Indigo Girls - Look Long Lyrics

All the way all the way all the way to Nashville
We talked about God and the Devil
Everyone I know can sense Armageddon
We want to believe in something we’re unsettled

My grandfather had a telescope and a magnifying glass
Through the scope on starry nights we saw forever
And in the morning Florida sun I burned the grass with my magnifying glass

Look long
Look long
Look long

There’s a reason there’s a reason that they call it a Hail Mary
It’s all or nothing on a prayer
On the brink of loss we take our last shot
With my shaky faith will you still be there

My grandmother had Apollo mission glasses
Etched in red white and blue commemoration
I’m no AWOL patriot because I’ve dodged your party lines
I will always love my troubled nation this beautiful land

Look long
Look long
Look long

Me and Marsha went walking up in northern Minnesota
On a night so freezing cold the earth stood still
She talked about the prophecies and the future generations
And said will you keep the faith
I said I will I will I will

So we argue and we wrestle and we claim conviction
But we might as well be flipping coins
More would be revealed if we’d adjust the focus
On the shortest distance between two points

Because these aren’t the best of times and they’re not the worst
Just like the edge of the Earth is an illusion
God bless our brave little hearts and our inherent limitations
And our short-sighted plans and our collusion

Look long
Look long
Look long
Look long
Look long
Look long
