indigo girls – hammer and a nail testo

attendere prego...

clearing webs from the hovel
a blistered hand on the handle of a shovel
i’ve been digging too deep, i always do.
i see my face on the surface
i look a lot like narcissus
a dark abyss of an emptiness
standing on the edge of a drowning blue.
i look behind my ears for the green
even my sweat smells clean
glare off the white hurts my eyes
gotta get out of bed get a hammer and a nail
learn how to use my hands, not just my head
i think myself into jail
now i know a refuge never grows
from a chin in a hand in a thoughtful pose
gotta tend the earth if you want a rose.
i had a lot of good intentions
sit around for fifty years and then collect a pension,
started seeing the road to h-ll and just where it starts.
but my life is more than a vision
the sweetest part is acting after making a decision
i started seeing the whole as a sum of its parts.
my life is part of the global life
i’d found myself becoming more immobile
when i’d think a little girl in the world can’t do anything.
a distant nation my community
a street person my responsibility
if i have a care in the world i have a gift to bring.
