LYRICS

Warren Haynes ft Railroad Earth “Is It Me Or You” Lyrics

Tears on the inside of your face
Not on the outside, no pain can penetrate
The palaces
Palaces you’ve built from the ground floor

Show on the dark side of your past
So long since you’ve tried to replace the wooden mask
That hangs around you’re neck
Some token of war

A survivor is what you call yourself
But have you looked through the eyes of someone else
Is it me or you, that’s killing you baby
Is it me or you, that’s trying to hang on

Like a bullet dancing in your breast
You hide the answer, pointed at my chest
With your painted eyes, the same eyes that used to be my window

Don’t deny her, never seeking help
But has it grown too late to help yourself
Is it me or you, that’s killing me baby
Is it me or you, that’s trying to hang on

You say nobody wants to save you
Nothing in this world can save you
But baby, I can save you, if I only knew
Is it me or you

Tears on the inside of your face
But not on the outside, no pain can penetrate
The palaces, palaces you’ve built
From the ground floor

WARREN HAYNES FT RAILROAD EARTH “SPOTS OF TIME” LIVE ON WFUV 7.30.2015
LYRICS

Warren Haynes ft Railroad Earth “Spots of Time” Lyrics

Spots of time flash before my eyes
Like ribbons of light
Helplessly I try to touch them
Before they disappear into the night

Running fearlessly as in a dream
Headlong into the wind
Cool night air, blowing through our hair
Moonlight dancing on your skin

Do you remember
How young we were or is it just me
Imagining like I always do
When we were once wild and free

Young man yearning for days gone by
Innocence once removed
Familiar feeling of a front porch swing
And a song, always soothes

Spots of time like windows appear
You can look out or in
But you can’t get to the future I regret
By going through the past, my friend

Do you remember
How young we were or is it just me
Imagining like I always do
That we were once wild and free

A mother’s tears, a sparrow’s wing
A lover’s eyes softly glistening
Memories that to me are everything
But to others maybe only ashes and dust (note 1)

Do you remember
How young we were or is it just me
Imagining like I always do
When we were once wild and free

Do you remember
How young we were or is it just me
Imagining like I always do
When we were once wild and free
Wild and free

“Is It Me Or You” is a great display of how each musician and their instrument come together to create a pure sounding tune. Mandolin, banjo, and violin add an earthly element to the song’s structure while bass, drums, and Warren’s electric guitar playing add an energized feel. Grateful Dead fans may also notice Warren’s sweet looking “Steal Your Face” slide.

For the Warren Haynes / Phil Lesh collaborative “Spots of Time,” the band really let loose and demonstrate their jamming abilities. Passionate soloing from Warren gives way to excellent violin playing from Tim Carbone.

Pick up Ashes & Dust on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3). You can also stream the full deluxe edition album and read our review here on Zumic.

Warren will be back on the road in late September after he performs at this years Lockn’ Music Festival. For more music, news, and tour information on Warren Haynes, check out his Zumic artist page.

    Music’s ok. Man, those guys all look really old. That violin and banjo guys are way old. I thought Railroad Earth were younger.

    • Carsonb

      Lol! Yep, the whole crew is up there. I guess they were younger once. Warren still looks pretty much the same.

      • Aaron Simpson

        Might be, but its feels like old dude music. Checked out RRe and thought some of it was dope, but this stuff sounds crusty.

        • bradbershad

          May be old but they’re fuckin good! One of the coolest albums of the year
