We Can Run, But We Can't Hide Lyrics

in Built To Last Album

Learn to play "We Can Run" with online video lessons

We don't own this place, though we act as if we did,
It's a loan from the children of our children's kids.
The actual owners haven't even been born yet.

But we never tend the garden and rarely we pay the rent,
Some of it is broken and the rest of it is bent
Put it all on plastic and I wonder where we'll be when the bills hit.

We can run,
But we can't hide from it.
Of all possible worlds,
We only got one:
We gotta to ride on it.
Whatever we've done,
We'll never get far from what we leave behind,
Baby, we can run, run, run, but we can't hide.
Oh no, we can't hide.

I'm dumpin' my trash in your back yard
Makin' certain you don't notice really isn't so hard
You're so busy with your guns and all of your excuses to use them.

Well, it's oil for the rich and babies for the poor,
We got everyone believin' that more is more,
If a reckoning comes, maybe we will know what to do then.

All these complications seem to leave no choice,
I heard the tongues of billions speak with just one voice,
Saying, "Just leave all the rest to me,
I need it worse than you, you see."
And then I heard...
The sound of one child crying.

Today I went walking in the amber wind,
There's a hole in the sky where the light pours in
I remembered the days when I wasn't afraid of the sunshine.

But now it beats down on the asphalt land
Like a hammering blow from God's left hand
What little still grows cringes in the shade like a bad vine.

I Will Take You Home (Little Girl Lost) Lyrics

I Will Take You Home (Little Girl Lost) Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Little girl lost In a forest of dreams. It's a dark old wood And it's damp with dew. Hoot owl hoots For a moment it seems Something big and cold Just got ahold of you. Just when everything gets scary, Daddy's come 'round for his darlin' again. Hold my hand with your little fingers. Daddy's loving arms gonna gather you in. Ain't no way the Bogeyman can get you, You can close your eyes, the world is gonna let you, Your daddy's here and never will forget you, I will take you home. I will take you home. Gonna carry you back home In my arms. I will...

Built To Last Lyrics

Built To Last Lyrics | Grateful Dead

There are times that you can beckon There are times when you must call You can shake a ton of reckoning But you can't shake it all There are times when I can help you out And times that you must fall There are times when you must live in doubt And I can't help at all Three blue stars / Rise on the hill Say no more, now / Just be still All these trials / Soon be past Look for something / Built to last Wind held by the collar Got a cloud held by the breeze You can walk on coals of fire But sometimes you must freeze There are times when you...

Picasso Moon Lyrics

Picasso Moon Lyrics | Grateful Dead

South of Market in the land of ruin You get all manner of action Tinsel tigers in The Metal Room Stalking satisfaction. They got 'em packaged up for love and money Tattooed tots and chrome spike bunnies Check my conscience at the DMZ And roll on in, gonna roll in it, honey But I get a feelin like when big things collide Like the crack before the thunder, like I really ought to hide And here comes Metal Angel, she looks ready to ride; & What's that she's tryin' to show me..? What's that you're tryin' to show me..? [Chorus:] Picasso Moon,...

Blow Away Lyrics

Blow Away Lyrics | Grateful Dead

A man and a woman come together as strangers When they part they're usually strangers still It's like a practical joke played on us by our Maker Empty bottles that can't be filled [Chorus] Baby who's to say it could have been different now that it's done Baby who's to say that it should have been, anyway Baby who's to say that it even matters in the long run Give it just a minute And it will blow away It'll blow away You fancy me to be the master of your feelings You barely bruise me with your looks to kill Though I admit we were sometimes...

Standing On The Moon Lyrics

Standing On The Moon Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Standing on the moon I got no cobweb on my shoe Standing on the moon I'm feeling so alone and blue I see the Gulf of Mexico As tiny as a tear The coast of California Must be somewhere over here - over here Standing on the moon I see the battle rage below Standing on the moon I see the soldiers come and go There's a metal flag beside me Someone planted long ago Old Glory standing stiffly Crimson, white and indigo - indigo I see all of Southeast Asia I can see El Salvador I hear the cries of children And the other songs of war It's like a mighty...

Just A Little Light Lyrics

Just A Little Light Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Well, there ain't nobody safer than someone who doesn't care And it isn't even lonely when no one's ever there I had a lot of dreams once, but some of them came true... The honey's sometimes bitter when fortune falls on you So you know I've been a soldier in the armies of the night And I'll find the fatal error in what's otherwise alright But here you're trembling like a sparrow, I will try with all my might To give you just a little sweetness... Just a little sweetness... Just a little light. I have always heard that virtue oughta be its own...

Foolish Heart Lyrics

Foolish Heart Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Carve your name Carve your name in ice and wind Search for where Search for where the rivers end Or where the rivers start Do everything that's in you That you feel to be your part But never give your love, my friend, Unto a foolish heart Leap from ledges Leap from ledges high and wild Learn to speak Speak with wisdom like a child Directly from the heart Crown yourself the king of clowns Or stand way back apart But never give your love, my friend Unto a foolish heart Shun a friend Shun a brother and a friend Never look Never look around the...
