The Longer I Run
Peter Bradley Adams Lyrics


When my blood runs warm
With the warm red wine
I miss the life that I left behind
But when I hear the sound of the blackbirds cry
I know I left in the nick of time

Well, this road I'm on is gonna turn to sand
And leave me lost in a far-off land
So let me ride the wind till I don't look back
Forget the life that I almost had

If I wonder till I die
May I know who's hand I'm in?
If my home I'll never find
And let me live again

The longer I run
Then the less that I find
Sellin' my soul for a nickel and dime
Breakin' my heart to keep singing these rhymes
And losin' again

The longer I run
Then the less that I find
Sellin' my soul for a nickel and dime
Breakin' my heart to keep singing these rhymes
And losin' again

Tell my brother
Please, not to look for me
I ain't the man that I used to be
But if my savior comes, could you let him know?
I've gone away for to save my soul

If I wonder till I die
May I know who's hand I'm in?
If my home I'll never find
And let me live again

The longer I run
Then the less that I find
Sellin' my soul for a nickel and dime
Breakin' my heart to keep singing these rhymes
And losin' again

The longer I run
Then the less that I find
Sellin' my soul for a nickel and dime
Breakin' my heart to keep singing these rhymes
And losin' again

Losing again

The longer I run
I'm losing again
Losing again

When my blood runs warm with the warm red wine
I miss the life that I left behind
But when I hear the sound of the blackbirds cry
I know I left in the nick of time

Well this road I'm on's gonna turn to sand
And leave me lost in a far off land
So let me ride the wind til I don't look back
Forget the life that I almost had

If I wander til I die
May I know who's hand I'm in
If my home I'll never find
And let me live again

The longer I run
Then the less that I find
Sellin my soul for a nickel and dime
Breakin my heart to keep singing these rhymes
And losin again

The longer I run
Then the less that I find
Sellin my soul for a nickel and dime
Breakin my heart to keep singing these rhymes
And losin again

Tell my brother please not to look for me
I ain't the man that I used to be
But if my savior comes could you let him know
I've gone away for to save my soul

If I wander til I die
May I know who's hand I'm in
If my home I'll never find
And let me live again

The longer I run
Then the less that I find
Sellin my soul for a nickel and dime
Breakin my heart to keep singing these rhymes
And losin again

The longer I run
Then the less that I find
Sellin my soul for a nickel and dime
Breakin my heart to keep singing these rhymes
And losin again

Losing again

The longer I run
I'm losing again
Losing again

The picture reminds me of my home and the song takes me back to just walking around the creeks and springs in the back woods. Way before the drama of life.

His music soothes the soul and warms the heart. But at the same time its depressing but it's so freaking good. I can't stop myself!

Eltjo Haselhoff

Just the instrumental intro of this song is worth the price of the entire album.
