The Vagabond

@ 2012 Craig Carothers/Steve Nelson

I've been the liar, I've been the lie,
I've been the junkie, I've been the high
I've been the genius, I've been the fool, I've been the outlaw, I've been the rule

I've been the grifter, I've been the con
I've been the king,
And I've been the pawn
But that's the life of the vagabond.

I've been the freight train, I've been the track, I've been the tight rope,
I've been the slack
I've been the juggler, I've been the pin, I've been the scalpel, I've been the skin

I've been the headlights,
I've been the deer
I've been the blindfold,
I've been the mirror
But I never would've dreamed
I'd end up here... on a...

A Steady course with even keel...
where you...
Don't have to reinvent the wheel
Not if you've got something real
I love the way your love makes me feel
I love the way your love makes me feel

I've been the heartstrings,
I've been the pull,
I've been the cape,
I've been the bull
I've been the castle,
I've been the moat,
I been all three people in the
"Dear John" note

I've been the panther,
I've been the prey
I've been the sculptor,
I've been the clay
and it took this long to find my way... to a ...

Steady course with even keel...
where you...
Don't have to reinvent the wheel
Not if you've got something real
I love the way your love makes me feel

A little rough water's no big deal
That's nothin' that time won't heal
Not when you've got something real
I love the way your love makes me feel
I love the way your love makes me feel
