lifeblood: songs: lyrics: sober girl


i'm a sober girl
not for any good reason
i found myself on this road i'm on
it felt a lot like treason
to my last girlfriends
who could never understand
when it comes to love
i wanted purity

i felt the loneliness of the world
in the city so i got out of there
i found myself at the end of a long dirt road
it felt a lot like nowhere
to my last girlfriends
who could never understand
when it comes to life
i wanted purity

when i was young
(when i was young)
in every camptown song i sung
(every song i song)
i was aching just to be
(i longed to be)
with someone
(with someone)
who could lay me down where the rivers run
(where the rivers run)
who was able
(with someone free)
who was free

free of this manmade world
and all the bargains we made with fear
that slowly whittle us down to nothing
it felt a lot like despair
but i found someone
who was still standing when it was done
and with the purest heart
she said these words to me

when i was young
in every camptown song i sung
i was aching just to be
with someone
(with someone)
who could lay me down where the rivers run
(where the rivers run)
who was able
(with someone free)
who was free
