Keep On Walking

Album: All The Little Lights (2012)
  • Well last night I couldn't sleep
    I got up and started walking
    Down to the end of my street
    And on into town
    Well I had no one to meet
    And I had no taste for talking
    Seems I'm talking my whole life
    It's time I listen now

    Well I walk past the late night boys
    With their bottles in their doorways
    And I walk past the business men
    Sleeping like babies in their cars
    And I thought to myself oh, son
    You may be lost in more ways than one
    But I have a feeling that it's more fun
    Than knowing exactly where you are

    Like a stone carried on the river
    Like a boat sailing on the sea
    Well I keep on walking
    Oh, I keep on walking
    Till I fine that old love
    Or that old love, comes to finds me

    Well I walked into the morning
    And felt that warm sunlight forming on my shoulders
    'Cause it hit with no warning
    Like a summer sky storming in my lungs
    Ain't it funny how the kids walk by
    They'll do anything to make themselves look older
    While the women spend their money
    On anything that makes them look young

    Like a stone carried on the river
    Like a boat sailing on the sea
    Oh, I keep on walking
    Oh, I keep on walking
    'Till I fine that old love
    Or that old love, comes to finds me

    Oh, lo, no
    Oh, oh, oh, no
    Oh, lo, oh
    Oh, oh, oh

    Well I'm like a stone,
    And I'm carried on the river
    Like a boat sailing on the sea
    Oh, well I keep on walking
    Oh, well I keep on walking
    'Till I fine that old love
    Or that old love, comes to finds me Writer/s: MICHAEL DAVID ROSENBERG
