Tumbleweed
Belli Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Been awake for days
Just scratching around
A red river, and UV shakes
Becoming part of this place
I'm on lost on you
This open road
A lonely river I can't take
Breeds new lines down my face
Like a Tumbleweed
Like a Tumbleweed
Head set ablaze
Hell-bent on top
Sends me shivers this disgrace
I'm half cut for the sake
Fading in and out
A morning view
Dangers rise when daylight break
The suns a lonely friend
To my wake
I'm on lost on you this
This open road
A lonely river I can't take
Breeds new life down my face
Like a Tumbleweed
Like a Tumbleweed




Like a Tumbleweed
Like a Tumbleweed
