ONE OF THE BEST ONES
Bruce Cockburn

Guess I’d get along without you
If I had no choice
It’s taken me this long to find you

Done a lot of getting ready for this
Some things we learn so slow
But look at you, you’ve got plenty
behind you

There’s a lot of ways to hit the ground
Not many answers to be found
We’re faced with mysteries profound
And this is one of the best ones

There are eight million mysteries
In the naked body
Can’t even sight on some distant horizon

Like the nine billion names of god
Don’t bring you any closer
To anyone you can simply set eyes on

But in the same way as it’s as real
Don’t always regognize what I feel
But of the dancing scenes that life reveals
This is one of the best ones

Say what you will
There’s no snake oil or pill
Can make love less painful or fine
There’s no theater
Even of the absurd
Can express what goes on in this
Meeting of hearts and minds

Guess I’d get along without you
If I had no choice
But please never make it so I have to

Paid a lot of dues to get here
And after all this life
I’m a loser if I don’t live with you


There’s a lot of ways to hit the ground
Not many answers to be found
We’re faced with mysteries profound
And this is one of the best ones

Tha gaol agam ort

I'm sometimes amazed at the ignorance of Bruce Cockburn that plagues the general populace.

One of the most difficult questions to answer I've found is:

"Bruce Cockburn...never heard of him. What kind of music does he play?"

Do you know as I got to work and was logging on to read journals, I saw this...and then proceeded to fall out of my chair. LOL

This member of the "general populace" may remain ignorant then when it comes to the lyrics. For I quite enjoy them.
