just a little green


Load the car and write the note
Grab your bag and grab your coat
Tell the ones that need to know
We are headed north
One foot in and one foot back
But it don't pay, to live like that
So I cut the ties and I jumped the tracks
For never to return
Ah Brooklyn Brooklyn take me in
Are you aware the shape I'm in
My hands they shake my head it spins
Ah Brooklyn Brooklyn take me in
When at first I learned to speak
I used all my words to fight
With him and her and you and me
Oh but it's just a waste of time
Yeah it's such a waste of time
That woman she's got eyes that shine
Like a pair of stolen polished dimes
She asked to dance, I said it's fine
I'll see you in the morning time
Three words that became hard to say
I and love and you
What you were then, I am today
Look at the things I do
Dumbed down and numbed by time and age
Your dreams to catch the world, the cage
The highway sets the travelers' stage
All exits look the same
Three words that became hard to say
I and love and you
I and love and you
I and love and you

I LOVE THIS SONG, for some reason the avett brothers really resonate with my this year
