lyrics

Writing blues in the minor key
Get a sense in rapid speed
How years unfold so jaggedly
We act as though we’re living free

It’s west to roam or is it east
We’ll never get from beneath the beast
Clutching us to his leather coat
Where others fought for shreds of hope

And I fought when I was young and wild and able
But now the best crumbs fall far short of my table

Some people walk into disease
Despite the doings of good deeds
Their only fear is getting caught
Breathless when they think they’re not

I’m through with holes in memory
Spanning love and tragedy
Or speaking low in shadow rooms
Connect the author he’ll be calling soon

And I fought when I was young and wild and able
But now the best crumbs fall far short of my table

I had no kids, I had no kin
Stuffed box wood-like mannequin
Getting lost in idle time
Feeling found in simple rhymes

Feed the fool’s gold to me please
Help me get off of my knees
There you were in front of me
Reciting words of alchemy

And I fought when I was young and wild and able
But now the best crumbs fall far short of my table
