Broken Arrow Lyrics - The Band

Review The Song (2)



G D
Who else is gonna bring you
Em C
A broken arrow
G D
Who else is gonna bring you
Em C
A bottle of rain
G Em F C
There he goes, moving across the water
G Em F C
There he goes turning my whole
G
world around

G
Do you feel what I feel
sponsored links
D G Em
Can we make that so it's part of the deal
C /d G /f#
I gotta hold you in these arms of steel
Em D D7
Lay your heart on the line ... this time


I wanna breathe when you breathe
When you whisper like that hot
summer breeze
Count the beads of sweat that cover me
Didn't you show me a sign, this time

Who else is gonna bring you
A broken arrow
Who else is gonna bring you
A bottle of rain
There he goes, moving across the water
There he goes turning my whole
world around

Can you see what I see
Can you cut behind the mystery
I will meet you by the witness tree
Leave the whole world behind

I want to come when you call
I'll get to you if I have to crawl
They can't hold me with these iron walls
We've got mountains to climb

Who else is gonna bring you
A broken arrow
Who else is gonna bring you
A bottle of rain
There he goes, moving across the water
There he goes turning my whole
world around

@Cliff: Meaning of Broken Arrow | Reviewer: Joshua | 11/4/11

It's a poetic image, subject to interpretation, of course. I think it means that he is offering his lover his past failed good efforts ("broken arrow") and memories ("bottle of rain") -- an openness or intimacy that he alone offers.



What the hell is meant by "broken Arrow?" | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/9/10

Love the song, but I'm lost on the meaning of broken arrow in relation to the rest of the song. Would you help me. I wrote lyrics in the 70,s when I lived in NYC for a guitarist named Dean Foster, just a couple which is was good enough to put to music and sing it at Carnegie Hall.

Thanks
