Odd Man Out

lyrics

hey you over there I know who you are
you’ve run all day long, but not very far
you can’t go home, you’re on the run
you’re losing blood fast, and where’s your gun?
you’ll follow me

i know all your friends, they all know me
so come on inside, i’ll pour you a drink
and it’s a shame you can’t stay longer
but your friends, they’re not as strong as your enemies
you know they’re not

i know of a place where you can hide
you’ll see father tom there before you die
and your kathleen, you’ll see her too there
if you can make it – but i can’t carry you all the way
you know i can’t

the snowfall’s begun but the heat is on
police have caught onto your trail of blood
wait over there, behind those shrubs
don’t make a sound I’ll go get father tom and kathleen

the guns have gone off and we pray for your souls
your hearts were both good though perhaps not of gold
and childish things that you had put away
are not forgotten and we’ve learned what faith can really bring
