by Will Oldham<br><br>Don't you want to go where things move slow?<br>Give me a little time to take what I know<br>Follow the oceanline, follow the flow<br>Give me a little time to take what I know<br><br>Oh, and he's calling, but I do not answer<br>I am hunting for me now, and I must go quietly<br>And it's a hard way of walking, oh and I know<br>It's a hard way of talking, oh and I know<br><br>Oh, don't let your guard down,<br>and don't live far from town<br>Follow the oceanline, follow the flow<br>Give me a little time to take what I know<br>Give me a little time to take what I know<br><br>Oh, Lordy, Lordy, I am downstairs crying<br>They try and shush me, but I holler gleefully<br>In a house made for sleeping, oh and I know<br>With a mouth made of gold, oh and I know<br><br>I see him smile at me, smiling desperately<br>If only you would trust me, we would live happily<br>In a house made of silver, oh and I know<br>In a house made of platinum, oh and I know<br>Oh, hold the raft at the ready,<br>hold it fast, hold it steady<br>Follow the oceanline, follow the flow<br>Give me a little time to take what I know<br><br><br>
