Blues Traveler

Traveler Suite

 

 

 

She's all I ever wanted

She could make me alive

I don't think she's dead or anything, but I still feel haunted

Something in the way she said goodbye

This time

 

The night before

It could be me but it seemed like I needn't return

That's right Little Johnny gets to go and fight his war

And as he rides off in the sunset he feels the last ray's burn

And shine

 

The setting sun, though we ain't done

The setting sun, though we ain't done

The only one that makes me run

The setting sun, though we ain't done

 

What the hell did she mean

When she turned away and said "Don't you ever forget me"

And why the sad routine

The tear in her eye, and my big reply

When I said you'd never let me

Oh no, not she

 

I found a letter

I found it in a pocket that she must have slipped it in

It basically told me to forget her

Now I ain't no genius, but I think I could begin

To see

 

The setting sun, though we ain't done

The setting sun, though we ain't done

The only one that makes me run

The setting sun, though we ain't done

 

With the sun obscured from view

And none but the night left to keep me warm

Is it me my darling, there's nothing left to do

But surrender to the coming storm

Where I am born...

 

With nothing to lose, and freedom to gain

I rode west at nightfall through freezing rain

Relying on luck, and the wit of my brain

Visions of plunder and endless campaign

Numb the pain

 

There is comfort in the sun

And the earth is good and soft

Now my sail catch the wind send my chariot aloft

I am rounding all the parapets

As another city burns

Harvest all creation for its ominous return

And then well before dawn

In cover we've gone

 

Moving on to the next after killing my prey

Growing steadily easier each one I'd slay

By blood and by battle, making my way

Onto the breach and into the fray

When I play...

 

There is comfort in the sun

And the earth is good and soft

Now my sail catch the wind send my chariot aloft

I am rounding all the parapets

As another city burns

Harvest all creation for its ominous return

And then well before dawn

In cover we've gone

 

Come Hell, come high water, come into me

Storm bring your flood waters, turn desert to sea

Destroy all my obstacles, whatever they be

Extinguish all light and fell every tree

Set me free!

 

Said a low branch touching the water

Feels the current's take

Said a mighty river bends her

But oh…oh…oh…

But she won't break

Ain't gonna break anytime soon

 

Said a candle's flame she dances

A sudden tempest blows

She dwindles and dims against the cold, cold winds

And oh…oh…oh…

And then she grows, she keeps growin and growin and growin

Somehow, I gotta come and see

Some way, she's familiar to me

Gently, she'd try and try and try

It amazes me

And I gotta find out why

 

Somehow, I gotta come and see

Some way, she's familiar to me

Gently, she'd try and try and try

It amazes me

And I gotta find out why

I…I…I…I…I…

I may never understand her

Her secret is not to know

Nothing for me to do, with or for or to

But oh…oh…oh…

I just love to watch her go

Said I love to watch her go

Gonna watch her go...

 

I am the river that bends the branch

I am the tempest that dwindles the flame

No one can stand the avalanche

The beast can be bargained but he can't be tamed

Balance and equilibrium lost

No one can hold me or alter my fate

The die casts love before the Rubicon crossed

Trying not to move, but momentum won't wait

It's too late...

 

There is comfort in the sun

And the earth is good and soft

Now my sail catch the wind send my chariot aloft

I am rounding all the parapets

As another city burns

Harvest all creation for its ominous return

And then well before dawn

In cover we've gone

 

She's all I ever wanted

Maybe now I'm wanting something more

So we start away, unto the new daylight undaunted

Maybe that is what the dawn is for

But you can't be sure...
