Fugitive
David Gray Lyrics


Yeah yeah

Is the answer none of the above
Crouched in a whole like a mud-streaked fugitive
And everyday a different version of
Pourin' it away like a water through a sieve

Hey better realize my friend
Love in the end now you can't take it well
Gotta live

If only for a second
I see a twinklin' in your eye
Gotta try

Well its flesh and blood and camouflage
Paint it to the wall now somethings gotta give
Just another right to sabotage
Seein' through the eyes of a mind-rot sedative

When will you realize my friend
Love in the end now you can't take it well
Gotta live

If only for a second
I see a twinklin' in your eye
Gotta try
The one that you're forsaken
Surely more than just a lie
Yeah

When will you realize my friend
Love in the end now you can't take it well
Gotta live

If only for a second
I see a twinklin' in your eye
Gotta try
The one that you're forsaken
Surely more than just a lie
Gotta try
It's for the taken
And you know not to testify
Gotta try
Everyday is a different version of

I have no problem saying that David Gray is one of the greatest singer/songwriters living. He ranks up there with Bob Dylan for me. His music has soul, meaning and emotion. Love it. The man is pure class

Andy Curtin

Yep, he's one of my heroes alright

mark price

I think the best thing is he's not a one or two album wonder-hell,he keeps popping out albums faster than I can buy them and they are all keepers. Dylan made me buy tons of his music and he couldn't even sing. This guy can do it all ,write,sing,play-just do it all.

Tim Heathfield

So rite Mick the man's a genius with his song writing up there with the best .

Martin Cook

Doesn’t matter what year we are in. This will always be one of the best songs ever recorded! 😉

It's sad that David Gray seems to be so widely overlooked nowadays. One of the greatest musicians and songwriters the world's ever known.

Loved this song since I heard it on my Blackberry back in 2009. If this song came out today, it would hit top charts!

Terrap0b _ps

I had it on my blackberry device too! What a coincidence!

Jare Roken

This is one of my absolute favourite songs. I find it really melancholic but brilliant.
The message of the song according to David Gray is basically that you can't hide from life.

Cory Wells

I saw him in Boston last week. Absolutely incredible! It was a wonderful experience that I won't forget!
