Hudson River Blues (feat Nathan Peter Illes & Ben Shaw)

lyrics

Left my good intentions
Been thrust out of the state
I’ve come to find that home’s a point in time
Not a place

Settled west of the river
Looking for somewhere to hide
Everyone can see me
But no one looks me in the eye

Burnt out on the Hudson
I’m done facing all my fears
I’ve got all the freedom in the world
But it cost a lot up here

Snowed two weeks late last winter
Advised to stay inside
My heart turned as cold as that river
I still haven’t thawed my mind

And memories serve as flights of fancy
At least they don’t take up my time
That’s all spent making money
But I can’t buy what I left behind

Sold my soul for a shelter
Some might say that’s a mistake
No time left for the future
You can’t drink at your own wake

I remember why I came here
But it’s time to travel on
I’ve been moving around so quickly
I forgotten where I belong

Burnt out on the Hudson
I’m done facing all my fears
I’ve got all the freedom in the world
But I’ve lost a lot up here
