The Wallflowers (Jakob Dylan)
There’s three ways out of every box:
Fall out the bottom, or you crawl out the top.
F# B F# B
There’s three ways out of every, every box.
B Bb B
But if you can’t find your way out,
Then you just burn it to the ground,
B Bbm – Abm B – Bbm – Abm F# B
Then you’ll disappear like smoke into the clouds.
There’s three ways off a merry-go-round:
You either jump, or you let it slow down.
There’s three ways off a merry-go, merry-go round.
But if you can’t put your foot down,
Then you just burn it to the ground.
Then you walk away real slow back into the crowd.
There’s always somebody there for a laugh.
Then you’re the only one that’s left.
B Bbm F#
Now that’s what you get left behind in the wreck.
There’s three ways off a burning bridge:
You pray for rain or you learn how to swim.
There’s three ways off of every burning bridge.
But if you can’t find strength and you quit,
Then you can just burn up and sink.
Then you’ll drift away real slow down into the ground.
