know
I could buy you a drink
I could tell you all about it
I could tell you why I doubt it and why I still believe
But I can't say it like I sing it
And I can't sing it like I think it
And I can't think like I feel it
And I don't feel a thing
Why I still believe it
Why I need it
Who shall I blame for this sweet and heavy trouble
For every stupid struggle I don't know
Why I still believe it
Why I need it
And what the pharisees don't see
We'd have more drinks
And speak of so many things
But I don't know you and you don't know me

    David Bazan is the most heart crushing and beautiful song writer of my generation period. His ability to capture deep emotions in simple songs is unparalleled.

  6. BoustroBistro

    This whole album is superb and sublime.

    "...But I can't say it like I sing it,
    and I can't sing it like I think it,
    and I can't think it like I feel it,
    and I don't feel a thing."

    then such a sweet Casio riff.

    Carmen Bondra
