      About "The Things That Everybody Does"

      Lyrics for Tift Merritt - "The Things That Everybody Does"

      Everybody told me this is who you have to be
      My hands in my pockets as deep as they go
      I walked home and packed up my cases to leave
      I walked all over this country
      I went down to the sea

      I talked a lot with the sun and the sky
      I didn't talk much with anyone else really
      These are the things that everybody does
      I always wondered what was all the fuss
      I never knew exactly what it was

      Till there was you
      Till there was you
      Till there was you

      You found me up in the attic, singing down to the leaves
      You caught me reading love letters aloud
      To horses and children, to stars and to trees
      These are the things that everybody does
      I always wondered what was all the fuss
      I never knew exactly what it was

      Till there was you
      Till there was you
      Till there was you

      But a mountain is still a mountain
      A mountain goes to the sea
      No matter what I'd like to pretend
      No matter what I'd like it to be
      No, I don't have to stay here
      I could fly off and leave

      On the wings of a unicorn's breast
      My typewriter strapped with diamonds to my chest
      But how could I go with breakfast not over yet?
      These are the things that everybody does
      I always wondered what was all the fuss
      But what a lovely morning that it was

      When there was you
      When there was you
      When there was you
      When there was you
