Rock ‘n Roll Wisdom. ~ Sara Lindsey

Via on Oct 3, 2011

I remember the first time I saw The Thermals perform in a small coffee-house-made-music-venue.

This song still makes me wimper.

I wish I could play this track on the biggest loudspeaker ever made in every language

so that the world could hear it and sing along.

Returning to the Fold:

“I regret leaving my soul

I forgot I needed it, to feel

maybe when I die

I’ll just grab it real quick

I’m coming right back

I regret leaving my mind

I forgot I needed it, to think

and maybe to keep me alive

can’t believe I got so far with a head so empty


but I still have eyes

wait for me

wait for me

but I still have feet

wait for me

wait for me

I regret leaving it all

I forgot I needed God, like a big brother

and maybe when I die

yeah when I die

I will die escaping

I will die returning to the fold

but I still have eyes

wait for me

wait for me

but I still have feet

wait for me

wait for me

but I still have faith

if I ever had faith

wait for me

wait for me…”
