“Well, I fool myself and I don’t know why. I thought we could ride this out.”
We’ve got to get to a higher place, and we gotta leave by night.
Before that river takes us down, we gotta find some place that’s dry.
We gotta run like we’ve never run, or we’re gonna lose the light.
If we don’t get to a higher place and find somebody, can help somebody, might be nobody no more.
Well, I fool myself and I don’t know why
I thought we could ride this out
I was up all night making up my mind
But now I’ve got my doubts
I got my eye on the waterline
Trying to keep my sense of humor
I remember walking with her in town; her hair was in the wind.
I gave her my best kiss; she gave it back again.
When I add up what I’ve left behind, I don’t want to lose no more
