The Longer I Run

Inspiration has escaped me with all my travel the last few weeks, but I wanted to share this beautiful song and its lyrics with everyone. I hope you enjoy.

When my blood runs warm with the warm red wine,
I missed the life that I left behind.
And when I hear the sound of the black bird's cry,
I know I left in the nick of time.

Well this road I'm on is gonna turn to sand,
and leave me lost in a far off land.
So let me ride the wind till I don't look back,
and forget the life that I almost had.

If I wander till I die may I know whose hand I'm in.
If my home I'll never find
And let me live again.
The longer I run then the less that I find,
selling my soul for a nickel and dime,
breakin my heart to keep singing these rhymes,
losing again.

Tell my brother please not to look for me,
I ain't the man that I used to be.
Cause if my savior comes could you let him know?
I've gone away forward to save my soul.
