Bottle Rocket (Live) - Lyrics

Well he lived his life like a bottle rocket
can't you hear him call
Well he lived his life like a bottle rocket
short fuse an' all
Well once he's lit you just can't stop it
that aint his fault
Well he lived his life like a bottle rocket
destined to fall back down to earth with some big plan
or blow up in your hand
or fizzle out, and never leave the ground
Well he lived his life like a rolling thunder
rumblin' along
Well he lived his life like a rolling thunder
clappin' to this song
Well he spits out rain an' bolts of lightnin'
every time he talks
Well he lived his life like a rolling thunder
tremble when he walks
but there's no need to hide your head
leave it tucked between your legs
if he wanted to, he could take us all
Well that bottle rocket's laid out waitin'
Well that rolling thunder keeps on shakin'
Well that levee it was built for breakin'
Well he's here an' now he's gone
Well he lived his life like a levee breakin'
water rushin' in
Well he lived his life like a levee breakin'
fillin' to the brim
Well do not go that water's risin'
look for higher ground
Well he lived his life like a levee breakin'
swallow up that town
Well there's no need to look back
keep your memories intact
Just follow him, and he'll take you there
(Well he's here and he's gone)
Well that bottle rocket's laid out waitin'
(Well he's here and he's gone)
Well that rolling thunder keeps on shakin'
(Well he's here and he's gone)
Well that levee it was built for breakin'
Well he's here, an' now he's gone
(Solo)
Well he lived his life like a bottle rocket
Well he lived his life like a bottle rocket
Well he lived his life like a bottle rocket
can't you hear him call
Well he lived his life like a bottle rocket
short fuse an' all
Well once he's lit you just can't stop it
that aint his fault
Well he lived his life like a bottle rocket
destined to fall back down to earth with some big plan
or blow up in your hand
or fizzle out, and never leave the ground
(Well he's here and he's gone)
Well that bottle rocket's laid out waitin'
(Well he's here and he's gone)
Well that rolling thunder keeps on shakin'
(Well he's here and he's gone)
Well that levee it was built for breakin'
(Well he's here and he's gone)
Well that bottle rocket's laid out waitin'
(Well he's here and he's gone)
Well that rolling thunder keeps on shakin'
(Well he's here and he's gone)
Well that levee it was built for breakin'
