David Gray - First Chance Lyrics

Like a bird upon release
Through the atmosphere
Like a honking flock of geese
Winter drawing near
As the fabric comes unstitched
Hearts and minds and eyes bewitched
Standing watching for the smoke to clear

First chance I get I’m gone

Moses had his tablets yeah
Noah had his ark
All I got’s a haystack needle
Stabbing in the dark
Anguished cries and old footfalls
Permeate these paper walls
Need some action all you get is talk

First chance I get
I’m gone I’m outta here
First chance I get
I’m gone I’m outta here

Here’s one for the boys back home yeah
Here’s one for your spokes
A little taste of victory
To send back to your folks
Here’s one for the fireside
The grinning groom the blushing bride
Come and feast your eyes upon the hoax

First chance I get
I’m gone I’m outta here
First chance I get
I’m gone I’m outta here

Over Lake Superior
And the Arctic Sea
Through the dark interior
The stolen territory
Want it with the cream on top
One more lifetime swallowed up
He’ll be back yeah just you wait and see

First chance I get
I’m gone I’m outta here
First chance I get
I’m gone I’m outta here
First chance
First chance
I’m outta here
First chance
First chance
I’m outta here

And it’s a long way back
From where you are
And it’s a long way back
From where you are
And it’s a long way back
From where you are
It’s a long
It’s a long
It’s a long
