More Indigo Girls Lyrics [ Hammer And A Nail ]

Clearing webs from a hovel
A blistered hand on the handle of a shovel
I’ve been digging too deep, I always do

I see my face on the surface
I look a lot like narcissis
A dark abyss of a emptiness
standing on the edge of a drowning blue

I look behind my ears for the green
and even my sweat smells clean
the glare off the white hurt my eyes

I’ve got to get out of bed,
Get a hammer and a nail
Learn how to use my hands
Not just my head,
I think myself in a jail
But now i know a refuge never grows
From a chin in a hand in a thoughtful pose
Gotta tend the earth if you want a rose

Had a lot of good intentions
Sit around for fifty years and then collect the pensions
I’ve seen the road to hell
and just where it starts

But my life is more than a vision
the sweetest part is acting after making a decision
start seeing the whole as the sum of its parts

My life is part of the global life
I found myself becoming more immobile
when I think a little girl in the world can’t do anything

A distant nation my community,
A street person my responsability
If I have a care in the world I have a gift to bring

Many of our artists may not last.. but people will be listening to the Indigo Girls 500 years from now, if we still have the technology to play back what has been recorded.
