you nearly did me in lyrics – ian hunter

(ian hunter)

see lonely shadows – silver needles
abandoned in the evening war
lost children of the night – come catch the candle bright
i hear a hollow sound – falling to the ground – she’s lost before she’s found

sad broken angels takin’ rainbows
out on the street for all to see
if we are the chosen few – what ever happened to
all those things we knew, if this is being free –
i’d rather search for me


you nearly did, you nearly did, you nearly did
you nearly did me in, you nearly did me in
and i need some place to hide – my weary anger down

out on some misty distant highway
feel like i though a million miles
is my search nearly done – i think i see someone
i get the urge to run on blindly through the rain,
and i fool myself again


what ever happened to dignity
what ever happened to integrity
what ever happened to honesty
well i’ll tell you something baby – i feel the pain just like the sea
