Patty Griffin - Off You Go lyrics

  Click to play this song!

Off You Go by Patty Griffin


Well he broke through the barrier and rode down the hill
A sound like thunder then everything stood still
Back home the widow wondered where he'd gone
In the evening the meadow sings without care
His eyes staring blankly up into the air
The cars far above him kept rolling along
Off you go into the summer
Off you go to the fall
You get tossed between the wicked and the wonder
Suddenly you stop feeling anything at all
Speed and alcohol the papers equated
For the record good judgement was not demonstrated
Rest assured this one was not drug related
Back home the young widow weeps and sighs
Explains to her kids how their daddy died
She closes the door to the room where he used to try
Off you go into the summer
Off you go to the fall
You got tossed between the wicked and the wonder
And suddenly you stop feeling anything at all
Well we all have occasion to slip on the path
Some get to pay for the aftermath
Some won't get another chance
To realize life has an ending
Well the widow moves on as the years progress
Starts her life over but never forgets
Down in the meadow there's darkness descending
Off you go into the summer
Off you go to the fall
You get tossed between the wicked and the wonder
And suddenly you stop feeling anything at all
