lyrics

Get It Together
(©K.Gordon/Gwil Owen)

So you lost your papa in the highway fog
A copperhead bite took your old hound dog
I know you’re taking it hard
Three days laying drunk in the yard
Staring down heavy weather
Can you get it together now?

You hunger for the lover who threw you away
But you’re cheating on the one who’s never strayed
She’s still on the threshold waiting
First plane home’s the one I’d be taking
Your fate’s light as a feather
Better get yourself together now

When you gonna get your shit together
Might be now, might be never
When you gonna get your shit together
Might be now, might be never
Better sit right down, and get it together now

It’s a sad world, full of joy
You can let it take you down,
Let it take you down--
Or get back up in it
And get it together now

You got a conscience clear as a winding stream
Your life flows by in a fever dream
While the ice melts and oceans rise
Is it too late or can’t we try
As this world we're killing fades to the sweet bye-and-bye
To stand up and make it better
Can we get it together somehow?
