Apart From Me Lyrics

by Avett Brothers

I was scared but I couldn't admit it
Hatred planted out of fear
Fight or flight no choice but to hit it
The road, it calls on me my dear

I was lost as lost can be
Being praised for being found
But all that praise got lost on me
as the mood swing was headed down

Part from me
I would not dare take someone in love with me where I'm going
Apart you'll see how true it is and how back then
it possibly was impossible for you or me to know it

Your touch was nothing more than a child's goodbye and hello
But it always left me feeling worse when it was time to go

Part from me
I would not dare take someone in love with me where I'm going
Apart you'll see how true it is and how back then
it possibly was impossible for you or me to know it

And most of us out there got fooled as the gold, it glittered in the night
And we chased it fast like drunk buffoons
The banker lived, the artist died
And all our clothes were washed in grey
All our buildings and our cars
And the florescent lights of day bleached the sky and took the stars

Part from me
I would not dare take someone in love with me where I'm going
Apart you'll see how true it is and how back then
it possibly was impossible for you or me to know it
