Gregory Porter - Long List Of Troubles lyrics

[Verse 1]
Just like cold steel shot hot out of a gun
Just like a orange peel left all day in the sun
I've got no feel that's done left me scarred
What don't kill me has done made me hard

[Pre-Chorus]
Just like storms feel when you've got no place to run
Just like love feels when you thought she was the one
From the school of hard-knocks
Trapped between a rock and a hard place
What don't kill me has done made me hard

[Chorus]
I've learned to breathe underwater
And lay fire to bed
I'm just a man under pressure
Like Muddy Waters said
Disappointment can drop me
From a thousand stories high
I got a spare set of wings
Watch me fly

[Pre-Chorus]
Just like storms feel when you've no place to run
Just like love feels when you thought she was the one
The school of hard-knocks
Right between a rock and a hard place
What don't kill me has done made me hard

[Chorus]
I've learned to breathe underwater
And lay fire to bed
I'm just a man under pressure
Like Muddy Waters said
Disappointment can drop me
From a thousand stories high
I've got a spare pair of wings
Oh, watch me fly

[Verse 2]
Taxes are due
And I'm through with you
I've been lonely a long time
I'm hungry now
And I was hungry then
I've gotta know them
I've got a notice just the other day
They said that I'm underwater
I'm underwater
