This Old Earthquake
This Old Earthquake

Lyrics

Another earthquake at your back

freight trains run off their tracks

run down a stairway to a place you've never been and I will let you in

When this old world becomes a trap

skyscrapers collapse

jump out the window on the 31st floor
and I will catch your fall

ooh I've got my eye on you

When fires rage across the land

and meteors turn us to sand

swim through the angry seas 
onto another shore and I will meet you there

and I will meet you there

This Old Earthquake
This Old Earthquake

Lyrics

And then one day his mind was blown up high

he finally saw the writing on the wall

he shook his head and laughed
instead of crying

he said I think I took my eye off of the ball

and it don't seem right to be so wrong
and all alone

no it don't seem right to be so wrong
and all alone

He found himself up scraping the sky

he never knew there was something to fear

he peered over the edge to his surprise

he said it's a long way down from way up here

and it don't seem right to be so wrong
and all alone

no it don't seem right to be so wrong
and all alone

This Old Earthquake
This Old Earthquake

Lyrics

She ran to the canyon, met a man

And the old home is falling down

I ran to California, thought I’d warn you

The old home is falling down

I slapped some paint on the siding, that ain’t hiding

The old home is falling down

Ran an ad tried to find a tenant

To mow the lawn and to pay the rent

But it ain’t easy in this town

And the old home is falling down

Nothin’ but weeds in the garden

The oak tree fell in the yard

And another winter is comin’ round

And the old home is falling down

And I couldn’t bear to sell it

Momma I don’t know how else to tell it

Broke my heart to let you down

And the old home is falling down
