Lucinda Williams

I've spent my life following things I cannot see

And just when I catch up to them, they slip away from me

I've been down a thousand trails I've never walked before

I found out that without fail, they lead me to your door

And the world keep turning round and round

It leaves me hanging in the air

My heart keeps turning upside down

And you're still standin' there

Lately I see all the signs, I feel it in the wind

The same thing happens every time that you come back again

I admit that there are nights when I sit up and cry

But sometimes I turn out the lights and pray you'll pass me by

Since you're gone my empty arms have nothing left to hold

And your memory cannot keep me warm but it never leaves me cold
