The Fundamental Things

The Fundamental Things

Bonnie Raitt

Let's run baby through these city streets
We're all victims of captivity
Let's stop the madness without any tricks
I'll whisper bible quotes and you can read my lips

Let's get back to the fundamental things
Let's get back to the elements of style
Let's get back to where it all began
Let's get back to the fundamental things

Let's dance barefoot over broken glass
Slither like a snake does through the wet cold grass
Howl and tremble in a sleepless grind
Let's do the brain drain and leave it all behind

Let's get back to the fundamental things
Let's get back to the elements of style
Let's get back to where it all began
Let's get back to the fundamental things

You can sit in your room and worry
You can contemplate the end
Or let your house burn down behind you
Run with me through the streets again

Let's get back, I wanna go back
Let's get back, let's get back

Let's get back to the fundamental things
Let's get back to the elements of style
Let's get back to where it all began
Let's get back to the fundamental things

You can hide out on your rooftop
Wishing you had never been
Or go down to Hal's Bar and Grill
And find your innocence again

Let's get back, let's get back
Let's get back, I wanna go back
I've got to go back
