The Avett Brothers lyrics : "Ten thousand words"

Ten thousand words swarm around my head
Ten million more in books written beneath my bed
I wrote or read them all when searchin' in the swarms

Still can't find out how to hold my hands

And I know you need me in the next room over

But I am stuck in here all paralyzed
For months I got myself in ruts
Too much time spent in mirrors framed in yellow walls


Ain't it like most people? I'm no different
We love to talk on things we don't know about

Ain't it like most people? I'm no different
We love to talk on things we don't know about


And everyone around me shakes their head in disbelief
And says I'm too caught up
They say young is good and old is fine

And truth is cool but all that matters
Is that you have your good times
But their good times come with prices

And I can't believe it when I hear the jokes they make
At anyone's expese except their own
Would they laugh if they knew who paid?


Ain't it like most people? I'm no different
We love to talk on things we don't know about

Ain't it like most people? I'm no different
We love to talk on things we don't know about


And after we are through ten years
Of making it to be the most of glorious day dues
I'll come back home without my things

'Cause the clothes I wore out there I will not wear 'round you
And they'll be quick to point out our shortcommings
And how the experts all have had their doubts


Ain't it like most people? I'm no different
We love to talk on things we don't know about
