Child On A Leash

from the album "Mr. Buechner's Dream"

Music by Daniel Amos, Words by T. S. Taylor

I'm asking you why
I never get inside the place
that I belong
Whenever I
Think I've got a hold of you
that's when
You're gone

Chorus:
And I'm feeling like a child on a leash
Theres a hand just outside of my reach
Theres a light on in another room
I'll arrive too late and leave too soon

I just die
Whenever I get sight of you you're
Movin on
I wanna cry
When I think I've got it right
and then it goes
All wrong

Where would I go?
(it's always back to you)
Where would I run?
(it's always back to you)
What would I do?
(it's always back to you)
Forever back to you
Forever back to you
And i'm wondering why

Chorus

I just die
I just die
I just die
I just die
