Wainwright, Rufus - Jericho Lyrics

I keep thinking that you are going to change
I keep thinking that you are going to rearrange
But I’m a fool to think something so impossible
You ain’t ever gonna change
You ain’t ever gonna change
Oh no Jericho
Until I blow

I keep thinking that you are going to rise
I keep thinking that you are going to compromise
But I’m a fool to think something so improbable
You ain’t ever gonna rise
You ain’t ever gonna rise
Oh no Jericho
Until I take you by surprise

Baby I know that you’re too sad to cry
But my little darling guess what? So am I
Still I believe we ought to shed a tear
The open hearted have no thing to fear
But I don’t even think you hear me at all
Under your medieval ceiling behind your biblical wall
Guess I’ll have to put my trumpet back in the case
And get behind this here canon covered in lace
Covered in lace

I keep thinking that you are going to change
I keep that you are going to rearrange
But I’m a fool to think something so impossible
You ain't ever gonna change
You ain't ever gonna change
Oh no Jericho
Until I blow
Until I blow

    just awesome

  17. Katherine Dupoise

    Middle age spread, my butt! Rufus is skinny, he thinks he has middle age spread, but he's skinny in this video. And he's still skinny today! Look at his pix! He looks like a toothpick! Not a colored toothpick, a WHITE toothpick!

    andrew johnson

    Katherine Dupoise wtf are you talking about?

    Katherine Dupoise

    @andrew johnson it's a joke. I read somewhere that he thinks he has middle age spread but I don't think so, because in his pictures, he looks super duper extremely skinny. And a toothpick is skinny, right? And Rufus is Caucasian so that's why I said not a COLORED toothpick, so people would also know that I was talking about the regular toothpicks and not the red, green, blue, and yellow toothpicks you can also get.

  18. Jacqueline

    Haha ja ik ook!

  56. Diora Noble

    lyrics pleeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssssssseee!

  57. Jerry Guest

    This was the best concert I have experienced in a long time. He performed solo; just him, his grand piano, and his accoustic guitar. He played several cuts from his latest including Jericho, Out of the Game. He played Cigarettes & Chocolate Milk. His first encore was Hallelujah. It was awesome. He even came out through the stage door; had photos taken with fans; signed albums. He had his way with us for 3 hours; and I enjoyed every nanosecond. Best concert I've seen, ever. A must see!

  58. Jerry Guest

    After listening to this last night I noticed that he was going to be at the Power Center for The Performing Arts on the beautiful U of M campus in Ann Arbor, MI on Saturday, 30JUN12. So, I thought, what the heck nothing ventured, nothing gained. I'm going, and can't wait. For what it's worth, I'll report back upon my retrun. (Like who gives a flying fuck, right? So, please don't light up my "in box" with "glittering generalities, lmfao. Ah, heck, go ahead hehehe
