Gary Brooker – Count Me Out lyrics

(G. Brooker / I. Sutherland)

When it's time for me to go
And I hear that whistle blow
I'll be waiting in line day or night
Take my hand and lead me down
Lay my burden on the ground
Break these chains and let me stand in the light
Now I know what the game's all about
If that's the way you want to play - count me out

Had enough of alibis, empty promises and lies
Trying to find a better life on my own
There's no easy way I know - now the strains begin to show
Still I'm looking for a light to lead me home
Though my heart's still full of doubt -
There's no way I'm gonna play - so count me out

I've been too long here breaking my back
Doing my best to get through
I never thought I could feel this way
But I need to find something new
It's not the money and it's not the gold
- I just want some peace of mind
My life is racing like a runaway train
Getting faster all the time...

Underneath a golden sky
Far away I'm gonna fly
To a place I know is there in my mind
Like a sailor home to die
With no journey left to try
Throw my spirit in the tide and lead me blind
Now I know what this game's all about
If that's the way you wanna play
Then count me out
