Indigo Girls
All That We Let In

Oooooooo
Oooooooo
Oooooooo

Dust in our eyes our own boots kicked up
Heartsick we nursed along the way we picked up
You may not see it when it's sticking to your skin
But we're better off for all that we let in

Lost friends and loved ones much too young
So much promises and work left undone
When all that guards us is a single centerline
And the brutal crossing over when it's time

Oooooooo
(I don't know where it all begins)
Oooooooo
(And I don't know where it all will end)
Oooooooo
(We're better off for all that we let in)

One day those toughies will be withered up and bent
The father son the holy warriors and the president
With glory days of put up dukes for all the world to see
Beaten into submission in the name of the free

We're in a nevolution I have heard it said
Everyone's so busy now but do we move ahead
The planets hurting and atoms splitting
And a sweater for your love you sit there knitting

Oooooooo
(I don't know where it all begins)
Oooooooo
(And I don't know where it all will end)
Oooooooo
(We're better off for all that we let in)

See those crosses on the side of the road
Tied with ribbons in the medium
They make me grateful I can go this far
Lay me down and never wake me up again

Kat writes a poem and she sticks it on my truck
We don't believe in war and we don't believe in luck
The birds were calling to her what were they saying
As the gate blew open the tops of the trees were swaying

I've passed the cemetery walk my dog down there
I read the names in stone and say a silent prayer
When I get home you're cooking supper on the stove
And the greatest gift of life is to know love

Oooooooo
(I don't know where it all begins)
Oooooooo
(And I don't know where it all will end)
Oooooooo
(We're better off for all that we let in)


Mirror lyrics:

(We're better off for all that we let in)
Oooooooo
(And I don't know where it all will end)
Oooooooo
(I don't know where it all begins)
Oooooooo

And the greatest gift of life is to know love
When I get home you're cooking supper on the stove
I read the names in stone and say a silent prayer
I've passed the cemetery walk my dog down there

As the gate blew open the tops of the trees were swaying
The birds were calling to her what were they saying
We don't believe in war and we don't believe in luck
Kat writes a poem and she sticks it on my truck

Lay me down and never wake me up again
They make me grateful I can go this far
Tied with ribbons in the medium
See those crosses on the side of the road

(We're better off for all that we let in)
Oooooooo
(And I don't know where it all will end)
Oooooooo

And a sweater for your love you sit there knitting
The planets hurting and atoms splitting
Everyone's so busy now but do we move ahead
We're in a nevolution I have heard it said

Beaten into submission in the name of the free
With glory days of put up dukes for all the world to see
The father son the holy warriors and the president
One day those toughies will be withered up and bent

When all that guards us is a single centerline

Lost friends and loved ones much too young

But we're better off for all that we let in
You may not see it when it's sticking to your skin
Heartsick we nursed along the way we picked up
Dust in our eyes our own boots kicked up

Oooooooo
Oooooooo
Oooooooo
