Susan Kane: Listen

Around the Bend

(Susan Kane)

They say what you don’t know can’t hurt you

Like ignorance is some kind of virtue

Heaven help the soul of a sharp-tongued woman

Those who speak the truth have a hard time coming

Walking the edge of the slippery slope

Change is hard don’t give up hope

 

Chorus

You start at the beginning

And see it to the end

It’s right around the corner

It’s right around the bend

 

Forget about the jackpot and what you want to spend

Ashes ashes in the end

Ain’t no use to trouble or complain

Might as well smile in the pouring rain

The only way to come back is to go

Whether your wheel turns fast or slow

 

Chorus

 

What’s it gonna take to get your backs up people?    

When you gonna stop being so damn feeble              

Never forget that people have the power

Short is the day and late is the hour

Who’s to say when the time is right?

Rosy fingered dawn takes back the night

 

Chorus
