Lyrics

Bags in tow under my eyes. I've seen the highest lows and lowest highs.
I went past shallow hills and a valley deep just to find you livin down the street.
Oh the stopping lights and the docking yards, under the satellites and the dying stars.
I went over fields and a rocky beach just to find you livin down the street. Just to find you livin down the street.
Now when I holler, he comes runnin. Oh my baby keeps me comin.
He gives me what I don’t know that I need.
You see every time I would chase the wind I’d only find your face again.
So I’ll lose my shoes and rest my tired feet.
And I find that you been livin down the street.

Gravel voice and pavement roads. I heard some empty noise from the noisy shows.
I followed love on hollow leads just to find you livin down the street.
I took some bitter drinks from fruitless vines, all the jagged brinks and stony climbs.
The beating drum had got me beat and I found you livin down the street. I just found you livin down the street.
Now when I holler, he comes runnin. Oh my baby keeps me comin.
He gives me what I don’t know that I need.
You see every time I would chase the wind I’d only find your face again.
So I’ll lose my shoes and rest my tired feet.
And I find that you been livin down the street.

Through alley ways and Raleigh haze, I was searchin for some brighter days
And someone I could be someone to.
Through dead canals and live corrals and old-time men and good time gals,
I wondered til my wonderin was through. And I happened to happen onto you.

Bags in hand and ragged skies. I saw some golden bands and broken ties.
I took careless rides at breakneck speeds just to find you livin down the street.
Faulty starts make happy endings, and hardened hearts take hearty mending.
Now to the wind I must concede. I found you livin down the street. I just found you livin down the street.
Now when I holler, he comes runnin. Oh my baby keeps me comin.
He gives me what I don’t know that I need.
You see every time I would chase the wind I’d only find your face again.
So I’ll lose my shoes and rest my tired feet.
And I find that you been livin down the street.
