Carson McHone – Poet lyrics
[Verse 1]
Your sleeve cuffs are worn and they're riding up your arm
You whisper words that no one else can hear
And behind your troubled eyes you seem to want the time to stay
But somehow you'll always disappear

[Verse 2]
I don't think it's so much that you're lost
You just don't seem to want to know the way
But with calloused hands you'll keep a hold somehow
To that wind as it's pulling you away

[Chorus]
You won't be back but I won't worry too much, no
You say you've learned to get along
In some ways you just don't got the patience to stay
And in others you're already too far gone
Anyway, I know you won't be back

[Verse 3]
Tell us apart by the lines across your face
That seem to say you've lived the end of many lives
And you do your best to keep up with the leaving souls
So you can sing their last goodbyes

[Chorus]
You won't be back but I won't worry too much, no
You say you've learned to get along
In some ways you just don't got the patience to stay
And in others you're already too far gone
Anyway, I know you won't be back

[Verse 4]
You've been singing past the end of your breath
Pretty soon your feet'll move you right along
And this place'll simply cease to be a memory
You won't remember why you ever stayed so long

[Chorus 2]
You're leaving now and you won't be back, no no
It's just your time to move along
In some ways you just don't got the patience to stay
And in others you've already passed me by
Anyway, I know you won't be back
I just thought I could see you learn to get along
