Run Home Slow

Song lyrics from The Teskey Brothers’ sophomore album Run Home Slow.

 
 

Hold Me

Hold me
Don’t hold me down
Carry me
But keep my feet on the ground

That storm is coming down hard
I’m your shelter every time it starts
But if you leave me, I’ll be moving on
You’ll have a hard time drying
When the fire is gone

I’ll hold ya
I won’t hold ya down
I’ll carry ya
But keep your feet on the ground

You’re the storm and I’m the Murray darling
You keep me going
Every time I’m dry
But if you leave me
I’ll be moving on
But have a hard time running
when the weather is gone

Hold me, don’t hold me down
Carry me, but keep my feet on the ground
I’ll hold ya, I won’t hold ya down
I’ll carry ya, but keep your feet on the ground

In so many ways
I just keep pulling
But you’re pushing me away
Me away

Hold me, don’t hold me down
Carry me, but keep my feet on the ground
I’ll hold ya, I won’t hold ya down
Carry ya, but keep your feet on the ground

Hold me, don’t hold me down
Love me, but don’t let me drown



Man Of the universe

Well I’ve been running since I was child  
Running like a river after the rains have died  
Ain't never had one place to call my home 
Lay my head in a different place unknown  

I wake up early and I wake late 
But I never had time to hesitate  
I pick up my paper and I pick up my bread  
there's room on the road ahead 

I don’t want no country to call my own  
I don’t need one place to call my home  
There ain’t no one place or people are that are better or worse  
I’m a man of the universe  

Like a good strong flowing river that's never been dammed  
Never had to change never had no plan  
To collect too much wealth it’s a curse  
We never had the sense to change, what’s worse 

Never needed no land never need no borders,  
Never needed to stay in one place to count up pennies or quarters  
Never had enough of them to put in my own purse, I'm a man of the universe 

I don’t want no country to call my own  
I don’t need one place to call my home  
There ain’t no one place or people are better or worse 
I’m a man of the universe  
I’m a man of the universe  
I’m not from here I’m from the universe 

SO CAUGHT UP

I’m so caught up
I’m so caught up on you
I’m so caught up
I’m so caught up on you

Even if I tried to change it I can’t
My memory’s caught on you
Even if I try to think of something new I can’t 
They’re all of you

I’m denying the feeling of my mind
The feeling of change
There’s only one thing I can be certain
It’s true
I’m still caught on you

I’m so caught up
I’m so caught up on you
I’m so caught up
I’m so caught up on you

Every time I try to shake it I can’t
It’s impossible to do
Even if I try to break it no I can’t
A broken memory of you
I’ve been to 200 hundred cities and not known where I am 
I’ve walked in the same direction again and again
Oh baby, you making me crazy

You are always on my mind
You are always on my mind

I’m so caught up
I’m so caught up on you
I’m so caught up
I’m so caught up on you
