  • Even if I knew which way the wind was blowin'
    Even if I knew this road would lead me home
    Even if I knew for once where I was goin'
    I'm lost out here without you

    Rockin' the baby by that window here
    Plant tomatoes in the yard
    Naked by the mirror putting up your hair
    Baby it's hard

    And the kids came to see you for the last time
    I told them not to bring the children the husbands or the wife
    I said just the blood this time, just the blood
    They asked to be alone with you, so I left them alone
    But I didn't go far

    They said he's been drinking again
    He stumbled at the door
    He can't take care of himself mama
    We can't do this anymore
    And you said hush up children let me breath
    I've been listening to you all your life
    Are they hungry? Are they sick?
    What is it they need?
    Now it's turn to listen to me

    I was young when we met and afraid of the world
    Now it's he who's afraid and I'm leaving
    Make sure he sleeps in his bed at night
    Don't let him sleep in that chair
    If he holds out his hand to you
    Hold it tight that makes you uncomfortable
    Or if it embarrasses you, I don't care

    Even if I knew which way the wind was blowin'
    Even if I knew this road would lead me home
    Even if I knew for once where I was goin'
    I'm lost out here baby, I'm lost out here
    I'm lost out here without you Writer/s: Randy Newman
