THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND lyrics - Nobody Knows

THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND
"Nobody Knows"

Nobody knows about
What's going on
With the world and the steel
And the flesh and the bone

River keeps flowing
And the grass still grows
The spirit keeps going
Nobody knows

Poets they come
And the poets they go
Politicians and preachers
All claim to know

But the words that are written
And the melody's played
As the years turn their pages
They all start to fade

The oceans still move
With the moon and the sky
The grass still grows
On the hillside

Got to believe in believing
Got to believe in a dream
Freedom is ever deceiving
Never turning out to be what it seems

It's amazing how
Fast our lives go by
Like the flash of the lightning
Or the blink of an eye

We all fall in love
And we fall into life
We look for the truth
On the edge of a knife

Heavens turn around
The river still flows
Spirit keeps going
And nobody knows

We all fall in love
And we fall into life
We look for the truth
On the edge of a knife

Heavens turn around
The river still flows
Spirit keeps going
Nobody knows

Got to believe in believing
Got to believe in a dream
Freedom is ever deceiving
Never turning out to be what it seems
