– I’m Not There

She came all rightoned and she’s all too tight in my neighborhood
She cried both day and night
I know it because it was there.
It’s a milestone, but she’s down on her luck
And she daily salooning, but to me too hot to book
I would then.

I believe where she’d stop in if she wants time to care
I believe that she’d look upon beside him to care
And I go by the Lord and where she’s on my way, but I don’t belong there.
No I don’t belong to her, I don’t belong to every choir
She’s my prize forsaken angel, but she don’t hear me cry
She’s a long hearted mystic and she can’t carry on
When I’m there she’s alright, but when she’s not when I’m gone.
Heaven knows that the answers she’s don’t calling no one
She’s the way for sailing beautiful
She’s mine for the one
And I lost her attention by tempation as it runs
But she don’t bother me
But I’m not there I’m gone.

Now I’ve cried tonight like I cried the night before
And I’m leased on the high some
But I dream about the door
It’s so long she’s forsaken by a fate with the tale
It don’t hang approximation
She smiled Fare Thee Well.

Now when I’ll treat the way we all was born to love her
But she knows that the kingdom weighs so high above her
And I run but I wait
And it’s not too fast or slam
But I’ll not perceive her
I’m not there I’m gone.

Well it’s all about division
And I cry for a bail
I don’t need anybody now beside me to tell
And it’s all affirmation I received but it’s not
She’s a long haunting beauty
But she’s gone like the spark
And she’s gone.

Yes she’s gone like the rainbow that shined in yesterday
But now she’s home beside me
And I’d like to hear to stay
She’s a bone forsaking beauty and it don’t trust anyone
Now I wish I was beside her but I’m not there I’m gone.

Well it’s too hard to stake in
And I don’t far believe
It’s a bag full it’s amusing
That she’s hard too hard to lead.
It’s a load, it’s a crime
The way she mauled me around
Was she told for to hate me, but just don’t forethink in clown.

Yes I believe that it’s rightful
Oh I believe it in my mind
I been told like I said one night before
Carry on the grind.
And this song gypsy told her like I said carry on
I wish I was there to help her
But I’m not there I’m gone.
