I Keep Comin’ Back

I love the way that the rain sounds on the rooftop over my head
like little animal feet
the way the clouds come down so low sometimes they seem to prowl the alleyways
and get into the side streets
and all the world goes soft and the hard lines disappear
and the echo of the footsteps is the music in your ear
and the sing song river runs all along the little crack
I’ve been all around the world but I keep coming back

the big boats come to the dock side, they tie off and unload
and they stay a little while
you get a bright light Saturday liberty night, you gotta do it up right
want to do it in style
maybe hear a little music, can I have this next dance
maybe fall in love if I get half a chance
with somebody like you, yeah imagine that
I’ve been all around the world but I keep coming back

first time I rode the bus it picked me up hitch hikin’
took me clear across town
I said I ain’t got no money, he said that’s alright friend
just get on board and lay your burden down
he said where you goin’ I said I have no idea
but this looks pretty good, I’ll get off here
and I went off walkin’ with my guitar across me back
I’ve been all around the world but I keep coming back

I rode that Fremont Bridge so high one time
I coulda scratched old Mr Moon right on the chin
I took a look at the water in the canal down below and I thought to myself
I’m gonna dive right in
yeah but I’m too young to go that way I ain’t ready yet
I don’t mind the fallin’ that far, I just don’t want to get that wet
it’s a carnival of circumstance, you gotta have a knack
I’ve been all around the world but I keep coming back
