Nahko – Alice Lyrics

SHARE
[Verse 1] Alice, Alice, I’m well aware
That there are some strange things where you live
And I won’t go there
Down which hallway and through which door
What’s this wonderland here for?
Turn my cards, queen of hearts says you go there

[Verse 2] Busy, busy, busy bees
These humans are such mysteries
Floating around and never knowing what they want
So go forth
Go forth with your morning, dear
With the sun’s arms on your back and the love that you left behind

[Verse 3] First of all, it was the year of the boar
And he greeted you with horns on your passenger door
In the middle of traffic, on the morning of our full moon
Fleeing into the coffee fields
I’m dragging goats tied to my heels
My friend is coming
And he means to reckon with me

[Verse 4] Favor his hands, blackened by fire
Favor our tempers and boyish desires
There’s a reason that you came to me lucidly in my sleep
Caught in the flow, I just did what I do
I worked with my karma and overtime too
There’s a reason that you came to me lucidly in my sleep

[Pre-Chorus] I am no coward
You’re superhuman
Tapped into power
Oh, the load is heavy
Will you be ready?
When the giants come
I will be there

[Verse 5] “You’ll get yours”
Came out of my mouth
To the man who bound my hands
I began to scream and I began to shout
Sir, I know I’ve done many terrible things
And I’m concerned to finally find me in my dreams
Such bad behavior, I am not the same

[Verse 6] I meet all my rage disguised as a man
An angel appeared with briefcase in hand
Didn’t speak when he reached, he just held me like you hold someone you love
Cradled, I wept right out of my slumber
Write it down, this is what I remember
There’s a reason that you came to me lucidly in my sleep

[Pre-Chorus] I am no coward
You’re superhuman
Tapped into power
Oh, the load is heavy
Will you be ready?
When the giants come

[Chorus] I will be there
I will be there
I will be there
I will be there when the giants come
(When the giants come)
When the giants come
(When the giants come)
I will be there
I will be there when the giants come
(When the giants come)
When the giants come
(When the giants come)
I will be there
I will be there when the giants come
(When the giants come)
When the giants come
(When the giants come)
I will be there
I will be there when the giants come
(When the giants come)
When the giants come
(When the giants come)
I will be there
I will be there when the giants come
(When the giants come)
When the giants come
(When the giants come)
I will be there
I will be there when the giants come

[Outro] Alice, Alice I’m well aware
There are some strange things where you live
And I have been there
