Supersede Lyrics by Jackie Greene

 

Supersede by Jackie Greene


Cookie cried for three days, until she couldn’t cry no more
she ate the fridge, jumped the bridge and wound up bloated on the shore
The children they all pointed at another painted score
and somebody asked: “can I take a picture?”
Well the heat down here is brutal, it’s hard to do what’s right
the locals shout that you won’t burn out if you don’t ever shine too bright
and I wish I was in your back pocket or in your bed tonight
I wish that i was loud so you could hear me
but oh, no
what else must I be?
it’s all inside my head I guess but it just reminds me
that I need you, honey I need you
there ain’t nobody who could supersede you
we’re not such strangers, so honey I need you right now
Now all the streets are paved with petals, the parade is coming through
it kind of feels like royalty cause’ everyone’s in blue
and yellow flowers falling, from a window too
falling to the feet of such a coward
The mayor is kissing babies, he’s almost way too kind
we’re filled to the brim with honest men, they’re just way too hard to find
so stare into his Public Eyes and watch his clock unwind
then find him old and drowning in the deep end
but oh, now
what else must I see?
It’s all inside my head I guess but it just reminds me
that I need you, honey I need you
there ain’t nobody who could supersede you
we’re not such strangers so honey i need you right now
You see, I long for a hickory morning with a waltz and trumpet flare
i’m doing my best to recover from what time cannot repair
and i’m sick of all this solitude and pre-rehearsed despair
my eyes are a hundred miles away from sleeping
Well I wish you’d write a letter, or telephone to me
this place is dark and there ain’t a spark of who I used to be
so the sick hearts of the unloved tell the brave souls of the sea:
“we’re all closed up, why don’t you come back when we’re open.”
but oh, no
what else must I be?
it’s all inside my head I guess but it just reminds me
that I need you, honey I need you
there ain’t nobody who could supersede you
we’re not such strangers so honey I need you right now
There’s a cracked and pale mirror, hanging on my wall
the church bell rings and the choir sings and I can hear it from the hall
Now you might not believe it, but there was no fire at all
we just danced for seven days wishing for water
Maria tells the fortunes, they line around the bend
a dollar for your problems, and five to know the end
They come from miles around
