The Cat Empire

The Cat Empire - Feeling's Gone

rate me

I used to ride up on the hill

And look down at the darkened

Silhouettes of tall black windowsills

And my heart jumped every ledge

Until one bright morning when I woke

I heard bells, girl she gently spoke and said

'Choice my man's to breath or choke

So go die, or learn to hope'

Get back on your way at the end of the day

Under the fire and the rain

The whole big bloody parade until that

That feeling, feeling's gone

You wake up on your own

Sometimes walls come caving in

Sometimes the world just hits your chin

And sometimes shadows haunt your back

And sometimes I feel so flat

Then like some rare eagle on the wind

Well it turns and life comes bursting in

And the earth you thought would beat you down

Lifts up and lights your ground

Get back on your way at the end of the day

Under the fire and the rain

The whole big bloody parade until that

That feeling, feeling's gone

You wake up on your own

Lifts up and sends you homeward bound

Lifts up and then you're found again

Lifts up and turns your world around

still scarred of love lived on the ledge

And the Earth you thought would eat you up

Well it lifts you high and fills your cup carries

And right then I learnt to hope

the point of hope

I knew the way ahead to go

lifts up and clears your hallowed ground

So scared that love lived on the edge

Scared of love lived on the ledge

Like love lived on the ledge

As if my love required a ledge

bring you down

Lifts up, your heart just leaves the ground

and how you love your ground

high above the ground

and the earth you thought would end your song 'song'

lifts up and now ... the feeling's gone feelings gone

And you wonder how on Earth you

When you're high
