I got some new shoes, I’m walking
Out here where the swamp is my friend
And maybe, just maybe I’m drowning
Caught in the reeds once again

You were a long time coming
You were a long time coming up
It didn’t take long to break a bond
You know you set if off

I said that you can’t always get a man to come back
He never came back
I just drift here along with the deadwood

Sometimes the half-light is blinding
My ghost, their eyes cannot see

You were a long time coming
You were a long time coming up
It didn’t take long to break a bond
You know you set if off

I said that you can’t always get a man to come back
He never came back
I just drift here in tide with the deadwood

I want you
I need you
I want you
Oh yeah
