Bill Callahan – The Sing Lyrics


You pyonged “Bill Callahan – The Sing”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

While sleeping
Strangers unknowingly keep me company
In the hotel bar
Looking out a window
That isn't there
Looking at the carpet
And the chairs

The only words I've said today are beer and thank you
Thank you
Thank you

Giving praise in a quiet way
Like a church
Like a church
Like a church
That's far away

I've got limitations
Like Marvin Gaye
Mortal joy is that way

Outside a train sings its whale song
To a long, long train
Long long gone

Then silence comes back alone
High as scaffolding
Until the wind finds something to ping
Or the pinging thing finds the wind

We're all looking for a body
Or a means to make one sing
