Bill Callahan Lyrics


I started out in search of ordinary things
How much of a tree bends in the wind
I started telling the story without knowing the end

I used to be darker, then I got lighter, then I got dark again
Something to be seen was passing over and over me
Well it seemed like the routine case at first
With the death of the shadow came a lightness of verse
But the darkest of nights, in truth, still dazzles
And I woke myself until I'm frazzled

I ended up in search of ordinary things
Like how can a wave possibly be?
I started running, and the concrete turned to sand
I started running, and things didn't pan out as planned

In case things go poorly and I not return
Remember the good things I've done
In case things go poorly and I not return
Remember the good things I've done
Done me in

I started out in search of ordinary things
How much of a tree bends in the wind?
I started telling the story without knowing the end
I used to be darker, then I got lighter, then I got dark again
And something too big to be seen was passing over and over me
Well, it seemed like a routine case at first
With the death of the shadow came a lightness of verse
But the darkest of nights, in truth, still dazzles
And I work myself until I'm frazzled
I ended up in search of ordinary things
Like how can a wave possibly be?
I started running, and the concrete turned to sand
I started running, and things didn't pan out as planned
In case things go poorly and I not return
Remember the good things I've done
In case things go poorly and I not return
Remember the good things I've done
Oh...
Done me in

i started out in search of ordinary things
how much of a tree bends in the wind
i started telling a story without knowing the end

i used to be darker 
then i got lighter 
then i got dark again

something too big to be seen 
was passing over and over me

Paul Kelleher

Im new to BC but the song is just an absolute masterpiece as is the whole album. It was given to me as a gift from someone who thought I would like Mr. Callahan. I cant stop listening to it. Seriously high quality music. Thank you Bill.
