Norah Jones "My Dear Country" paroles

'Twas Halloween and the ghosts were out
And everywhere they'd go, they'd shout
And though I covered my eyes I knew they'd go away

But fear's the only thing I saw
And three days later was clear to all
That nothing is as scary as election day

But the day after is darker
And darker and darker it goes
Who knows, maybe the plans will change
Who knows, maybe he's not deranged

The newsmen know what they know but they
Know even less than what they say
And I don't know who I can trust
For the come what may

'Cause we believed in our candidate
Even more, it's the one we hate
I needed someone I could shake on election day

But the day after is darker
And deeper and deeper we go
Who knows, maybe it's all a dream
Who knows if I'll wake up and scream

I love the things that you've given me
I cherish you my dear country
But sometimes I don't understand the way we play

I love the things that you've given me
And most of all that I am free
To have a song that I can sing on election day
