Oshima Brothers lyrics

1. the way it goes

Time has come 
I got to travel on to find 
The places I’ve been coming from
Everyone
They all know who I am but I
Can’t see what I am running from

‘Cause I sometimes hit the road
Without a second thought I go
And I lose myself to the things that I don’t know
That’s just the way it goes

Little girl
Please put your hand in mine to slow
The pace that I’ve been moving on
‘Til the world
Falls from the sky I know that I
Will never be so settled down

‘Cause I sometimes hit the road
Without a second thought I go
And I lose myself to the things that I don’t know
That’s just the way it goes

[Repeat Verse 1]
[Chorus]
‘Cause I sometimes hit the road
Without a second thought I go
And I lose myself to the things that I don’t know
That’s just the way it goes

2. fly

Hey honey bee
If I write you a song
That's as sweet as your comb
Would you listen baby
Your sting is mean
But I can't leave you alone
Shake your heart with a poem
Maybe you can save me

And I want you to fly
Don't let it die
That fire inside, baby
And I want you to fly
Don't let it die that fire inside
Honey oh, fly me home
Hey little bee
You make honey to eat
They say sugar is sweet
But you're purer to me
Smile ‘til you weep
And when your days are dark
I'll bring flowers to the park
Tell you you amaze me

[Repeat Chorus]

When the winter comes again
Please don't pass as autumn ends
If you're cold come to my hands
Light a match to shake the winds

And I want you to fly
Don't let it die that fire inside, baby
And I want you to fly
Don't let it die that fire inside
Ooh ooh
Don’t let it die that fire inside
Honey oh, fly me home

3. like a jay

I am barely a man
My soft sandpaper cheek
Should help you understand
My brow is furrowed deep
The darkness of those lines
They make my mother weep
They told me this way will be better son
They told me this way is the only you one

But I am gonna fly away
‘Cause I am blue like a jay
And I don’t wanna hear you say
That you know what is better

Take these things I have away
I'll hold on to my soul
Since you took my heart from me
And break all the CDs that I made
‘Cause I have come and gone
Like the darkness and the day
They told me this way will be better son
They told me this way is the only you one

I need (need to) see the
I need (need to) see the
Need to see the world

[Repeat Chorus]

4. runaway

You move too quickly
I can’t hold on
Why do you cheat me
All the time
You had to leave me
For North Caroline
Why do you cheat me
All the time

Ahh but you’re messy and wild and lonely the way I am
Ahh but you got me then baby you packed up your car and ran
Don’t runaway too long
Don’t runaway too long

Her friends don’t know me
And she ain’t told her man
That’s better for me
And my playing hands
But my old heart ain’t healthy
Since she up and ran
What the devil dealt me
Is a poor, a poor boys’ hand

[Repeat Chorus]

And it’s bound to be a long night
On two-ninety-five
But I think I should see ya

Ahh but you’re messy and wild and lonely the way I am
Ahh but you got me then baby you packed up your car and ran
Ahh but you’re messy and wild and lonely the way I am
Ahh but you got me then baby you packed up your car and ran
Don’t runaway too long
Don’t runaway too long

5. calling your name

Do you want me yeah yeah yeah
Checked my post box and found a map
The photograph talks of how and where you
Are the plains hot in South America
Is it tough to be so far from home
I found those shots of dancing girls
The sky and the waves
The way you look is driving me crazy and
I'd be better off if you’d save me
I'm calling your name out

Do you want me yeah yeah yeah
You’re all I need yeah yeah yeah

Hands reaching out to catch the dancers
Hands without warning caught the answer
To all my pain I'm paying for the way
That I fell and didn't break my fall
One two three waltzing our eyes combined
The way that she moved has filled my memories
I still waken thinking it’s a dream
But you told me you’ve seen what I’ve seen

[Repeat Chorus]

Maybe I'm not all that I said I was
But I’m undone because of you
Maybe I'm not all that I said I was
But I’m undone because of you

[Repeat Chorus]

[Repeat Chorus]

6. evergreen

Remember in the fall way back in time
The cabin was so cold at night we’d warm ourselves with wine
September brought the frost and so we’d stay
Tangled in each others arms until the spring in May
Whoa and if you dream about me
I’m forever for you

Put your head on my pillow I'll kiss you to sleep
And lullaby weeping willow life is evergreen
And I love you even though

