ALANIS MORISSETTE lyrics : "1974"

Alanis Morissette & 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 :

A lullaby
