Flicker

Flicker

Widespread Panic

Rise rise, fly above your head
Cups are running over, voices out of breath
Time time time, time has come again
Part another red-eye sea
Talking it to death

Just because you mean it
Doesn't mean we've seen it

Call call call, ringing through the night
When we finally answer, will they get it right
Run run, run it up the pole
Hard to say you hate 'em
Just doing what they're told

Just because you feel it
Doesn't mean its real
Not it's clear the air in here
Is dragging down the shine
As it grows thicker

Others say the magic's gone away
Look closer maybe you might see
The flicker

Talk talk talk, wagging of your tongue
Wishin' it was over, doesn't make it done
Cry baby cry, smash up all the chairs
Just because we're laughing, doesn't mean that we don't care

Just because you feel it
Doesn't mean we feel it
Now it's clear the air in here
Is dragging down the shine
As it grows thicker

Others say the magic's gone away
Look closer baby you will see
The flicker

The olden ways have had their day
The shine escapes the shadows
Moving quicker

Now it's clear the air in here
Shining from the light
Of a thousand flickers

Bye bye bye, thought you lost a friend
Maybe found the love you seek
Leaving in the end
