Blues Traveler – After What lyrics
And if I take a different tack
Well then forgive me if the long way around confuses up the point until you're numb enough to hear
That you're using the anointing oil like it's sacramental beer
And don't blame heaven or hell
You have to look to yourself
And nobody else will lift a light to make you see
Don't got to learn a damn thing
Part of being free
And I realize when I buck my place, it's my feet but it's their race
And I don't run unless you try to chase me
And I don't leave unless you offer me a stay
And I won't fight unless I'm cornered or if I'm after what I want
What that is I wish that I could say

So forgive me or forget you if you think you cannot bear
Believe me life won't let you if you blink you shall not fare
But should you get the chance, try to make for the fence
It's a subtle dance we do to stay in from the cold
And the cleverest ones get to be real old
I may struggle, I may complain
But I'm just trying to grab at the reins
And I don't run unless you try to chase me
And I don't leave until you offer me a stay
And I don't fight unless I'm cornered or if I'm after what I want
What that is I wish that I could say

I don't run unless you try to chase me
And I don't leave until you offer me a stay
And I don't fight unless I'm cornered or if I'm after what I want
What that is I wish that I could say
And if I'm wondering where to go well then forgive me if I don't know
