vultures lyrics – john mayer

some of us, we’re hardly ever here
the rest of us, we’re born to disappear
how do i stop myself from
being just a number
how will i hold my head
to keep from going under

down to the wire
i wanted water but
but i’ll walk through the fire
if this is what it takes
to take me even higher
then i’ll come through
like i do
when the world keeps
testing me, testing me,testing me

how did they find me here
what do they want from me
all of these vultures hiding
right outside my door
i hear them whisperin
they’re tryin to ride it out
cause they’ve never gone this long
without a kill before

down to the wire
i wanted water but
i’ll walk through the fire
if this is what it takes
to take me even higher
then i’ll come through
like i do
when the world keeps
testing me, testing me, testing me

wheels up
i got to leave this evening
can’t seem to shake these vultures
off of my trail
power is made, by power being taken
so i keep on running
to protect my situation

down to the wire
i wanted water but
i’ll walk through the fire
if this is what it takes
to take me even higher
then i’ll come through
like i do
when the world keeps
testing me, testing me

oooooooooooo
oooooooooooo
oooooooooooo
oooooooooooo
whatcha gonna do about it
whatcha gonna do about it
