Crawl After You

Album: A Wasteland Companion (2012)
  • I cannot be depended on to lie here
    And casually watch as you go waltzin’ by
    I’ve been shook so bad that I cannot stand
    To utilize my fear.

    So I gotta crawl after you
    Tell you who I am
    I was raised by a tribe of Vegas cowboys
    Who claim I was born of a union
    Of dust and wind
    And when I came of age
    Well I sailed away
    A pine cone on the Rio Grande.

    Now I gotta crawl after you
    Tell you who I am
    And today is the day I caught up with you
    I see you walkin’ by the Cafe Moon ?
    Well should I stay here on this bus stop bench
    So strange to see you after all these years
    So I cannot depended on to lie here
    And casually watch as you go waltzin’ by
    I been shook so bad that I cannot stand
    To utilize my fear

    So I gotta crawl after you
    Tell you who I am Writer/s: Matthew Stephen Ward
