In the Words of the Governor
by Sufjan Stevens

yeah girl you think you've got it coming back to you
but in the words
of the governor
I found the strength

its too much strength
its too much strength
I hold in back in me
but when I put on my back shoes
I can not strengthen these
its too much strength
its too much strength
I put it back in you

but i was holding it to


and tell me straight
tell me straight
do you think I care

you got it coming back to even
if I tell you what
I told you straight

I put it under the table
I put it under the bed

yeah girl you think you got it coming back to you
but in the words of the governor
I never said its true
its too much strength
its too much strength
I hold it back to me

i'll hold you to it even if you want to pressure me

I'll tell you staight
I'll tell you staight
do you think I care

I put it down

the paper

its in my strength
its in my strength
and in my strength I know


I put my face up
put my face up

I said I was going

its too much strength
its too much strength


in the words of the governor I said I want you to put it back
sheriff
I said
I can't fight anymore
well he said
put it out
put on your shirt and put on your shirt
we are going to go outside
were going to...
put it back
put it back

its in my strength
its in my strength
its inside of me

I put it back
I put it back
I put it back
in me

its too much strength
its too much strength
inside of me
I put it back
I put it back
I put it back
I put it back
I put it back
I put it back
I put it back
I put it back
its too much strength

its too much strength
its too much strength
its too much strength
its too much strength
its too much strength in me
its too much strength
don't fight with me
