Indigo Girls Soon Be To Nothing Lyrics

Last updated: 09/28/2006 11:00:00 AM

Words and Music: Emily Saliers

Kelly Mountain Road saw a heavy load
With a sagging heart and a break apart
Voices in me stood as thick as thieves
With no sympathy for the beggar's art
I have passed these pines bout a million times
Effortlessly
Now I grip the wheel fear is what I feel
At the slow unraveling of me

(Chorus):
You tell me it's temporary it's a matter of time
By God don't you think I know it's in my mind
It's right over left healing the then
I'll soon be to nothing but I don't know when

Well the way I flee on my crooked feet
Barn happy horse on a one-track course
The I self-despise cryin' out my eyes
Cause the happy trail led me to remorse
But the road is long and my song is gone
I blow empty in my cicada shell
If I saw my choice I might find my voice
But I don't know when and I just can't tell

(Chorus)

Deep behind my face is a safer place
But old gears are hitched tight to the gate
It's a daily grind waiting to unwind
Till I hear that click that unlocks my fate
