Time I've Got Left

from by Crawdad Republic

lyrics

I started out on the trail at a gallop
Been running from things I can’t face
Set on me with bloodhounds who picked up my scent
Soon the horsemen were matching my pace

I followed the river until it ran dry
Made camp ‘til the ember’s last glow
What’s at a man’s back will continue to haunt him
Until he’s got nowhere to go

I can’t explain the promises I’ve never kept
I’m still afraid of losing the time I’ve got left

Held up in a fort made of four flimsy walls
When I heard the search party arrive
A rusty revolver loaded with blanks
And a bandoleer hung at my side

I cocked the hammer, held onto my breath
And I made my move toward the door
There’s nowhere to run when you leave in your wake
Folks behind you to settle a score

I can’t explain the promises I’ve never kept
I’m still afraid of losing the time I’ve got left
Isn’t it strange, how right’s always tough
And the easy road leaves you a wreck
Isn’t it strange I’m losing the time I’ve got left

I laid down my guns and I looked to the east
As I clutched at the wound in my chest
Laid my head down and I watched the daybreak
A casualty just like the rest
