enemy lyrics – jack johnson

after we spoke i had a dream that i broke
the teeth from a mouth of a snake
then i choked on the teeth
they were mine all along

i picked up the pieces when i woke
put them in a boat made of things that i don’t want to see
i blew on the sail
watched it drift out to sea
the further it drifted the closer it came to me
i can’t explain

so i took it apart in a billion boxes
there was only one thing
you might think i’m your enemy
but that don’t make you mine
and all i have now is sympathy
i wish that you’d stop trying

oh, please stop lying
stop la la la la la la la
la la la la la…

the hatred in the box then i locked it
the strongest one i made
i buried it all, grew a tree without th*rns
sat beneath its shade

you might think i’m your enemy
but that don’t make you mine
and all i have now is sympathy
i wish that you’d stop trying

oh please stop lying
please stop la la la la la la
la la la la la…
la la la la la la la…
la la la la la…
