Galileo (Live) Lyrics

Galileo (Live) by Indigo Girls  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



Galileo (Live) Galileo’s head was on the block
Crime was looking up for truth
And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
I try to trace them to my youth

And then you had to bring up the reincarnation
Over a couple of beers the other night
And now I’m serving time for mistakes
Made by another in another lifetime, come on

How long till my soul gets it right
Can any human being ever reach that kind of light?
I call on the resting soul of Galileo
King of night vision, king of insight

I think about my fear of motion
Which I never could explain
Some other fool across the ocean years ago
Must have crashed his little airplane

How long till my soul gets it right
Any human being ever reach that kind of light
I call on the resting soul of Galileo
King of night vision, king of insight

I’m not making a joke, you know me
I take everything so seriously
If we wait for the time till all souls get it right
Then at least I know there’ll be no nuclear annihilation
In my lifetime I’m still not right

I offer thanks to those before me
That’s all I’ve got to say
’Cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime
Now I have to pay

Then again it feels like some sort of inspiration
To let the next life off the hook
But she’ll say look what I had to overcome from my last life
I think I’ll write a book

How long till my soul gets it right
Any human being ever reach the highest light
Except for Galileo, God rest his soul
(Except for the resting soul of Galileo)
King of night vision, king of insight

How long
(Till my soul gets it right)
How long, yeah
(Till my soul gets it right)
How long
