kathleen lyrics – david gray

(feat. jolie holland)

lay down my head by the wayside
my worn out shoes
quite why she went i can’t decide
yeah but i sure could use
one plate of food steaming and hot
clean linen ironed
on a fresh made bed but i ain’t got
one salty dime< one salty dime
one salty dime
just close your eyes it won’t take long
it won’t hurt a bit
telling myself i could be strong
or some such brave bullsh*t
trucks are roaring by i’m a red ghost
in their tail light gleam
i’m a tumbleweed< i’m a spit roast
just turning in your flame
oh my darlin’ kathleen
cars they sound like waves that are breaking
on some distant sh*r*
i gazed so hard into the great aching sky
it seemed that i< i wasn’t here no more
that my rushing blood was a river
my eyes two stars
my blowing hair all a quiver
a whispering field of gr*ss
that murmurs as you p*ss
oh my darlin’ kathleen
that whispers out your name
oh my darlin’ kathleen
oh my darlin’ kathleen
