wiki/Patty Griffin - Noble Ground

I can fool myself like any fool can do
Forgetting which ones are glass or jewels
Nights of shattered pearls and rules
And no one without blame
No one without blame

I can live the life that’s been written down
Or fight the urge right to the ground
Right to the ground I stake my claim
My claim to noble ground

I squandered nights in silence
When singing was the cure
One day it turned around and looked at me
The beauty that endures

Behind the eyes
Beneath the stars
Below the walls
No, no, never far
Shining, shining, shining
On and on again

It’s very, very quiet
In this early hour
It’s only me, it’s only me
And the night-blooming flowers
Staking our claim
To noble ground
Staking our claim
To noble ground
To noble ground
To noble ground
To noble ground
To noble ground
To noble ground
To noble ground
To noble ground
To noble ground
