Ribbon Road lyrics


Too Small a Town

Too small a town to hold me
too small a world to live
too small a picture to receive
too small a gift to give
too dark for the night owl
too shallow for the sea
too low for the highest mountain
far too small for me

Chorus
And though it's lonely high out here
the air is rarified
too small a frame for the photograph
too much to deny

Too slow for the fastest car
too long a road by far
too hard a tune for the nightingale
too big to put in a jar
too ripe for the harvest
too loud for harmony
too outrageous for everyone
its far too small for me
too dull for the finest hour
far too far to fall
too dry for the April shower
I can still hear the call

Too loud for harmony
far too small for me
too small a world to live
too small a gift to give
