"Story Of You" lyrics - THE FLATLANDERS

"Story Of You"

I don't think I
Remember when we met
I don't think I
Feel any reason to forget-

The world that's driven you to me
Made my story of you
The time I spent a' tellin' you
That I really love you

Do you know
The place I've made for you?
And do you know
The backstreets I've gone through-

To find that time is not your friend
And what I must uncover
To understand the life you've lived
If life is not your lover?

Let me know
The changes you have made
But I'm alone
And I am not afraid-

To walk this world with anyone
And never walk it cryin'
To live my life with all the world
And never live it lyin'
