YOU'VE GOT A WARRANT

(OUT ON MY AFFECTION)

You’ve got a warrant out on my affection

Got me all tied up inside

But I might just run forever

Cause I’m just starting to catch my stride

 

I only feel the heat on the pavement

When I’m barefoot on the street

And sometimes when we’re together

I get blisters on my feet

 

Though there’s not a fight in sight

I still keep my powder dry

‘Cause love can only keep me on the run

I promise that I’ll hold you tight

But promise me you’ll dry your eyes

‘Cause I’ll be gone before the morning comes

 

And the times when you flew solo

Through the canyons of my mind

Are the times I best remember

When I’m out there flying blind

 

Though there’s not a fight in sight

I still keep my powder dry

‘Cause love can only keep me on the run

I promise that I’ll hold you tight

But promise me you’ll dry your eyes

‘Cause I’ll be gone before the morning comes

 

And when the windshield wipers

And the radio keep time

To and AM station’s waltzes

Could anything be more sublime

 

I may never get it right

I don’t care how yard I try

So someone tell me when we’re having fun

I promise that I’ll hold you tight

But promise me you’ll dry your eyes

‘Cause I’ll be gone before the morning comes

"There's a lotta things about me you don't know anything about, Dottie. Things you wouldn't understand. Things you couldn't understand. Things you shouldn't understand.

   ...   

"You don't wanna get mixed up with a guy like me. I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel.

 

"So long, Dott."
