Tom Prasada-Rao: songs

Out of My System

(tom prasada-rao)
TPR, Tom Kimmel, & Michael Lille
Michael and I were playing guitars in Tom Kimmels' old living room. We we're sketching the song out, grooving to the changes - then Tom walked in from the kitchen. "What you working on fellas?" A song was soon born ...
I go out walking and you follow me
I feel your shadow at my back
you’re supposed to be a memory
but no one’s satisfied with that
you left to find another life
on another coast you disappear
and I’m still here living with your ghost

I concede impossibility
but I guess I fell too far
I can say this hurt don’t bother me
but I can’t conceal the scars
I know better but my heart just won’t listen
cause I can’t get you out of my system

I hear you breathing when I close my eyes
I see you leaving on the train
I hear your laughter on the street outside
I see you dancing in the rain
time should bring and end to things
but we go on and on
I should be back on my feet
but I’m not that strong

I concede impossiblity
but I guess I fell too far
I can say this hurt don’t bother me
but I can’t conceal the scars
I know better but my heart just won’t listen
cause I can’t get you out of my system

I’m not saying I’m not crazy
I’ve been that from the start
but I can’t see how let you go
when I’m still right here in the dark

time should bring and end to things
but we go on and on
I should be back on my feet
but I’m not that strong

I concede impossibility
but I guess I fell too far
I can say this hurt don’t bother me
but I can’t conceal the scars
I know better but my heart just won’t listen
cause I can’t get you out of my system
