Cat's Life

from the 1993 album 'Calling From A Country Phone'.

I could never understand how a woman or a man
Could live their whole lives never travel more than 40 miles
Seemed like a catís life
Never going far
Seemed like denial
Of everything you are

Could never understand
Struck me as mad
That you could gather it all
In the one place that you had
Seemed like a catís life
If youíre hungry you cry
Whatís 40 miles
Under one piece of sky

Walk out into the fields
Itís all in my hair
I look up
And I see you there
Itís just like a catís life
No crawling down a wall
Itís 40 miles
Whether itís big or small

Vould never understand
It struck me as mad
Like their whole live
But now I can

Itís just like a catís life
If youíre hungry you cry
Only 40 miles
Piece of sky

Just like a catís life
