Poet, songwriter, musician. Tom Waits.
Music and words – a perfect pairing.
And if I have to go will you remember me?
Or will you find someone else while I’m away?
There’s nothing for me in this world full of strangers;
it’s all someone else’s idea.
I don’t belong here and you can’t go with me.
You’ll only slow me down.
Until I send for you, don’t wear your hair that way.
If you cannot be true I’ll understand.
Tell all the others you hold in your arms,
I said I’d come back for you.
I’ll leave my jacket to keep you warm.
That’s all that I can do.