I passed her in a place beneath the pines
My fiddle was my flower and my heart it was a smile
She cut a picture for me to hold on
Her boyfriend in the other half he fell onto the ground
Whoa and if you dream about me
I’m forever for you

[Repeat Chorus]

7. magpie

Hello Mr. Magpie
And how’s your wife today
Will you teach me all your secrets
Before I go astray
Well I heard this rhyme about you
And your family
But this morning I see just you
I’ll tell you anyway

They say one’s for sorrow
And two’s for joy
Three’s for my baby
And four’s for this boy

Well I walk across the moor now
The sun is rising from her bed
And I see the morning magpies
As they are flying overhead
Misses magpie swoops down
Landing in a tree
She says listen to your heart now
And stop trusting all you see

[Repeat Chorus]

Magpie fly magpie fly magpie fly
Away away away away

They say one’s for sorrow
And two’s for joy
Three’s for my baby
And four’s for this boy
Five’s for silver
And six for gold
And seven’s for secrets they’re never to be told
They’re never to be told

Hello Mr. Magpie
And how’s your wife today
Will you teach me all your secrets
Before I go astray

8. hold me closer

Heart shatters so I stumble down to my knees
I clutch the gravel shadows coming for me
And I told your emotion wasn’t easy
And you told me your devotion’s starting to leave

Baby I can see you don’t need me
And don’t see that I’m bleeding (I’m bleeding)
Come on
Hold me closer

This mistake makes my chest ache slowly I bleed
The pain my lungs take you’re the heart attack I need
And I told your emotion wasn’t easy
And you told me your devotion’s starting to leave

[Repeat Chorus]

Listen this is my first step here although I’ve been around for twenty one
Try to be my fathers son spitting and singing the things
I’ve done Making a record and everything’s beautiful
Taking the highroad to see what I’m living for
Hitching a ride to catch up beside the angel that I saw walking across the
Earth tome dollar bills I’ve had my fill of killing
I grew up in the forest story telling it to the willing
I’m simple I got rhymes and rhythms vocals and guitar
Stand and deliver the poems I wrote to hit you to the heart so

[Repeat Chorus]

First step although I’ve been around for twenty one
First step although I’ve been around for
This is my first step although I’ve been around for twenty one
First step although I’ve been around for
This is my first step although I’ve been around for twenty one
First step although I’ve been around for

9. broken

Use me until I’m done
Heartbeat ain’t like a drum baby
Breakdown to smithereens
Built up your throne my queen baby

And how can you do this
How can you do this to me
I scream and I shouted
You walk by with nothing to see
You left me and I’m

Once loved but then forgot
New things to see you saw baby
My life was always fine
Until you changed your mind baby
And how can you do this
How can you do this to me
I scream and I shouted
You walk by with nothing to see
You left me broken

[Repeat Chorus]
[Repeat Chorus]

10. heart upon the floor

I’ve been waiting to find
Some piece of mind is hiding round the corner
‘Cause today I saw that smile
And I thought I’d die when she said that I could hold her

So we danced all night and when she had to go
She left me standing with my heart upon the floor

I’ve been chasing that smile
And I hope to find it on top of every mountain
Been asleep for quite a while
But I awoke when that feeling came a-pounding

So we danced all night the room faded away
As she took my hand the band began to play

I’ve been waiting to find
Some piece of mind is hiding round the corner
Yesterday I saw that smile
And I thought I’d die when she said that I could hold her

So we danced all night and when she had to go
She left me standing with my heart upon the floor
So we danced all night and when she had to go
She left me standing with my heart upon the floor

11. seventy odd years

I walk the world
I still got miles to go but
Now I know
That when I'm home
Is when you hold me close to you
I roam these hills
For seventy odd years
And I know still
That when I'm home
Is when you hold me close to you

And home is the place in between your arms
And home is the place where I belong

I’m counting birds
They're moving faster than I
I can with words
I'm looking for you
So you'll hold me so close to you
I'm traveling
And with my feet I am unraveling
The space between
So you can hold me so close to you

[Repeat Chorus]

And I'm not as young as you
And I'm not as strong
I'm just a man looking for someone who knows

That home is the place in between your arms
And home is the place where I belong
And home is the place in between your arms
And home is the place where I belong
