lyrics

GENTLE

hey, I’m losing my way
took a little journey and got lost along the way
down in the black

now I'm looking over my shoulder
something's on my back
please be gentle with me

hey, I'm losing my way
there's the sky but where's the ground
I know I"m lost but look at all I found

when did dreams become illegal?
do I try to tell you what to see?
please be gentle with me

hey, I'm losing my way
guess I won't be playing today

hey blind man, hey blind man
can you tell me what you see
I've got this big black song I cannot write it out of me

hey old man, hey old man,
tell me what your life was for
I've got this big spirit knocking on salvation's door

I will write a song like running water
run by you wash you away
wanderers will wander in the dark sometimes
you know that's just their way

please be gentle with me

hey, I'm losing my way
guess I won't be playing today
