Jamie's Elsewhere – A Slave A Son lyrics

When I continued to run away,
What kept me in your hand.
Did you ever think your flock would stray,
Or that they wouldn't understand
When you said, "wait here,
'Til I return
With your brother that was lost
To the ways of the world"

It was your love that said
"You're no longer a slave,
But a son"
It was your love that said
"You're no longer a slave,
But a son"
But a son

Catch me in your arms
Like stars in the eyes of telescopes,
And once there I rest,
Never let me go. No,
Never let me go

What could I learn
By fighting the fire with matches and gasoline.
Oh how cruel
And melodramatic are we,
For trying to make sense
To make sense of all of this.
When I hear you calling
I swear! I swear! I swear I'll run to you!
Just don't let me fall back through the clouds.
(Through the clouds)

Catch me in your arms
Like the stars you hold in your hand.
