Lyrics

Nothin' really ends For things to stay the same, they have to change again Hello, my old friend You change your name, but not the ways you play pretend American Requiem Them big ideas (yeah), are buried here (yeah) Amen It's a lot of talkin' goin' on While I sing my song Can you hear me? I said, "Do you hear me?" Looker there, looker there, now Looker there, looker there Looker-looker, looker there, looker there Looker-looker, looker there, looker there Looker-looker, looker there, looker there (oh, yeah) Looker-looker, looker there, looker there It's a lot of chatter in here But let me make myself clear (oh) Can you hear me? (Huh) Or do you fear me? (Ow) Can we stand for somethin'? Now is the time to face the wind (Ow) Comin' in peace and love, y'all Oh, a lot of takin' up space Salty tears beyond my gaze Can you stand me? (Can you stand me? Can you stand me? Can you stand me?) Ooh, ah (Can you stand me? Can you stand me? Can you stand me?) Can we stand? (Can you stand me? Can you stand me? Can you stand me?) Can you stand with me? Can we stand for somethin'? Now is the time to face the wind Now ain't the time to pretend Now is the time to let love in Thinkin' to myself (thinkin' to myself) Oh, it's a lot of talkin' goin' on (oh) While I sing my song (yeah) Do you hear me when I say? Do you hear me when I say? Ah Looker there, looker there Looker, look Looker-looker-looker-looker-looker Looker-looker there, looker there L-l-l-l-l-l-l-l-l-l-looker there Oh, looker there, looker there Looker there, looker there (Can you stand me? Can you stand me? Can you stand me?) L-l-l-l-l-l-l-l-l-l-l (Can you stand me? Can you stand me? Can you stand me?) Can we stand for somethin'? Now is the time to face the wind (now is the time to face the wind) Now ain't the time to pretend Now is the time to let love in (to let love in) Together, can we stand? Looker there, looker in my hand The grand baby of a moonshine man Gadsden, Alabama Got folks down in Galveston, rooted in Louisiana They used to say I spoke, "Too country" And the rejection came, said I wasn't, "Country 'nough" Said I wouldn't saddle up, but If that ain't country, tell me, what is? Plant my bare feet on solid ground for years They don't, don't know how hard I had to fight for this When I sing my song (When I sing the song of Abraham) (When the angels guide and take my hand) (Oh, no) Goodbye to what has been Pretty house that we never settled in A funeral for fair-weather friends I am the one to cleanse me of my Father's sins American Requiem Them big ideas (yeah) are buried here (yeah) Amen
