Lyrics: Unbound (Suzanne Vega)

Here’s another set of lyrics off Suzanne Vega’s new album Beauty & Crime. The other lyrics online for this song weren’t blatantly wrong, but had missing or incorrect words in almost every verse, and someone doesn’t understand the difference between “its” and “it’s”.

By the way, I think this is probably the best album of the year so far, at least in my opinion.

Artist: Suzanne Vega
Song: Unbound
Album: Beauty & Crime

I knew a plant
Whose roots were bound
And then returned
Into the ground

Every day
I watched it grow
Every day
It struggled so

Roots were bound, the roots were bound
The roots were bound into the ground
Watched it grow, watched it grow
Watched it as it struggled so

I dug it up
I cut the twine
And so like this
I made it mine

I watched it drink
And watched it feed
And grow beyond
Its simple need

Cut the twine, I cut the twine
Cut the twine and made it mine
Watched it feed, watched it feed
Watched it feed the simple need

Unbound, roots unbound
Unbound into the ground
Unbound, roots unbound
Unbound into the ground

I was once
Tied at the root
Confined with twine
Both mind and foot

I cut it loose
And now am free
As anything
Alive can be

(alive can be, alive can be, alive can be…)

At the root, bound at the root
At the root both mind and foot
Am free, now am free
As anything alive can be

Unbound, roots unbound
Unbound into the ground
Unbound, roots unbound
Unbound into the ground

Unbound, roots unbound
Unbound into the ground
Unbound, roots unbound
Unbound into the ground

(into the ground, the ground, the ground…)
