oats we sow lyrics – gregory and the hawk

someday i’ll toss all your presents
and bury the letters left unsent
’cause it’s bad to do what’s easy
just ’cause it’s easy
and i wanna do what pleases me but i can’t

the road, she’d roll round the side of the mountain
with nowhere to go
but the heart, we know
when it’s needin’, it’s careenin’ toward bein’ alone

someday i’ll find the mind to mend it
and make dry these eyes i’ve gotten wet
’cause it’s bad to do what’s easy just ’cause it’s easy
i wanna do what pleases me but i can’t

the crow, he’d mow half the gr*ss on the knoll
with nowhere to go
but the heart, we know
when it’s lovin’, it’s leanin’ toward bein’ alone

the oats we sow
they could seed on forever with nowhere to grow
but the heart, we know
when it’s askin’ its exact twin, it will not be alone
