The Race Is On

from by Blacks&



You can't afford my love
It's on fire
I don't give it away

Hung my love to be
From the hollow tree
So she'll always be
A ghost that follows me
Follow me?

It's my way or the highway
Or the freeway
It's up to you babe
I don't want to lead you on
Like "I'm the moon" and
"You're the sun"
Won't chase it if you run
I'm not the one
Cause I've been to Cairo
I've been to Skid Row
I've chased a diamond
Down a rabbit hole
This blank expression
Is all that's left
And it keeps me searching
with a Heart of Coal

The Race is On

You run to me
I run from you
Baby girl,
It's the least that I could do

If anything becomes of me
If anyone still cares about
If anywhere my love still grows
Then it will be for no one special
Someone nobody knows
I could be your "any other way"
Let you have me every other day
Eating what it throws away
Let's chase the feeling
Til it goes away
I know the way

While Donald Eley and Tiger passed instruments back and forth, vagabond (and spiritual guide) Jutty Shark gave the tracks a Midas sheen. The group has rounded out its rhythm section by bringing on Jutty's childhood friend Jules Bellin. ... more
