Vultures [Trio Set]
by John Mayer



Some of us, we're hardly ever here
The rest of us, we're born to disappear
How do I stop myself from
Being just a number
How do I hold my head
To keep from going under

Down to the wire
I wanted water but
I'll walk through the fire
If this is what it takes
To take me even higher
Then I'll come through
Like I do
When the world keeps
Testing me, testing me, testing me

How did they find me here
What do they want from me
All of these vultures hanging
Right outside my door
I hear them whisperin'
They're tryin' to ride it out
They've never gone this long
Without a kill before

Down to the wire
I wanted water but
I'll walk through the fire
If this is what it takes
To take me even higher
Then I'll come through
Like I do
When the world keeps
Testing me, testing me, testing me

Wheels up
I got to leave this evening
Can't seem to keep these vultures
Out of my tree(sometimes he says trail)
Powers is made, by power being taken
I keep on running
To protect(sometimes he says control) my situation

Down to the wire
I wanted water but
I'll walk through the fire
If this is what it takes
To take me even higher
Then I'll come through
Like I do
When the world keeps
Testing me, testing me, testing

Oooo
Oooo
Oooo
Oooo
Whatcha gonna do about it
Whatcha gonna do about it
Whatcha gonna do about it
