Lungs
Townes Van Zandt Lyrics


Won't you lend your lungs to me?
Mine are collapsing
Plant my feet and bitterly
Breathe up the time that's passing.
Breath I'll take and breath I'll give
Pray the day's not poison
Stand among the ones that live
In lonely indecision.

Fingers walk the darkness down
Mind is on the midnight
Gather up the gold you've found
You fool, it's only moonlight.
And if you stop to take it home
Your hands will turn to butter
Better leave this dream alone
Try to find another.

Salvation sat and crossed herself
And called the devil partner
Wisdom burned upon a shelf
Who'll kill the raging cancer
Seal the river at its mouth
Take the water prisoner
Fill the sky with screams and cries
Bathe in fiery answers

Jesus was an only son
And love his only concept
But strangers cry in foreign tongues
And dirty up the doorstep
And I for one, and you for two
Ain't got the time for outside
Keep your injured looks to you
We'll tell the world that we tried

Then They Came For Me

Well, won't you lend your lungs to me?
Mine are collapsing
Plant my feet and bitterly breathe
Up the time that's passing.
Breath I'll take and breath I'll give
Pray the day ain't poison
Stand among the ones that live
In lonely indecision.

Fingers walk the darkness down
Mind is on the midnight
Gather up the gold you've found
You fool, it's only moonlight.
If you try to take it home
Your hands will turn to butter
You better leave this dream alone
Try to find another.

Salvation sat and crossed herself
Called the devil partner
Wisdom burned upon a shelf
Who'll kill the raging cancer
Seal the river at its mouth
Take the water prisoner
Fill the sky with screams and cries
Bathe in fiery answers

Jesus was an only son
And love his only concept
Strangers cry in foreign tongues
And dirty up the doorstep
And I for one, and you for two
Ai'nt got the time for outside
Just keep your injured looks to you
We'll tell the world we tried

And I for one, and you for two
Ain't got the time for outside
Keep your injured looks to you

Townes van Zandt - Lungs:

Won't you lend your lungs to me
mine are collapsing.
Plant my feet and bitterly breathe up
the time that's passing
Breath I'll take and breath I'll give
Pray the day is not poison
Stand among the one's that live in lonely indecision

Fingers walk the darkness down
Mind is on the midnight
Gather up the gold you found
you fool, it's only moonlight
And if you start to take it home
your hands'll turn to butter
Better leave this dream alone
try to find another

Salvation sat and crossed herself
and called the devil partner
Wisdom burned upon a shelf
who'll kill the raging cancer
Seal the river at it's mouth
take the water prisoner
Fill the sky with screams and cries
bathe in fiery answers

Jesus was an only son
and love his only concept
But strangers cry in foreign tongues
and dirty up the doorstep

And I for one
and you for two
Ain't got the time for outside
Keep your injured looks to you
we'll tell the world that we tried

Not only that true detective gave me 10 hours of emotions and entertainment, no they also introduced me to obviously one of the most talented musicians ever.

Peter Valencia

Best song writer of all time. Feel bad for those that don't know him , missing out big time.

Matthew Shaver

This song from this man will give you more that that show will ever give you. Listen clearly and listen wisely.

Scott Leech

Mate, I cannot agree more.! Same with The Blacklist, Justified and Suits. Whomever was responsible for the soundtracks in those shows did such an awesome job. I've been introduced to SO many great bands purely on the back of watching those shows.! 😁

Reece Jaxen

Ashton Quincy
