Song Description

Bluesy feel with a killer harmonica player

Story Behind the Song

Building strength after a break-up & moving on

Lyrics


What can you do when you're all unknown
When you're lost and you're weary and you feel all alone
You've been wandering so long that you're all skin and bone
You took the wrong path, baby, now you can't come home

How do you care when your caring is through
When you've run yourself ragged when you've cried yourself blue
When you just keep on running but you don't know where to
I took the wrong path, baby, I can't come home to you

What do you do? What do you say?
When you don't know why you're running, you're just running away
And day follows night sure as night follows day
You just keep on running keep your fears at bay

Who do you trust when your trust has been broken?
To speak your truth when a lie has been spoken
To hold somebody when your heart's been harmed
How do you hold somebody in your arms?

How can I be now that I'm all alone
How can I taste that sweetness now your sweetness is gone?
I lost so much I've got nothing to lose
But you're running on empty when you're running with the blues

What do you do? What do you say?
When you don't know why you're running, you're just running away
And day follows night as sure as night follows day
You just keep on running keep your fears at bay
