From the recording Texas Blue

Lyrics

Run Me Down Easy

I'm always slipping
from your loving embrace
And I can't keep up with the times
Everyone's searching
for answers these days
The questions are harder to find
But you run me down easy
I've already been there
Don't have the vision
To keep in your lines
I gave up my stature
I gave up on structure
I repainted all of the signs

Time keeps on moving
You know I do too
I have suffered the fools
I have bloomed out of season
Mistaken time for a pitiless thief
I followed my logic
Until I ran out of reason
And I've been burnin’ out
All the demons within
So if I start smoking
Don't bother dousing

It's a long time coming
That it takes to begin
When you're a long time
Out in the rain

And you run me down easy
I've already been there
Don't have the vision
To keep in your lines
I gave up my stature
I gave up on structure
I repainted all of the signs

Run me down easy
I’ve already broken
Can't make the money
I won’t do the time
But run me down hard
And your hounds will not catch me
I am no longer running behind

I see a daybreak ahead
And the coming of night
I see a view of my hills
In the transcendent light

A coming of age
And the calm in the storm
And the quiet condemning the noise
