lyrics

It’s been a long, long time since I walked this way
And my mind it ain’t worked since yesterday
But I can’t get him out of my head

I can see him standing there all alone
With his dark hair, light eyes and man he’s grown
On me, he’s grown on me

And my heart slides down to the soles of my shoes
Each step pumps a beat of these terrible blues
Cuz he’s gone, he’s gone
For some goddamn reason, I just gotta keep holding on

He stood next to me as I watched them play
Some band that claimed they came from East LA
And he laughed as the lights came on

I remember his hands as they reached for me
They swallowed up my fingers to easily
And he led me through the crowd

And my heart slides down to the soles of my shoes
Each step pumps a beat of these terrible blues
Cuz he’s gone, he’s gone
For some goddamn reason, I just gotta keep holding on

After all we’ve said and after all we’ve done
I’m sitting here wishing that the rain don’t come
And wash it all away

Because the trees they bend and the sea it flows
But I’d wait a thousand years if you please don’t go
Away, don’t go away

And my heart slides down to the soles of my shoes
Each step pumps a beat of these terrible blues
Cuz he’s gone, he’s gone
For some goddamn reason, I just gotta keep holding on

And my heart slides down to the soles of my shoes
Each step pumps a beat of these terrible blues
Cuz he’s gone, he’s gone
For some goddamn reason, I just gotta keep holding on
