Landlocked Blues  Bright Eyes

If you [C]walk away, Iíll [G]walk away  [C]
First [C]tell me which [G]road you will [C]take
I [Am]donít want to [G]risk our paths [C]crossing some [Am]day
So you [C]walk that way, Iíll [G]walk this way   [C]
And the [C]future hangs [G]over our [C]heads
And it [C]moves with each [G]current [C]event
Until it [Am]falls all [G]around like a [C]cold steady [Am]rain
Just [C]stay in when itís [G]looking this [C]way
And the [C]moonís laying [G]low in the [C]sky
Forcing [C]everything [G]metal to [C]shine
And the [Am]sidewalk holds [G]diamonds like the [C]jewelry store [Am]case
They argue [C]walk this way, now [G]walk this [C]way
And [C]Lauraís [G]asleep in my [C]bed
As Iím [C]leaving she [G]wakes up and [C]says
ďI dreamed you were [Am]carried [G]away on the [C]crest of a [Am]wave
Baby [C]donít go away,[G] come hereĒ  [C]
And thereís [C]kids playing [G]guns in the [C]street
And ones [C]pointing his [G]tree branch at [C]me
So I [Am]put my hands [G]up I say ď[C]enough is [Am]enough,
If you [C]walk away, Iíll [G]walk awayĒ   [C]
And he shot me dead [C7]    [Am]
I found a [G]liquid [C]cure    [Am]
From my [G]landlocked [C]blues
Itíll [Am]pass [G]away like a [C]slow [Am]parade
Itís [C]leaving but I [G]donít know how [C]soon
And the worldís got me dizzy again
You think after 22 years Iíd be used to the spin
And it only feels worse when I stay in one place
So Iím always pacing around or walking away
I keep drinking the ink from my pen
And Iím balancing history books up on my head
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase
If you love something, give it away

A good woman will pick you apart
A box full of suggestions for your possible heart
But you may be offended and you may be afraid
But donít walk away, donít walk away

We made love on the living room floor
With the noise in background of a televised war
And in the deafening pleasure I thought I heard someone say
ďIf we walk away, theyíll walk awayĒ

But greed is a bottomless pit
And our freedomís a joke
Weíre just taking a piss
And the whole world must watch the sad comic display
If youíre still free start running away
Cause weíre coming for you!

Iíve grown tired of holding this post
I feel more like a stranger each time I come home
So Iím making a deal with the devils of faith
Saying ďlet me walk away, pleaseĒ
Youíll be free child once you have died
From the shackles of language and immeasurable time
And then we can trade places, play musical grace
Till then walk away, walk away

So Iím up at dawn
Putting on my shoes
I just want to make a clean escape
Iím leaving but I donít know where to
I know Iím leaving but I donít know where to
