Throw Me A Line

This song is by Carrie Newcomer and appears on the album The Geography Of Light (2008).

Why do I worry so much, it can't add a day or year?
And it usually comes down to a matter of love or fear
And I really don't know, and I can't tell you why
One sparrow falls to the ground and another one flies

Oh, could you throw me a line
Could you take me in?
Yeah the worlds turning faster now
Than it ever has been
And what used to be sure
Up and walked out the door
And the old ways I knew
Just don't work anymore

Some days I'm a bird. Some days I am the song
And sometimes I am a storm, some days I'm just plain wrong
There's a still quiet voice and it sounds a little like mine
Saying "You're right where you should be. It's just gonna to take time"

Oh could you throw me a line
Could you take me in?
Yeah the worlds turning faster now
Than it ever has been
And what used to be sure
Up and walked out the door
And the old ways I knew
Just don't work anymore

When it all breaks down
When there's nothing to lose
When there's no more to say and there's nothing to prove
Oh yes, bring it on, all things living in you
You're not just what happened, you can be something new
But what you leave to the shadows, what stays in the dark
Will grieve you and seize you and cripple your heart

Oh could you throw me a line
Could you take me in?
Yeah the worlds turning faster now
Than it ever has been
And what used to be sure
Up and walked out the door
And the old ways I knew
Just don't work anymore
