Little Feat - A Distant Thunder Lyrics




Give my best to those I care for
With friends a simple nod will do
I bow to those who've come and gone before me
A handshake to the past
It gets me through
Been a little bit good and a little bit sad
Let the dirt and dust fall where it may

A distant thunder and it takes my breath away
Tumblin' in a whirlwind pullin' clouds from the sky
Pressure is a pyramid in a scream that no one hears
A thousand lifetimes couldn't cover my tears
Oh cover my tears

Measured distance through the heartbeats
Measured time holds all my beliefs
These shotgun visions are all I've ever lived with
A scattered mind from a reckless youth
I cover my ears, I cover my eyes
Still all the fears, still heard the lies

A distant thunder and it takes my breath away
Tumblin' in a whirlwind pullin' clouds from the sky
Pressure is a pyramid in a scream that no one hears
A thousand lifetimes couldn't cover my tears
Oh cover my tears

Took convention for a rough ride
A genius under glass set adrift
Direction all but fading
Like a kiss that leaves you floating in a trance
The rivers I cross the memories I keep
A minute to smile, forever to weep

A distant thunder and it takes my breath away
Tumblin' in a whirlwind pullin' clouds from the sky
Pressure is a pyramid in a scream that no one hears
A thousand lifetimes couldn't cover my tears
Oh cover my tears

A distand thunder, I feel like I'm slippin' under
Tumblin' in a whirlwind pullin' clouds from the sky
Of all those times that I've turned and looked away
A thousand lifetimes couldn't cover my tears
Oh cover my tears

    Should've kept the manga colors for Formaggio tbh

    This song makes me feel small in a sewer while being tracked by a trap with a deadly aeroplane that also has a radar that tracks my breathing.

  3. JustAintThatWay

    Studio version of this one of the truly great R&R songs ever recorded. Payne's delivery unforgettably beautiful. Thing is the next track Vale Of Tears, goes even further - somehow. Great great tracks on that Feat release. This live take very Jamaica-ized vibe not a bad thing & certainly understandable.
