lyrics

Sometimes I scare myself when I go out,
myself when I go out on the street
I can see myself like I'm floating above the ground,
pulling on my own puppet strings
Oh, I can see many versions of me!

Sometimes I scare myself when I go out,
hit the scene and I throw down, and like it's all meant to be
Sometimes the best part of the show's when it lets out,
take the barricades down and do whatever feels free
Oh, I can see the cracks in your street!

I've got gypsy's blood moving my veins around
I hear ancestors sing, but I can't explain the sound
I've got shaman's blood pushing my brain
Take it easy on me – my skin is a broken box

The way the whiskey sings may seem out of character
There's a ghost in my bones rearranging the compass points
The words you'll hear me say needn't frighten you
Just embrace what the night can do – spirits invited you here
Oh, I can see the hearts up your sleeve!

I've got gypsy's blood moving my veins around
I hear ancestors sing, but I can't explain the sound
I've got shaman's blood pushing my brain
Take it easy on me – my skin is a broken box

Sometimes I wear myself out and I slow down
Put my knees to the ground
and I lay myself down to sleep
