Blues Traveler

This is Latente and his Manfrotto.

 

A Michele con amicizia!

 

Once upon a midnight dearie

I woke with something in my head

I couldnt escape the memory

Of a phone call and of what you said

Like a game show contestant with a parting gift

I could not believe my eyes

When I saw through the voice of a trusted friend

Who needs to humor me and tell me lies

Yeah humor me and tell me lies

And Ill lie too and say I dont mind

And as we seek so shall we find

And when youre feeling open Ill still be here

But not without a certain degree of fear

Of what will be with you and me

I still can see things hopefully

 

But you

Why you wanna give me a run-around

Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up

When all it does is slow me down

 

And shake me and my confidence

About a great many things

But Ive been there I can see it cower

Like a nervous magician waiting in the wings

Of a bad play where the heroes are right

And nobody thinks or expects too much

And hollywoods calling for the movie rights

Singing hey babe lets keep in touch

Hey baby lets keep in touch

But I want more than a touch I want you to reach me

And show me all the things no one else can see

So what you feel becomes mine as well

And soon if were lucky wed be unable to tell

Whats yours and mine the fishings fine

And it doesnt have to rhyme so dont you feed me a line

 

But you

Why you wanna give me a run-around

Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up

When all it does is slow me down

 

Tra la la la la bombardier this is the pilot speaking

And Ive got some news for you

It seems my ship still stands no matter what you drop

And there aint a whole lot that you can do

Oh sure the banner may be torn and the winds gotten colder

Perhaps Ive grown a little cynical

But I know no matter what the waitress brings

I shall drink in and always be full

My cup shall always be full

 

Oh I like coffee

And I like tea

Id like to be able to enter a final plea

I still got this dream that you just cant shake

I love you to the point you can no longer take

Well all right okay

So be that way

I hope and pray

That theres something left to say

 

But you

Why you wanna give me a run-around

Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up

When all it does is slow me down

 

But you

Why you wanna give me a run-around

Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up

When all it does is slow me down

 

(Run Around, Blues Traveler)
