I love Counting Crow’s music in general because their lyrics have a lot of substance to them with plenty to think about. I love Mrs. Potter’s Lullaby specifically because it has a great melody that is a lot of fun to sing along with and some incredible imagery in the lyrics. How can you not love a song with lyrics like these?
Well, I woke up in mid-afternoon cuz that’s when it all hurts the most.
I dreamed I never know anyone at the party and I’m always the host.
If dreams are like movies then memories are films about ghosts.
You can never escape you can only move south down the coast.
I am an idiot walking a tightrope of fortune and fame.
I am an acrobat swinging trapezes through circles of flame.
If you’ve never stared off into the distance then your life is a shame.
And though I’ll never forget your face, sometimes I can’t remember my name.
