The Understanding Lyrics

The Understanding

WORDS AND MUSIC BY JONES STREET STATION
 
Climb up the twisted root
Reach for forbidden fruit
Split it apart in two
Learn what the angels knew

Wear down the prison guard
Slip through the rusty bars
Cast the chains from your arms
Speed away in a stolen car

CHORUS
Turn to a stranger
Take his hand
Maybe then you'll understand

Survive on tea and toast
Shake your fist at an angry ghost
Take the bus to the coast
Curse the ones you love most

Tie a knot around your arm
Cradle your bad luck charm
Beg it to bring you calm
Fade away with your face in your palms

Turn to a stranger
Take her hand
Maybe then you'll understand

Where are my friends who are lost and alone?
May they find their way back home.


Stare out the cold window
Close your eyes as the shadows grow
Maybe they'll leave you alone
But that's not how this story goes

Meet in a snowy field
Lower my sword and shield
Your wounds they will never heal
There's nothing left for you to steal

Turn to a stranger
Take their hand
Maybe then you'll understand

Where are my friends who are lost and alone?

May they find their way back home
