Song Description

"Escape Artist" is a slow acoustic ballad in 6/8 time driven by a gentle acoustic strum, sung with a delicate baritone of breathy, raspy male vocals that rise to a passionate falsetto. Beautiful lead acoustic guitar and accordion garnish the song along to its climax in the middle with a gentle resolution at the end back to its original feel of serenity. The song evokes a deep expression of longing and desire for someone who is just out of reach.

Story Behind the Song

The song was written about a man who is in love with a woman who is always in and out of his life, a woman who has always just been a friend and nothing more, gracing her presence just long enough to get him hooked and then disappearing when he needs her most, driving him to the edges of sanity.

Lyrics

Tried so hard to find my way
On that cold bitter day
And my mind was so frozen that I hardly knew what to say

Once I had a friend I loved so dear
But she gone and run away
And I cried so hard, yeah I cried and my sorrow did stay

Youre always coming and agoing as you please, babe
Yeah you never give me warning, and you always got me on my knees, babe

Wasnt really sure why I hung around
Guess Im just a fool for your face
Dont you know if I could Id forget you, yeah Id bury you away

Once I had a friend, I tracked her down
But I didnt know what to say
And I stared for awhile, and I blew it and she left me on my way

Youre always coming and agoing as you please, babe
Yeah you never give me warning, and you always got me on my knees, babe
Im always chasing after ghosts to get to you, baby blue
Yeah you always leave me hanging and you wear me and you tear me down with ease, babe

I dont mind taking a bullet once and awhile,
Its the waiting around thats gonna kill me, thats gonna put me underground

Youre always coming and agoing as you please, babe
Yeah you never give me warning, and you always got me on my knees, babe
Im always chasing after ghosts to get to you, baby blue
Yeah you always leave me hanging and you wear me and you tear me down with ease, babe
