GO IT ALONE Sign in or register

 
I'm coming over
See me down at the station by the lane
With my hands in my pocket
Jingling a wish coin that I stole from a fountain
That was drowning all the cares in the world
When I get older
Climbing up on the back porch fence
Just to see the dogs running
With a ring and a question
And my shivering voice is singing through a crack in the window

I better go it alone
I better go it alone

Down on the corner
See me standing on a makeshift road
With the dust storm coming
Long black shadow
Pull a hammer from a coal mine
Down where your daddy was working
Comb my hair back
Strike a match on a bathroom wall where my number is written
Driving on the sidewalk
Looking back as the sky is burning in my rear view mirror

I better go it alone
I better go it alone

I'm coming over
See you down at the station by the lane
With my hands in my pocket
Jingling a wish coin that I stole from a fountain
That was drowning all the cares in the world
When I get older
Climbing up on the back fence moaning
And the dogs that are coming
With a ring and a question
Dime a dozen
And a voice that was singing underneath my window

I better go it alone
I better go it alone
I better go it alone
I better go it alone
I better go it alone

I better go it alone
