Song Description

"Escape Artist" is an acoustic ballad in 6/8 sung with beautiful, deep raspy male vocals that rise into heartfelt wailing vocals. It's in a major key, bittersweet and from the heart, a tale of unrequited love of a guy who loves his female friend who is just out of reach.

Story Behind the Song

The song was written about a girl who was simply unattainable, never completely out of reach but would never go away, either.

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
