​Blow Away

This song is by Grateful Dead and appears on the album Built to Last (1989).

A man and a woman come together as strangers
When they part they're usually strangers still
It's like a practical joke played on us by our Maker
Empty bottles that can't be filled

Baby who's to say
It could have been different now that it's done
Baby who's to say
That it should have been, anyway
Baby who's to say
That it even matters in the long run
Give it just a minute and it will blow away, it'll blow away

You fancy me to be the master of your feelings
You barely bruise me with your looks to kill
Though I admit we were sometimes brutal in our dealings
I never held you against your will

Baby who's to say
It could have been different now that it's done
Baby who's to say
That it should have been, anyway
Baby who's to say
That it even matters in the long run
Give it just a minute and it will blow away, it'll blow away

Your case against me is so very clearly stated
I plead no contest, I just turn and shrug
I've come to figure all importance overestimated
You must mean water when you beg for blood

Baby who's to say
It could have been different now that it's done
Baby who's to say
That it should have been, anyway
Baby who's to say
That it even matters in the long run
Give it just a minute and it will blow away, it'll blow away
