lyrics

If I ever hit you child
If I ever made you sit outside
I can't always be divine
I have been walking on the wire

If I ever stole and lied
If I ever broke you when you tried
I can't always be divine
I have been walking on the wire

So when your walls come down
and all the people with their flowers
lift you up into the clouds
you'll just smile...


If you chase me, I'll run
I'll run into the darkness or the fire, I won't run forever
But I'll run a long time

Force me into a fight
I'll come at you like the sunlight hits the water I won't fight forever
But I'll fight with my life
If you chase me, I'll run

I was a picture of a boy
Always trapped behind the glass on the wall
Always accepting my award with a smile
Yeah, I was there for a while

Now I'm the ball that got thrown
Always kicked down the road
I'm always dirty I always feel so strange
And then I'm washed by the rain

And If you chase me, I'll run
I'll run into the darkness or the fire, I won't run forever
But I'll run a long time

Force me into a fight
I'll come at you like the sunlight hits the water I won't fight forever
But I'll fight with my life

If you held out your hand
I'd hold it in the soft hard-headed way that nothing lasts forever
But just as long as it can
If you held out your hand

I'm turning into the rays
that stall out at the end of the day
oh, green flash from the sun
send me back to the field
to be born I'll grow legs
I will run

about

James Wallace and the Naked Light Nashville, Tennessee

Once, in an abandoned house, I found a tape of Black Gospel music pirated from a station out of Greensboro in 1967. Like a child of the middle class, I wrote down how it felt. Now we're six or seven together, and loud enough.
