stand up straight


 Round Here-Counting Crows

  Every time I hear this song I think about manic depression...

    found here something radiates
      Maf Round Here hand

Performed By: Counting Crows
  She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
Words by: Adam Duritz
Music by: Dave Janusko, Dan Jewett, Chris Roldan & Dave Bryson

        step out the front door like a ghost
        into the fog where no one notices
        the contrast of white on white.

        and in between the moon and you
        the angels get a better view
        of the crumbling difference between wrong and right.

        I walk in the air between the rain.
        though myself and back again.
        where?    I don't know

        Maria says she's dying.
        though the door i hear her crying
        why?      I don't know

        round here we always stand up straight
        round here something radiates

        Maria came from nashville with a suitcase in her hand
        she said she'd like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis
        She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
        just like she's walking on a wire in the circus
        she parks her car outside my house
        takes her clothes off.
        Says she's close to understanding Jesus
        she knows she's more than just a little misunderstood
        she has trouble acting normal when she's is nervous

        round here we're carving out our names
        round here we all look the same
        round here we talk just like lions
        but we sacrifice like lambs
        round here she's slipping though my hands

        sleeping children got to run like the wind
        out of the lighting dream
        mama's little baby get herself in
        out of the lighting

        she says, "It's only in my head."
        She says, "Shhhhh.......I Know it;s only in my head."

        but the girl on the car in the parking lot
        says: "Man, you should try to a shot
        Can't you see my walls are crumbling?

        Then she looks up at the building
        and says she's thinking of jumping
        she says she's tired of life
        she must be tired of something

        round here she's always on my mind
        round here (hey man) I gots lots of time
        round here we're never sent to bed early
        nobody makes us wait
        round here we stay up Very very Very Very Very Late

        I cant see nothing nothing round here
        You catch me if I'm falling, you catch if falling
        You Catch me, cause I am falling down on you

        I said I am under the car, round here
        Ah man, I said I am under the gun, round here
