I Was There (The War on Drugs)

Come on baby, hold me close Let me do my best to both, Let me ride, let it roll I was there to catch a man I thought I had him by the hand I only had him by the glove Come on baby, let me in You can show yourself to him You can show me through the doors And I was there, catching air Thought I had him by the hand I only had him by the glove We was there, in the road Picking diamonds from a tree Heard a wolf coming through Coming through and coming hard, Tried to leave the heat and gone Tried to lean against the wall I'll be there, coming clean Like a runner in the wind Coming through the morning light Rising in, in the stone Tried to leave the heat at home Running through the morning dim And I was there to catch a man, I thought I had him by the hand I only had him by the glove Come on baby, let me close Let me do my best to both Run through but cut close Come on baby, let me in You can show yourself to him Ride the road, ride it rough Yeah in the day I was gone, Tried to leave the heat at home Run through and run the road I was there, coming clean Like a runner in the wind Coming through the morning light You'll be there, on the floor Picking diamonds from a stone Looking through the totem pole
