Hiss Golden Messenger – I Need a Teacher Lyrics

I Need a Teacher Lyrics by Hiss Golden Messenger


Love me harder
Cry like thunder
Kick the floorboards
Paint it a different color

Another year older
Debt slightly deeper
Paycheck smaller
G------, I need a teacher

Rock me, Daddy, I’m still your kid
The ways to you are oh so very different
Beauty in the broken American moment

Rock me, Daddy, happiness ain’t free
I see where you’re at, I know you can see me
Beauty in the broken American moment

Tell the truth, dear
Don’t be jaded
That’s no way to play it
To say it
To feel it

Lord, make me thankful
Though it ain’t easy
Give it away freely
It’ll come back to you eventually

Rock me, Daddy, I’m still your kid
The ways to you are oh so very different
Beauty in the broken American moment

Rock me, Daddy, happiness ain’t free
I see where you’re at, I know you can see me
Beauty in the broken American moment
