I'LL BE GOING

I am a stowaway, running from yesterday

Don’t you give my name away tonight

Haven’t made it far enough and I’ve still got some road to rough

So sweep me underneath your rug ‘til light

Well there’s a warm wind blowing and I’ll be going

 

I am a sorceress, lean into my warm caress

I can make you feel the best tonight

You won’t have to worry when all the saints go marching in

 

Baby I’ll be gone again by light

Well there’s a warm wind blowing and I’ll be going

 

And love can take you far, but lovers only ever break your heart

So gas, gas up your car, and go where no one tells you who you are

 

I am a wanderer and my hair is dirtier

Could you spare a comforter tonight

Have a little trust in me, I won’t steal your jewelry

I just need a place to sleep ‘til light

Oh there’s a warm wind blowing and I’ll be going

 

I am a pretty face, tell me how it’s gone to waste

Use me for your own escape tonight

You’re not too good to lie, oh you won’t ever see me cry

You’ll be just another guy by light

Well there’s a warm wind blowing and I’ll be going

 

And love can take you far, but lovers only ever break your heart

So gas, gas up your car, and go where no one tells you who you are

 

Oh who you are, oh who you are, oh who you are, who you are

 

I’m just a vagabond, learning how the road is long

No one misses if I’m gone tonight

I’m just a memory, if someone remembered me

Even my own ghost would leave by light

Well there’s a warm wind blowing and I’ll be going
