Gemini
Alabama Shakes Lyrics


On a planet not so far away
We were born together
In the beginning there was just you and me
Where we was washed up, upon this ferry
Suckled on the honey of the Tenessee
Where we would sleep, in the soft sunshine
I smile at you and you to me

And in the dark, I see the moon
Shine in your eyes
We grew strong and tall as weeds
Never live forever, there were no such thing
I looked at you, and you looked into me
And we saw in each other, everything
We knew no fear as we grew the years
That's the growing up, we've come to love

On this planet not so far away
We wouldn't stay together
Rolling in a dream
We'd drift apart, on down the stream
Like honeysuckle tangled up in kudzu vine
The snake that lay in the Sun, so fine
I saw true you, and you, true me

And in your eyes, I'd see the dark
Inside of you
Walk from dream, pulled up like weed
Never knew no better, there was no such thing
I reached for you like a child that cling
Oh we saw in each other, everything
Everything
Everything

Lucas Chalegre

this song man, damn, all I can say is that it reminds me of moments that never were and will never be, so so so powerful, every night I listen to this masterpiece thinking about my choices, and choosing, over and over again, to fall in love with this

sbenton8

Lucas Chalegre yeah ✨❤️✨

Scotty Downs

Unbelievable... Honestly, I thought this kind of music was dead. When I first heard Alabama Shakes I figured it was just another come and go alternative band with songs like hold on and Don't wanna fight. But as SOON as I heard this album I was speechless. They incorporate greats like Floyd, zeppelin and with a blues voice I can't even compare. They will be considered classic in the near future, mark my words.

J B

You are 100% correct. You thought GOOD music was DEAD. But is "holding on" in Brittany Howard and the Shakes. Too bad most people consume Plastic garbage music.
Support this artist and those like her or it will surely die. Pressure your local radio and don't support crap.

Arvia Johnson

Yea n evidently I few years later here 🤷

La Cueva Del Ritmo

you goddamn right

Eliana Nunez

+Scotty Downs I couldn't agree with you more! Glad to know that I am not the only one who appreciates the authenticity and originality of this band! Future classics, indeed.
