					bittersweet
he threw his pipes over the edge he sighed and felt no worse he never could make up his mind are they a blessing or a curse he just drank down his second pint when a boy rushed in and cried look here i found your blessed pipes down by the waterside isn't life just like the autumn air it's bitter and it's sweet i will never understand it all but that's alright with me she tells herself she'll be okay this feeling it will pass she pours herself another drink and stares into the glass her heart is like the swelling moon that's sinking in the sky she says if i don't tell somebody soon i swear i'm gonna cry isn't life just like the autumn air it's bitter and it's sweet i will never understand it all but that's alright with me he walks around in silent rooms he always sees her face he slips into a chilly bed another in her place he waits for dreams to take him out to a boat down on the lake where everything is as it was before his big mistake isn't life just like the autumn air it's bitter and it's sweet i will never understand it all but that's alright with me cause i came down from the mountain and i crawled out of the sea i will never understand it all but that's alright with me k.savoca © 1999  Alcove Music/BMI

					runnin'
she saw you sneakin' off just before the break of dawn she watched you through the window as you pulled away with no headlights on she felt a little relieved she felt a little sad she thought you shoulda stuck around and then she just felt had you've been runnin' all your life you don't need nobody's help you've been runnin' all this time you don't need nobody else there's a string of diners up and down the coast you've got nicknames for the waitresses they know you like your eggs on toast some of them are married some gave up long ago some'll meet you out behind the kitchen when their shift is over you've been runnin' you know i used to love you and i was sure you loved me too i used to fantasize we'd live like other people do i loved your awful sneer loved your crumpled clothes one day i saw you walkin out like some late night movie ghost you've been runnin' next time you're sneakin' off just before the break of dawn say a prayer for the girl you leave where the blinds are drawn she'll feel a little colder she'll feel a little sad she'll hope to god when she gets older it won't hurt so bad you've been runnin' all your life you don't need nobody's help you've been runnin' all this time you don't need nobody else k.savoca © 1999   Alcove Music/BMI
