St. Francis - Delta Spirit

tones at the back of my home
Kicking the dirt in the air
Well I left to think while they're thinking I'm stoned
Well I had no cause to be there

And out of this town while I had something left
Bury the fear in my head
Well it's all just the same cause the city's just as bare
It's full of people like me

[Chorus:]
We've all run away
Everyone wants but nobody needs
Silver and gold
Well everyone wants, but nobody needs

[Interlude similar to verse]

Well I ran to the woods and I preached to the birds
St. Francis talking to me
Well they said I'd find love in a pain I'd endure
If I would just listen to him

With my ear to the ground and my heart full of lead
Well I quietly listened to him teach
But with tears in his eyes, he just looked straight through me
I awkwardly waited for speech

We've all run away
Everyone wants but nobody needs
Silver and gold
Everyone wants, but nobody needs

[Interlude w/ changed piano part]

Once I was sure that this love was the truth
Well I quickly spit in his face
I returned to my home, friends and I, we threw stones
Bragging that we knew the way

[hummed chorus 1x until the end]
