Album: Ryan Adams (2014)
  • I can't sleep, can't go home
    Underneath the branches of a sycamore tree
    On a darkened road
    With this key, scratched into the wall
    I spell out your name, it's fucking with my head
    Fucking with my heart
    As the autumn leaves begin to fall
    Walking down the street where you and I would walk
    I see him
    Kim, Kim, Kim

    I can't sleep, can't let go
    Underneath my feet it's miles
    Nothing, there's nowhere to go
    With this key, scratched into my arm
    I spell out your name, it's ringing in my head
    Like a false alarm
    As the leaves begin to fall and grey
    Walking down the street I watched you walk away
    To be with him
    Kim, Kim, Kim
    Oh Kim!

    Like a crater, like I've never seen
    Walking down the streets we'll never walk again
    Kim, Kim, Kim, Kim
    Oh Kim!Writer/s: RYAN ADAMS
