Nathaniel Rateliff How To Win

Wait.

We’re going to win

It’s about time we did

And I can’t decide at all if we’re good

And sure, I’ve been

You got a face that’s hard to forget.

Aw,

I’m gonna get back to you

And oh, I know

It’s hard to notice every small movement and slipping through the cracks.

And, well, it’s what no one ever sees,

but it’s got hard-working knees.

Well, calm me down.

I gets so rough.

I’m wallowing for months at a time.

I got no presence.

Here, I’ve got warm loneliness.

The heart just won’t quit.

Nathaniel Rateliff We Neve Win

He’s a manic boy

Looks a lot like me

Looks a lot like me

And he shares the blame

With a younger face

It’s hard and rushed to see

And it’s hard for us to see

But I can tell

Is it cold enough

Does it chatter your teeth

And the wind won’t set you free

And it never has

Like an old time revival

Shake your hands, and shake your hips

Put up all my armour

Let me stand bear, with just two fists

Nathaniel Rateliff Longing And Losing

I must be our ruin

I must dead iron

Don’t short-sight it’s worth

It comes to steal mine

It comes as it always has

And in keeping me hid

There must be

Peace in the morning

Peace in the night

Peace in the daylight

Let it out stand forever

Does it outstand so plight

May it wash all us over

And its back-breaking crime

Let it cast me far forward

‘Til the end of my life

There must

Be peace when eyes are open

Peace her eyes to find

Let us rest till it’s over

Let us soak up the healing

Tonight

Not all were mine

I just want to thank you

I just want to thank you

I just want to thank you

I just want to thank you

I just want to thank you

I just want to thank you

I just want to thank you

Nathaniel Rateliff Something Beautiful

I was out

Skippin’ stones

In the end it’s what you know

Found my feet

They were firm

What you leave is what you burn

Won’t find me

In the second verse

Never found me in the first

Away

Does it bound and break

And you look so vain

Broke my heart

Broke my will

It was all so much to fill

Every turn

Every road

It would all lead back to you

Feel my words

Running out

How we end we’re livin’ down

Away

And I have a say

And it’s not too late

Show me something beautiful

Show me something beautiful

Show me something beautiful

I was out

In the dust

Kickin’ weeds out from the trucks

I was old

You were young

Who believe it ever come

Away

My hands can take

The trucks and breaks

But there’s nothing left of me

Show me something beautiful

Show me something beautiful

Show me something beautiful

Nathaniel Rateliff Laughing

You’re looking thin anyways

And you stare right through me

Surprised to be leg to leg

Is there a place we could run

And you could hide with me

And take our time doing nothing at all

We got tungsten rope tying us down

And this tiny crown

Will be our shield for hope and love

And I won’t know where we’re going

And I won’t know where we’re going

And I won’t know where we’re going

And I won’t know where we’re going

And I won’t know where we’re going

Until we’re gone

Pretend you’re the wind

Pretend I’m the sun

And how warm I make

How warm I make

Your air

And if it’s not too much love

Cover my eyes for me

It’s a bright morning

And we’re waking up

And I won’t know where we’re going

And I won’t know where we’re going

And I won’t know where we’re going

And I won’t know where we’re going

And I won’t know where we’re going

Until we’re gone

Even when they got us pinned, we’re laughing

Even when they got us pinned, we’re laughing

Even when they got us pinned, we’re laughing

Even when they got us pinned, we’re laughing

Even when they got us pinned, we’re laughing

We’re laughing

We’re laughing

We’re laughing

We’re laughing

We’re laughing

Nathaniel Rateliff S.O.B.

I’m gonna need someone to help me

I’m gonna need somebody’s hand

I’m gonna need someone to hold me down

I’m gonna need someone to care

I’m gonna writhe and shake my body

I’ll start pulling out my hair

I’m gonna cover myself with the ashes of you

And nobody’s gonna give a damn!!!

Son of a bitch, give me a drink

One more night

This can’t be me

Son of a bitch

If I can’t get clean I’m gonna drink my life away

Now for seventeen years I’ve been throwing them back

Seventeen more will bury me

And somebody please just tie me down

Or somebody get me a goddamn drink

Son of a bitch, give me a drink!

One more night

This can’t be me

Son of a bitch!

If I can’t get clean I’m gonna drink my life away

Hey! Hey!

My heart is breaking, hands are shaking

Bugs are crawling all over me!

My heart is breaking, hands are shaking

Bugs are crawling all over me

My heart was aching, hands are shaking

Bugs are crawling all over me

My heart was aching, hands are shaking

Bugs are crawling all over me

Son of a bitch, give me a drink

One more night

This can’t be me

Son of a bitch

If I can’t get clean I’m gonna drink my life away

Son of a bitch, give me a drink

Son of a bitch

This can’t be me

Son of a bitch

If I can’t get clean I’m gonna drink my life away

Yeah ah
