  1. This song gives me so many emotions, it's one of the few songs I'll just play on repeat over and over all day.

  2. Hey did you hear me, mom?
    Baby's headed home
    Against your wishes
    I went into the woods alone

    [Verse 2]
    Just look at my face
    A vegetable beet red
    I know you gave me money for the motel
    But I came here instead
    I came here instead

    [Verse 3]
    What I wanted when I left you
    Brushed by, so close
    With the money, I got pretty gone
    And bloodied some poor actor's nose

    [Verse 4]
    One night in the park, the pellet gun
    Took out an eye I came undone
    One college kid came to see me
    He passed me that nylon string
    Asked me to play him something
    So I tried my hand at "Blues Run the Game."
    I barely made it through it
    Then he had to go back to his parent's house upstate
    Upstate
    Woke from the dream and I was old
    Staring at the asscrack of dawn
    Walked these streets up and down
    Looking for Paul Simon

    [Verse 6]
    All I found was myself
    Lost in time I tried
    Singing my songs
    But I lost my mind
    What have they done
    With my jealous one?
    Who is gonna talk trash
    Long after I'm gone?
    When I was young
    They used to find me
    Pitching Horseshoe crabs
    Back into the Sun

    [Outro]
    What have they done
    With my jealous one? (x2)
    When I was young
    They used to find me
    Pitching Horseshoe crabs
    Back into the Sun

  3. according to lyric genius, this is "A song from the perspective of American folk singer Jackson C Frank.
    Considered influential, he never achieved much commercial success.
    Shortly into his career, he fell into depression, lost confidence, and
    faded from the music scene and into obscurity. He died, half-blind, of
    pneumonia in 1999, aged 56."

  4. very beautiful voice that will make me fall in love with this album! In the process of checking out the older albums
