AMERICANA FOLK ROOTS

Lyrics

CAN’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER Pete James ….Melhuish
1.
YOU CAN’T TELL THE DAY BY THE WEATHER
THEY TOLD ME STORIES SO FORGET HER
EVERYONE’S GOT A BREAKING POINT
I NEEDED TO READ & TAKE ANOTHER LOOK
THERE’S SO MANY THINGS UNDISCOVERED
CUZ YOU CAN’T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER
-------
YOU SEE CHILDREN PLAYING OUT WITH ONE ANOTHER
THEY DON’T SEE BAD OR DIFFERENT COLOURS
NO SKELETONS IN THE CUPBOARD
THERE LIVING IN THE DAY THE FUTURES JUST A HAZE
EVERYONE’S THEIR SISTER AND BROTHER
CUZ THEY DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER
------------------------------Bridge
TEARS TRACE THE LINES ON HER FACE
HER SMILE YOU SEE WAS JUST A FAKE
THE PAIN INSIDE WON’T RECOVER
HER MIND NEEDS TO DE-CLUTTER
YOU CAN’T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER
----------------
MAYBE I JUST DIDN’T SEE
THE GIRL RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME
MADE UP MY MIND TOO SOON
SHOULD HAVE LOOKED DEEPER WHAT WAS HIDDEN UNDERNEATH
I GUESS YOU WERE A BETTER LOVER, NOT A SIGNIFICANT OTHER
CUZ YOU CAN’T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER
