(Sheryl Crow)


I spent a year in the mouth of a whale

With a flame and a book of signs

You'll never know how hard I've failed

Trying to make up for lost time


Once I believed in things unseen

I was blinded by the dark

Out of the multitude to me

He came and broke my heart


When the dust in the field has flown

And the youngest of hearts has grown

And you doubt you will ever be free

Don't bail on me


River is wide and oh so deep

And it winds and winds around

I dream we're happy in my sleep

Floating down and down and down


And the tide rushes by where we stand

And the earth underneath turns to sand

And we're waiting for someone to see

Don't bail on me


Tell ma I loved the man

even though I turned and ran

Lovely and fine I could have been

Laying down in the palm of his hand

Laying down in the palm of his hand

Laying there in the palm of his hand

Staying down in the palm of his hand


In the morning you wait for the sun

And secretly hope it won't come

But time washes everyone clean

Honey now, don't bail on me
