Vienna Teng - Shasta Lyrics

  • so far so good
  • you're coming to the bend at the end of the road
  • you put a hand to the belly that's foreign more
  • with every day like an oversize load
  • and you're thinking about clouds the color of fire
  • and the scent of an orange peel
  • the way Mt. Shasta explodes into windshield view
  • and your hands steady on the wheel
  • so far so good
  • coffee motel coffee diner coffee go on
  • styrofoam is drying like the tears that once did flow
  • starting 10 o'clock and ending at dawn
  • and you can't go back but you're going back
  • and you don't know what you'll say
  • you've got half-formed sentences
  • explanations for a life half-broken away
  • and they just may
  • they'll take you in their arms and then take out their knives
  • so you drive on thinking
  • so far so good
  • but you can't go on much longer like this you know
  • you're all alone in this world no that's not true
  • the nice Christian lady told you so
  • she was handing out pamphlets by the clinic door
  • saying "Jesus knows what you've been through
  • take the Savior into your heart my child
  • there's love waiting for the both of you"
  • well you don't believe but you have to believe
  • it's still crumpled there in your back seat
  • were you the hero or the worst kind of coward back there
  • putting pavement back under your feet
  • couldn't stand the heat
  • couldn't stand the thought of ghosts with a negative age
  • turn the page
  • OK
  • so far so good
  • you try to sing along to the radio
  • but it's not your language not your song
  • it's from some other time ago
  • and you're thinking about how someone died that day
  • the you that was so carefully planned
  • but then again maybe this life is like a sleeping mountain
  • waking up to shape the land
  • calm calm let it come let it come back to you
  • calm calm breathe on out you know you know what to do
