Jared's Blues

from by Idan Rabinovici

lyrics

a train going east whispers a dusty song
hot gusts of air 'bout how I've been done wrong
and my eyelids are sandy, and bring me to tears
while an old broken steel-string tells of my childhood years

the airplane forgotten, a nameless dream
a nomad's shelter is all that I've seen
and her face is now blurry, lost in this time
but not as distorted and misplaced as mine

babe you know I miss you all the time
but it's high time I find what's mine
i know I don't say much anymore
so feel free to leave
and leave me the key by the door

in the desert dunes I fell down on my face
while breathless, and sweaty, I peered into space
i went crazy, then came back, and called out your name
wandering for hours till sundown came

i bled on the train looking for my traveler's refrain
while heading on east, in search for my fame
i thought I'd find something to call my own
instead of wandering forever in search for a home

babe you know I miss you all the time
but it's high time I find what's mine
i know I don't say much anymore
so feel free to leave
and leave me the key by the door
