download mp3 Nickel Creek - When in Rome

I do not own any rights to this song or image.


Where can a sick man go,
when he can't choke down the medicine the old doc knows?
A specialist came to town but he stays at home
saying no one knows so I don't honey, when in rome

Where can a teacher go?
Wherever she thinks people need the things she knows.
Hey, those books you gave us look good on the shelves at home
and they'll burn one in the fireplace, teacher, when in rome

Grab a blanket sister we'll make smoke signals
bring some new blood, it feels like we're alone.
Grab a blanket brother so we don't catch cold from one another
I wonder if we're stuck in rome

Where can a dead man go?
A question with an answer only dead men know
But I'm gonna bet they never really feel at home
If they spent a lifetime learning how to live in rome.
