Jack Johnson (musician)
Whoís to say whatís impossible?
Well they forgot this world keeps spinning.
And with each new day,
I can feel a change in everything.

And as the surface breaks, reflections fade.
But in some ways they remain the same.
And as my mind begins to spread itís wings
Thereís no stopping curiosity.
Johnson quotes
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you?
Must I always be playing, playing the fool?
Where'd all the good people go?
I've been changin' channels
I don't see them on the TV shows
Where'd all the good people go?
We got heaps and heaps of what we sow.

When youíre so lonely lying in bed,
Nightís closed itís eyes but you canít rest your head.
Everyoneís sleeping all through the house,
You wish you could dream but forgot to somehow.

Sing this lullaby to yourself.
Johnson Jack (musician)
We used to laugh a lot
But only because we thought
That everything good always would remain
Nothing's gonna change there's no need to complain.
And the water below gives a gift to the sky
And the clouds give back every time that they cry
And make the grass grow green beneath my toes.
Jack Johnson (musician)
Well Iím just people watching
The other people watching me.
And weíre all people watching
The other people watching we.
Well if I was in your position
I'd put down all my ammunition
I'd wondered why'd it take me so long.
But Lord knows that I'm not you
And if I was I wouldn't be so cruel
Cause waiting on love ain't so easy to do.
And know that if I knew
all of the answers I would
Not hold them from you. You'd
Know all the things that I'd know
We told each other, there is no other way.
Johnson Jack (musician)
And I don't pretend to know what you know
no no
now please don't pretend to know what's on my mind
if we already knew everything that everybody knows
we would have nothing to learn tonight
and we would have nothing to show tonight
oh but everybody thinks
that everybody knows
about everybody else
nobody knows
anything about themselves
cause they're all worried about everybody else.
Jack Johnson (musician)
It was you it was me it was every man
We've all got the blood on our hands
We only receive what we demand
and if we want hell then hells what we'll have.

You can't blame me sure the killer was my son
but I didn't teach him to pull the trigger of the gun
It's the killing on this tv screen
you can't blame me it's those images he's seen.
Well you can't blame me says the media man
Well I wasn't the one who came up with the plan
And I just point my camera at what the people want to see
Man it's a two way mirror and you can't blame me.
Jack Johnson (musician)
Its always better when we're together
Somewhere in between together
Its always better when we're together
Yeah, its always better when we're together.
Johnson quotes
Look who's laughing now that you've wasted
How many years and you've barely even tasted
Anything remotely close to
Everything you've boasted about
Look who's crying now.
Johnson Jack (musician)
Well I was eating lunch at the D. L. G.
When this little girl came and she sat next to me
I never seen nobody move the way she did
Well she did and she does and she'll do it again.
When you move like a jellyfish
Rhythm don't mean nothing
You go with the flow
You don't stop
Move like a jellyfish
Rhythm is nothing
You go with the flow
You don't stop
Why don't the newscasters cry when they read about people who die?
At least they could be decent enough to put just a tear in their eyes.
Jack Johnson (musician)
I want to turn the whole thing upside down.
Iíll find the things they say just canít be found.
Iíll share this love I find with everyone.
Weíll sing and dance to mother natureís songs.
I donít want this feeling to go away.
Love is the answer at least for most of the questions in my heart
Like: why are we here? And where do we go? And how come it's so hard?
It's not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving
I'll tell you one thing its always better when we're together.
Jack Johnson (musician)
With everything ahead of us
We left everything behind.
But nothing that we needed;
At least not at this time.
And now the feeling that Iím feeling,
Well itís feeling like my life is finally mine.
With nothing to go back to we just continue to drive.
Johnson Jack (musician)
Never knowing
Shocking but we're nothing
We're just moments
We're Clever but we're clueless
We're just human
Amusing but confusing
But the truth is
All we got is questions
We'll Never Know.
