Long Walk Home

from A Juggler On His Blades

sittin in your front yard tree
hummin a neil young song
cryin you can't come down
because of what went wrong
it's getting cold
you gonna let your daddy know
what's lost is lost now
they told you not to go

it was a long walk home that night
pulsed by the change
of the Westmoreland light
you locked your knees
you locked 'em tight
but someone put up a better fight

lying by your thirteenth lover
turning your back away
won't even hold his hand
and why you cannot say
it's getting sad
you gonna let your lover know
what's lost is lost now
they told you not to go

Chorus

sittin by yourself again
thinking bout that autumn eve
you start to use it well
you wear it on your sleeve
it's pretty cheap
when you convince yourself it's so
if you had that night again-
you know that you'd still go

Chorus
