Patterson Hood - I Understand Now
Overige artiesten: The Screwtopians

Uncle Phil said to me that woman is the death of me
I don't think there's anything I can do
She's got ways I don't understand
Putting words into my mouth, things I can't get used to

But then she dropped the cornbread in the kitchen
Uncle Phil smiled as if she'd just done the greatest thing

I'm not sure if I understood then
But I guarantee I understand now
I'm not sure if I understood then
But I guarantee I understand now

My cousin screwed up without a doubt
All of a sudden he wasn't hanging out
And that girl he said, she is the cats
Then he disappeared from sight without a trace

So they had a bunch of babies and they got a good jobs
Working hard to provide the best they can

And I'm not sure if I understood then
But I guarantee I understand now
Not sure if I understood then
But I guarantee I understand now


I'm starting to appreciate the value of generations changing hands
Family ties and lips and eyes pass it down, pass it down

Now the weatherman today said
Warm and cloudy, cold front coming in around sundown
And I'm walking through your house full of your beautiful relations
And I'm thinking that I'd like to stick around

And there are things I have said with one hand on the Bible
That are only now starting to make sense

I'm not sure if I understood then
But I guarantee I understand now
Not sure if I understood then
But I guarantee I understand now
I understand now, I understand now
I understand now
