My Morning Jacket Lowdown

Lowdown, cheatin’, ain’t no need for repeatin’

So love, dawn, can’t you see?

That you never gotta fight with me

No you never gotta fight with me

Hurtin’, beatin’ ain’t no need for repeatin’

So love dawn can’t you see

That you never gotta bleed for me

Chancing, glancing, so enough mood for romancing

So love dawn can’t you see

That you only gotta dance with me

Yeah you only gotta dance with me

Yeah you only gotta dance with me

Yeah you only gotta dance with me

My Morning Jacket Anytime

Is this, climbin’ up to the moon?

Or is it bailin’ out too soon?

I hope we didn’t, I hope we didn’t wait too long

I hope we didn’t, I hope we didn’t wait too long

All that I wanted to say

Words only got in the way

But then I found another way to communicate

Oh, yeah, oh

Is this, climbin’ up to the moon?

Or is it fadin’ out too soon?

Oh I know we didn’t, I know we didn’t wait too long

‘Cause anytime’s a good time to move on

Things I could say to myself

I could never say to anyone else

But what Madonna said, really helped

She said, “Boy, you better learn to express yourself”

I know we didn’t, I know we didn’t wait too long

‘Cause anytime’s a good time to move on

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh oh, oh oh

My Morning Jacket If It Smashes Down

Who’s going to care

If it smashes down

Or flips you up in the air?

It’s just a really fast

Risky ride at a fair

On these lovely trips

The conductor likes

Your soft brown eyes on his hair

No need to shut ‘er down

Go round and round

In the air

Who’s going to care

If it smashes down

Or flips you up in the air?

It’s just a really fast

Risky ride at a fair

On these lovely trips

The conductor likes

Your soft brown eyes on his hair

No need to shut ‘er down

Go round and round

In the air

In the air

In the air

In the air

My Morning Jacket Dondante

In a dream, I saw you walkin’

Like a kid alive and talkin’, that was you

In the classroom, you were teachin’

On the streets you were policin’ that was you

To the one I now know most

I will tell them of your ghost like a thing that never, ever was

And all that ever mattered

Will some day turn back to batter like a joke

Behind thin walls, you hid your feelings

Takes four legs to make a ceilin’ like a thing

In a dream I saw you walkin’

With your friends alive and talkin’, that was you

Well I saw it in your movements

And even though you never knew it, well I knew

Just how sweet it could be

If you’d never left these streets

You had me worried, so worried that this would last

You had me worried, so worried that this would last

But now I’m learning, learning that this will pass

But now I’m learning, learning that this will pass

My Morning Jacket Weeks Go By Like Days

Forever, that’s how long it would take

Forever, not as long as a day

Long is the road I have always been told

How long can one boy wait?

Long is the road I have always been told

How long can one man wait?

Forever

Forever

Forever

Forever, that’s how long I would wait

Forever, not as long as a day

Long is the road I have always been told

How lonely can one boy be?

Long is the road I have always been told

How long can one man wait?

Forever

Forever

Forever

My Morning Jacket The Bear

It’s a bad idea to go down to the pier by yourself after dark

Bad idea ’cause they’re down on their luck

And they’ve lost touch with their bleeding hearts

Bad idea ’cause I’ve felt that way and I know I shouldn’t have gone

The time is near to come forward with whatever killed your spark

There’s still time for you to change your mind

Or whatever else you do, there’s still time, oh oh

It’s a bad idea to go down to the pier by yourself after dark

Bad idea ’cause they’re down on their luck

And they’ve lost touch with their bleeding hearts

Bad idea ’cause I’ve felt that way and I know I shouldn’t have gone

The time is near to come forward with whatever killed your spark

There’s still time for you to change your mind

Or whatever else you do, there’s still time, oh oh

Oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh

My Morning Jacket In Its Infancy

Again [x10]

The idea was always there, in it’s infancy

The seed took root, over many years

An idea grows before it walks

And as it walks, it learns to run

And as it runs, it feels it’s form

The waterfall, can it be stopped?

Again [x12]

[Chorus x2:]

Again I stop the waterfall by simply thinking

Again I stop the waterfall before my breathing

Again I stop the waterfall by finally feeling

Again I stop the waterfall by just believing

Again [x11]

The idea was always there, in it’s infancy

The seed took root, over many years
