Blues Traveler After What Lyrics

And if I take a different tack

Well then forgive me if the long way round

Confuses up the point until you’re numb enough to hear

That you’re using the anointing oil like it’s sacramental beer

And don’t blame heaven or hell

You have to look to yourself

And nobody else will lift a light to make you see

Don’t got to learn a damn thing

Part of being free

And I realize

When I buck my place

It’s my feet but it’s their race

And I don’t run unless you try to chase me

And I don’t leave unless you offer me a stay

And I won’t fight unless I’m cornered or if I’m after what I want

What that is I wish that I could say

So forgive me or forget you

If you think you cannot bear

Believe me life won’t let you

If you blink you shall not fare

But should you get the chance

Try to make for the fence

It’s a subtle dance we do

To stay in from the cold

And the cleverest ones

Get to be real old

I may struggle

I may complain

But I’m just trying to grab at the reins

And I don’t run unless you try to chase me

And I don’t leave until you offer me a stay

And I don’t fight unless I’m cornered or if I’m after what I want

What that is I wish that I could say

I don’t run unless you try to chase me

And I don’t leave until you offer me a stay

And I don’t fight unless I’m cornered or if I’m after what I want

What that is I wish that I could say

And if I’m wondering where to go well then forgive me if I don’t know
