Raise The Roof

Raise The Roof

Carbon Leaf

Raise the roof, that I might see the stars
To gain wisdom, to see things for what they are
Please, I need proof

Dance till you fall
Love till you die
Shut your mouth
Raise the roof

Trapped in the snare with too much dreaming to bear
Fearful and frantic, hopeless and a romantic
Inspired but tired, I run this wide-open course
Like the sagging spirit of an older horse

Dance till you fall
Love till you die
Shut your mouth
Raise the roof

Dance till you fall
Love till you die
Shut your mouth
Raise the roof

Peel back this backdrop, like the lids from my eyes
Put you in plain view, let me visualize
Touch me again in my dreams till I feel
Touch me again till I wake and it's real

Dance till you fall
Love till you die
Shut your mouth
Raise the roof

Dance till you fall
Love till you die
Shut your mouth
Raise the roof

The wisest advice to me that I didn't reach
Was to lock up the heart, but keep the key within reach
Touch me again in my dreams till I feel
Touch me again till I wake and it's real

Dance till you fall
Love till you die
Shut your mouth
Raise the roof

Dance till you fall
Love till you die
Shut your mouth
Raise the roof

Dance till you fall
Love till you die
Shut your mouth
Raise the roof

Dance till you fall
Love till you die
Raise the roof

Dance till you fall
Love till you die
Raise the roof
