Mysterious Ways

From The Elvis Costello Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Johnny take a walk with your sister the moon
Let her pale light in to fill up your room
You've been living underground
Eating from a can
You've been running away
From what you don't understand...
Love

She's slippy
You're sliding down
Will she be there
When you hit the ground? (ah)

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways

Johnny take a dive with your sister in the rain
Let her talk about the things you can't explain
To touch is to heal
To hurt is to steal
If you want to kiss the sky
Better learn how to kneel
On your knees boy

She's the wave
She'll turn the tide
She sees the man inside the child, yeah

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways, yeah
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright / Love, oh love
Lift my days, light up my nights, love

One day you will look... back
And you'll see... where
You were held... how
By this love... while
You could stand there
You could move on this moment
Follow this feeling

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
She moves in mysterious ways

[etc repeats in background]
It's alright, it's alright, alright
We move through miracle days
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
Spirit moves in mysterious ways

Oh... love
Oh love, love love
Oh-oh high
Oh love love

Move it
Spirit move
Spirit move
Baby love there
Move
Baby love me
Move it baby
Love time

Let me move with it
She moves with it
Lift my days, light up my nights
Love
