Banks of the Deep End

by Warren Haynes, Mike Gordon, and Joseph Linitz

On the banks of the deep end - where your soul is your best friend
Searching for a reason to go astray
Wild dreams turn to nightmares - silver clouds turn to golden stairs
And everything that you used to know is slipping away

Here, I've got my puzzle piece - only got it for a short-term lease
No time for asking - no going back to get hurt
I take a little from the mixture - try to fit it into the picture
Got a place where you're standing - dig your shoes into the dirt

Trying hard to get back - runnin' on the stones
Put you on my shoulders - you can be the only one
See the world's still spinning 'round - gettin' dizzy when we look

There a reason to be home - there's a feeling when you smile
But it feels like it might take over - this feeling deep inside
And there's a distance down the line - far away from the station
We can leave it all behind on a rolling creation

Sit away from the window - and lock the door
Can't you learn from the last time - and the time before?
See the world's still spinning 'round - gettin' dizzy when we look

Got to leave town to see the yellow flowers bloom
Sun going down - it's gonna be rising soon

On the banks of the deep end - twisted as the riverbend
Searching for a reason to go astray

You couldn't hire twenty-five men to do what the man could do
Just the sound of his walking could split the whole damn town in two
Into the night full of shadows he still walks when the thunder rolls
This river ain't shallow - reminds us that the bell still tolls

Bears in the kitchen - tigers on TV
The singer's pretending that this song's for me
See the world's still spinning 'round - gettin' dizzy when we look

You took a wrong turn down by the waterline
Heard they had to drag you off the sand
Find a dune and the wind will miss you
Hold on to a piece of dry land
Got to hold on to a piece of dry land
Got to hold on to a piece of dry land

On the banks of the deep end
Where I lost my best friend
Searching for a reason
To go astray

My score:

This song is very special to me.I liked it from the first time I bought it.But it took on a whole new meaning after I lossed my best friend suddenly in Febuary to heart failure.This song is very spiritual and heart warming. The lyrics are haunting yet somehow soothing to me.It just a very great song.
