emmylou harris – slow surprise lyrics

there is a way that subtle changes to stay
barely noticed, hardly known
one day you´ll say my situation´s locked away
but by tomorrow you´re all alone
it seems so sudden, but it´s not, it´s only grown
from a scene that long ago was left
forgotten in the snow
and has a way with slow surprises all its own

it´s hard to show, but like a boulder rollin´ slow
or a rumble, deep in the ground
things whisper low, and by the time i really know
what´s been movin´, they´ve settled down
too late to see the way they´re shiftin´ round
too late to say there´s bound to be another way
it´s all been said and done without a sound

this comes to me, and now that i begin to see
it´s not dramatic, it´s nothing grand
i used to be half of thje whole of you and me
now i´m the limit of all i am

it seems so simple, nothin´ much to understand
you walked out and closed the door
said i don´t live here anymore
and now nothin´s hangin´ heavy in my hands
now nothin´s hangin´ heavy in my hands
