My Morning Jacket Wordless Chorus

So much goin’ on these days

Forget about instinct, it’s not what pays

Pleasure, up and down my smile

A carton of eggs think, it’s all worthwhile

Tell me spirit, what has not been done?

I’ll rush out and do it, or are we doin’ it now?

Fissure is the thrill of day

Forget about feeling, that’s not what pays

But you know, all of this can change

Remember the promise as a kid you made

We are the innovators

They are the imitators

Come on, hey don’t you know how we started

We forgot about love, but weren’t brokenhearted

My Morning Jacket Big Decisions

Sit’n round wondering just what the hell to do with your life

Only get one chance but you seem to always think twice

And I’m getting so tired of trying to always be nice

You’re sweet and sincere, but so ruled by fear

What do you want me to do?

Make all the big decisions for you?

Cause I can’t

Well I can’t

I don’t quite feel like faking it again tonight

Don’t really feel like saying everything is alright

You’re sweet and sincere, but so ruled by fear

What do you want me to do?

Make all the big decisions for you?

What do you want me to do?

Make all the big decisions for you?

Well I can’t

Well I can’t

Go on do it

If you really, really mean it

Oh don’t just hold back then regret it

You’re sweet and sincere, but so ruled by fear

What do you want me to do?

Make all the big decisions for you?

What do you want me to do?

Make all the big decisions for you?

Well I can’t

Well I can’t

My Morning Jacket One Big Holiday

Wakin’ up feelin’ good and limber

When the telephone it ring

Was a bad man from California

Tellin’ of a stone he’d bring

And of better days

From this town, we’d escape

If we holler loud and make our way

We’d all live one big holiday

So we listened and up the river

And recorded all the sounds

Was some shakin’ and some record playin’

All the leather kids were loud

My Morning Jacket Gideon

Gideon, what have you told us at all?

Make a sound, come down off the wall

Religion should appeal to the hearts of the young

Who are you? What have you become?

Animal, come on, what does this remind you of?

Truly, truly we have become

Hated and feared for something we don’t want

Listen, listen

Most of us believe that this is wrong

Animal, come on, what does this remind you of?

What does this remind you of? Animal, come on

My Morning Jacket Rollin’ Back

Just in the nick of time you got me while I was sittin’ here

Time, I don’t think I waste it, it just seems to disappear

Sippin’ the wine you got me while eyes were rollin’ back

Long hours and hard hard things just bring heart attacks

Oh, oh, oh, you had me, wrapped up in your mystery

When the light vanished from on high

Oh I’ll never say I knew you, but my heart can’t wait

To meet you on the other side

When I think about the story one thing seems pretty clear

The warm things you left behind they still want you here

But only in time you find that all things come back around

And just like the frown, we’ll turn them upside down

Oh, oh, oh, you had me, wrapped up in your mystery

When the light vanished from on high

Oh, I’ll never say I knew you, but my heart can’t wait

To meet you on the other side

My Morning Jacket X-Mas Curtain

Hey

The Christmas curtain falls on lawbreakers who pave the way

For thoughtless folks like me and J. who’d pay

But can’t afford the finer things in life

So we heist them all

We’re criminals that never break the law

So

To all you frowns, go down to town square and get some action

From the Christmas girl that lives inside your womb

She’s always there, I think that I’m certain

You pay to get behind her Christmas curtain

You’re the criminal that never breaks the law

My Morning Jacket Aluminum Park

You can care if you wanna

You can care if you don’t

But c’mon it’s a big big world now

You gotta get what you want

Got no lack of frustration

Got no lack of disease

But c’mon it’s a big, big world now

You gotta like what you see, and I do

Well you can ride, ride, ride on down to the aluminum park

Well you can ride, ride, ride on down with your head in the dark

Well, it’s a little bit important to me, you get a whole lot of what you need

So you can ride, ride, ride on down to the aluminum park

Ride!

You can care if you wanna

You can care if you don’t

But c’mon it’s a big big world now

You’ve gotta get what you want

Got no lack of frustration

Got no lack of disease

C’mon it’s a big, big world now

You gotta like what you see, and I do

Well you can ride, ride, ride on down to the aluminum park

Well you can ride, ride, ride on down with your head in the dark

Oh, it’s a little bit important to me, you get a whole lot of what you need

So you can ride, ride, ride on down to the aluminum park

Yeah, you can ride, ride, ride on down to the aluminum park

Well, you can ride on down, hey

Ride!

My Morning Jacket Two Halves

Remember when you were seventeen

You’s goin’ crazy, you know what I mean

It wasn’t that long ago

In the grand scheme of things

It wasn’t that long ago

You think you’re so much smarter now

Twenty one everything stays in place

Forty one some things start to fade

Well, when you’re so young (so young), you wanna be older (so young)

And when you’re older, you want the body you have now

I believe in a perfect world

You rule your own universe

The only gun you’ll ever need will be in your brain

The only gun you’ll need is in your hands

You want this now you want that

Can’t have it all you should enjoy what you have

But I know what you want (what you want)

Well I know what you want (what you want)

Well I know what you want, you want the better of two halves

Well I know what you want (what you want)

Well I know what you want (what you want)

Well I know what you want, you want the better of two halves

My Morning Jacket Hopefully

I won’t ask you where you’re goin’

I won’t ask you where you been

I know after a million times, you get sick of all my lines

But I just wanna see you safe again

I know that just now I ain’t been showin’

The kind of love you know that I can

So gimme a little time and you’ll be knowin’

Your good lovin’ baby is back on top again

Hopefully it occurs to me that there’s one thing that I can’t stand

That’s the thought of a single day, without your head in my hand

I always hoped you’d be showin’

And now you’ve shown as much as you can

But after each time, I’m still glowin’

With a good lovin’ smile that’s yours until’ the end

Hopefully it occurs to me that there’s one thing that I can’t stand

That’s the thought of a single day, without your head in my hand

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
