Cause and Cure
Lyrics
Copyright © 2010 Jim Ferrie music

I'm Jonah, I'm Icarus, I am Prometheus too
What I am to do with you
When you're the cause and the cure?

Just when I feel I'm sinking, goin' down, goin' down
You reach into the raging waters and I rise, yeah I rise
Then you go and push me under once again

Just when I feel I'm flying, high above, high above
You reach up and erase my wings and I dive, yeah I dive
Then you go and break my fall once again

I'm Jonah, I'm Icarus, I am Prometheus too
What I am to do with you?
You're the cause and the cure!

Just when I see you crying, tears of pain, tears of pain
I reach to you to lend a hand share your load, share your load
Then you go refuse my offer once again

Just when you hear me lying, to my shame, to my shame
You hide the lies from others' eyes none can see, none can see
Then I know I'll hold my head up once again

I'm Jonah, I'm Icarus, I am Prometheus too
What I am to do with you?
You're the cause and the cure!

So many times I've told myself to walk away
So many times I've told myself I must and yet I always stay

(8bar inst)

I'm Jonah, I'm Icarus, I am Prometheus too
What I am to do?
You're the cause and the cure

I'm Jonah, I'm Icarus, I am Prometheus too
I know what I must do.......
And yet I pause
To cure the cause
