So They Say

David’s hand wiped off his brow

Said I’m gonna do it anyhow

Picked up a stone and let it fly

Watched it sail into the sky

That’s how the story goes

How it’s told from day to day

Ten million people singin,’ it can’t be wrong

So they say

Samson walked on down the road
Carryin’ round a heavy load
Battle sprang up everywhere
Cause his girlfriend cut his hair

When the rain came tumblin’ down
Prophet said you’re gonna drown
So they built themselves an ark
Two by two into the dark

Moses lifted up a hand
Took the sea and made it sand
Showed ‘em to the promised land
Milk and honey, ain’t it grand

True love will come around some day
Make all my troubles go away
Shoot an arrow through my heart
Never wanna be apart


from Bright Street, released October 5, 2010
