Mavis Staples – Little Bit Lyrics

SHARE

This life surrounds you
Guns are loaded
This kind of tension
Hard not to notice
Right, do what you’re told
Gotta keep your eyes wide
On this long, narrow road

Little bit too high (Little bit)
A little bit too low (Little bit)
Get a little bit out of line (Little bit)
But baby won’t it home

Poor kid, they caught him
Without his license
That ain’t why they shot him
They say he was fighting
So, that’s what we’re told
But we all know
That ain’t how the story goes

(Ha) Mhm, a little bit too high (Little bit)
A little bit too bold (Little bit)
A little bit out of line (Little bit)
Now my baby won’t make it home

Whole life surrounds you
Hard not to notice
Pay attention to the
Path before us

Little bit too high baby (Little bit)
Little bit too low (Little bit)
Little bit out of line (Little bit)
But baby won’t make it a home

You feel surrounded
Maybe you’re confused
Maybe you’re confounded
What is there to do

Little bit from you (Little bit)
A little bit from me (Little bit)
Simple as it gets (Little bit)
We set each other free

(Little bit)
(Little bit)
Little bit from you (Little bit)
From me (Little bit)
Simple as it get (Little bit)
Selling[?] each other free
