Globe - Billy Strings & Fences

Written by Billy Strings (William Apostol) & Fences (Christopher M. Mansfield)

Fences:
I want a lock of your hair
I’m pretty sure it cures disease
All you gotta do is lay your hands on me
Until the illness leaves

I want us to be happy
Live better than our families
All we gotta do is lay beside the creek
Until we grow a tree

Fences/Strings:
We’re swimming in the rivers and
We’re driving on the roads
We’re always moving forward like a fly
Upon a globe

Fences:
I swear I’ll try to believe
You love me just how god made me
A lack of faith, a man with no belief
Who passes in his sleep

And I’ll be your Kentucky
Pressed in your book, a dried up leaf
All you gotta do is promise to read me
The chapters may be brief

Fences/Strings:
We’re swimming in the rivers and
We’re driving on the roads
We’re always moving forward like a fly
Upon a globe

Strings:
When I wake up with a fever
It must have been a dream I can’t recall
It always feels like the rain is coming down
As soon as I come up

When I’m freezin’ through the evenin’
Your heart is burning like an anthracite
It quickens me in spite of all Decembers’ wrath
Throughout the aftermath

Fences/Strings:
Swimming in the rivers and
We’re driving on the roads
We’re always moving forward like a fly
Upon a globe

We’re swimming in the rivers and
We’re driving on the roads
We’re always moving forward like a fly
Upon a globe

Strings:
When you cross the stream
Well you do so to find me
And walk along the salmon like a psalm

And the steps you take
My break me without warning
And remind me of the sorrow in the song

Fences/Strings:
Swimming in the rivers and
We’re driving on the roads
We’re always moving forward like a fly
Upon a globe

We’re swimming in the rivers and
We’re driving on the roads
We’re always moving forward like a fly
Upon a globe
