Little Things

Copyright © 2006 Kelli Caldwell

ROUGH A CAPPELLA VERSION!


Texte alternatif


 

Little old ladies in beat-up cars
With all the lights in the city

You can’t see the stars
Keeping your head means

Usually keeping your heart

 

The clink of a quarter in an empty cup
That final look of resignation

When it’s time to give it up
Any goodbye

And the penny that no one picked up

 

Chorus:
These are the little things that make me sad
When I’m thinking about the world
Thinking about the race we’re running
These are the little things that make me sad
When I’m thinking about the ride on an easy life I’ve had

 

Listening on the phone to a robot’s voice
It’s got me lost in the system

Without any other choice
The movie’s begun

And there’s a fool in the back making noise

 

The dog would be a sweetie

But the owner is mean
You could be sharing celebration,

But instead you’re turning green
The World Wide Web makes it easy

So we choose the obscene

 

Chorus 2:
These are the little things that make me mad
When I’m thinking about the world
Thinking about the race we’re running
These are the little things that make me mad
When I’m thinking about the ride on the only I have

 

Little old ladies and little old men
Dancing to the music of a big old band
Lighting a fire a

And the touch of a sweet lover’s hand

Kids who’re waving from a yellow school bus
And now they’re laughing in hysterics

Next someone they can trust
x                   

And the penny that no one picked up

 

Final Chorus:
These are the little things that make me happy
When I’m thinking about the world
Thinking about the race we’re running
These are the little things that make me happy
When I’m thinking about the ride on the only life I’ll have
On the only life I’ll have
On the only life I’ll have




Lyric notes: saw an old lady in a beat up car... still working on details and maybe a bridge
