The Ladder Lyrics | Lilly Van Sickle

I’ve got a ladder I’d like to climb
But the matter of fact, is it’s a matter of time
I don’t know where it goes,
I just know where it leads

People always pushing other off
But I don’t need that to get to the very top
Still I’m scared it’s a little steep

We all get tangled up sometimes in this silly life
Sink and stumble in search of our right minds
We all just want to cry sometimes and that’s alright
So focused on the ladder we forget to climb
Oh, don’t worry there’s good news
You know what?
I think life is rigged to lead us 
Back to love (Oh oh oh oh) 
Back to love

I’ve got a ladder I’d like to climb
But it’s booby-trapped and it’s not mine
A little lost each step I take
Nothing left to hold on to but all the things I’d like to do
I might skip a step along the way,
Hey, but that’s okay

And we all get tangled up sometimes in this silly life
Sink and stumble in search of our right minds
We all just want to cry sometimes and that’s alright
So focused on the ladder we forget to climb
Oh, don’t worry there’s good news
You know what?
I think life is rigged to lead us 
Back to love (Oh oh oh oh)
Back to love

No these knots are not too kind 
And untangling them takes time
My worries wake up slow, enough
No these knots are not for knives 
And untangling them takes time
Turns out they were all a sign
Back to love
It all comes back to love

And we all get tangled up sometimes in this silly life
Sink and stumble in search of our right minds
We all just want to cry sometimes and that’s alright
So focused on the ladder we forget to climb 

And we all get tangled up sometimes in this silly life
Sink and stumble in search of our right minds
We all just want to cry sometimes and that’s alright
So focused on the ladder we forget to climb
Oh, don’t worry there’s good news
You know what?
I know life is rigged to lead us
