ALANIS MORISSETTE lyrics : "1974 (Live)"

(Live with Ryan Adams)

Ryan :

I was born in 1974
on a calm meticulous street
someplace in the sun

oh the air was sweet
and enough lights sprang sparks
through the window of the room

not as raw to a ridiculous tune
slightly out of key in the mother hour


Ryan & Alanis :
So leave me alone
So leave me alone

So leave me alone
I'm busy breaking bones


Alanis :
I was born in 1974
in a breached feet-first way

my twin opened the door
my very first dose of chivalry
I was dawned princess potential potent

with gold star and matching impression
big between two doors
small and loved and proud and unthreatened


Ryan & Alanis :
So leave me alone

So leave me alone
So leave me alone
I'm busy breaking bones


Ryan :
I bet you were strong

when you should have been weak
like a dam that wanted to break
I wish I were the stones

your river learned to roam
in whispering gaze


Alanis :
You were told in a kind North Carolinian way
to slow down, back up, or be hated

thank god you did not
and thank god you did
an angel either way


Ryan & Alanis :
So leave us alone

So leave us alone
So leave us alone
We're busy being grown


Alanis :
