Tumbleweed
Koyal Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I saw you there
In a different place
A moment still
I can't erase
Moments from darkness
I stay by your side
You are my light
And I am your guide
When I'm down, you put your arms around me
When you're down, I'll do the same
You'll see, you and me
And we'll keep rolling on, rolling on
Like a tumbleweed
Honest weakness
Or hidden sorrow
It will be gone
By tomorrow
We're both stuck in this
Horrible dream
You sit in silence
While I scream
How do I help? How do I save?
Someone that I love is tethered to the pain
Do I run away, or stay with you?
Revive or survive? Oh, what can I do?
When I'm down, you put your arms around me
When you're down, I'll do the same
You'll see, you and me
And we'll keep rolling on, rolling on
Like a tumbleweed
But you go down to that evil place
To save your ego, to save some face
But don't you know that we can't be knocked down
Rely on each other for solid ground
Open your arms to the things that you love
Part the stormy clouds in the sky above
Illuminate your path with your beautiful mind
You are my light and I am your guide
When I'm down, (you put your arms around me)
When you're down, ( I'll do the same )
(You'll see) you and me




(And we'll keep) rolling on, rolling on
(Like a tumbleweed)
