take your time now and take a look at me
the laurels and sheets never fit so comfortably
here comes the sadness
of being around too long
i don’t have the legs to outrun a disinterested throng

fallin in love outside myself this way
its how ive come to believe anything you say
ive been deported to outside your borders this time
asked for a ride got kicked to the side of that railroad sign

instr. bridge/solo

dont have the legs to outrun my jealousy
I lean like an orphan and sideways by degrees
if i had the gas i would leave now forever with you
the sky’s just as big as anything blocking our view.

intro riff- breakdown
outro ch:

Don’t take it badly, now - I’ve been around too...( rpt. call/ response) ….long


from The Green Key Will Let You In, track released March 3, 2012
