Jo Nash - 2 4 1 lyricsrate me
I went to a pawnshop to sell what I've used
To buy something else fairly new
But once I walked inside of that store
I felt as if I had been there before
I said hey sir, excuse me
Can you sell me something I've already seen?
And he said only a blind man counts on others to see
But if you buy two, I'll give you one for free.
I told him no, you can't convince me
To buy more of something than I need
I don't worry about what I own
'Cause only selfish men die alone
Hey sir excuse me,
Can you sell me something I've already found?
And he said only a crippled man counts on others to get around
But if you buy two, I'll give you one for free
And he held out his hands to me
His open palms were pointing to the sea
And there were so many lines
His skin was like the bark of an old tree
Hey son excuse me
Do you know how I became this wise?
Because I never close my eyes
So please, take my advice
Buy two and I'll give you one for free
