Appalachian Springs
The Verve Lyrics


Does anybody know where we're really gonna go?
I was wondering if we've got that real soul
You know the thing you cannot trade or ever own

Does anybody know where we're really gonna go?
I was wondering if we've got that real soul
You know the thing we cannot trade or ever own

The solitude, my sacred mood
The sacred mood
Appalachian Springs
All my things

Took a step to the left
Took a step to the right
I saw myself and I wasn't quite right

Does anybody know where we're really gonna go?
I was looking for answers in a soul
In the feelings that a man can't control
I let the fire burn bright in the dead of night
Disappointed she'd get I told a lie
I said that I would never be on their side

I took a step to the left
Took a step to the right
And I saw myself and it wasn't quite right
Took a step to the left
I took a step to the right
I keep it together, yeah?

And I was waiting for my number come
Like a bingo calling, singing in the sun
You said 'our number's 69', I said 'ok'

The solitude
My sacred mood
Appalachian Springs
All my things

Took a step to the left
Took a step to the right
Yeah, I keep it together
You know I'm not lying
Took a step to the left, yeah
I took a step to the right
I'm gonna keep it together

C'mon
Yeah c'mon
Ah c'mon

Does anybody know where we're really gonna go?
I was wondering if we've got that real soul
You know the thing you cannot trade or ever own
Or ever own
Or ever own
Or ever own
Or ever own
Or ever own
Or ever own
Or ever own
Or ever own
Or ever own

Good luck, I'm coming home
Feel so young
I don't know where I've gone

I took a step to the left
I took a step to the right
And I saw myself and it wasn't quite right
Yeah, a slip into the dreams
Slippin' out, slippin' in and out of dreams

A masterpiece... a song so profound comes along very rarely. This is a gem and richard ashcroft is talent personified.

You know the verve are a band there is more than just Richard?

christine constantinou

My absolute favourite song of all time . How could this not be recognised as the greatest song ever written . Thank you for creating this beautiful song that touches my soul .

Sunbaked Perhaps

Ulquiorra Cifer no idea what you said, however I hope it was good stuff.

Winston Guitar

There's no one playing this kind of music - not just jam-music, but music that crescendos and really goes someplace, builds into something grand and life-changing. There's a couple instrumental bands like Explosions In The Sky and the little-known The Engineers, but decades later, The Verve still can claim this territory as their own.

Liam George

For sure the verve are probably one of the most underrated bands ever. Nothing sounds quite like them

Listening with good quality headphones, you can sort of detect a gradual crescendo starting at the beginning of the song and culminating near the end.  Lots of layering and harmony are added gradually.  Fantastic song, and as always from the Verve, thoughtful lyrics.  One of my three favorite bands of all time.

Danny

@pbr6430 Agreed, if I could ask, what's your remaining two favourite bands?

Jesús Flores Ibarra

Great!

Sometimes, a song will stop you in your tracks and all you can say is WOW!...this is one of such songs.
