NICKEL CREEK LYRICS

“When In Rome”

Where can a sick man go
When he can’t choke down the medicine the old doc knows
A specialist came to town, but he stays at home
Sayin’, “No one knows, so I don’t”
Honey, when in Rome

Where can a teacher go
Wherever she thinks people need the things she knows
Hey those books you gave us look good on the shelves at home
And they’ll burn warm in the fireplace
Teacher, when in Rome

Grab a blanket, sister
We’ll make smoke signals
Bring some new blood
It feels like we’re alone

Grab a blanket, brother
So we don’t catch cold
From one another
I wonder if we’re stuck in Rome

Where can a dead man go
The question with an answer only dead men know
But I’m gonna bet they never really feel at home
If they spent a lifetime learning
How to live in Rome


 


wow…… last couple lines really got me.  Yes, I am on a halofest.  It’s raining and I can’t work – leave me alone!  And besides I just beat like half the game on legendary yesterday.  For those of you who haven’t played it yet:  Halo 2 on Legendary is a sick joke.  You will waste your life trying to win it so you can see 10 seconds of extra video when you win.  sheesh.  Gotta run.  I’ll post later with more genius brain things going on in my head.
