Run Back Hymn

 

all my life
speaking in tongues
speaking in tongues
around the fires
around the men
who were not initiate
who were infinite
but cold

all my life
all my life
in my shoes
knocking on your door
can you hear my tap dance?
Katie, would you come to answer?
Sally, would you run with me?
ohmylord, no
ohmylord, nono.

sing brother
preach sister, preach.
tell them I’m coming home
big suit and carpet bag
over my shoulder, you’ll come running.
I can see it now, your pretty Sunday dress
kicking in the wind
dusty to your knees
lifting to the sky
flying with me, come in a dream to say
I’ll fly with you
I’ll fly away with you
