rain on the window falling steady and slow a room more like a tomb than a place to call home a song playing softly floats from the radio and I feel pain each note a flame burning down the road I came where weeping willows hung Kathrine looked far from young with salt I have sown in all I have known so and so I'm nowhere

leaning in the doorway at the dark end of the day listening to crows call picking wheat inside the rain scarecrow looks to friendly to frighten them away they gather round weight him down crooked face bowed to the ground I too am leaning low and I'm damned if I don't feel more alone than I've ever known so and so I'm nowhere

you told me not to darken your door if I returned summer sun was hanging on by threads that burned shadow fell on your face scarlet lips unsure of what words to sound to strike me down your silent silhouette I found round each turn of the road when I ran it followed now it's got my cornered and in my bones I know I know I'm nowhere

oh but I won't be returning to anything I've known can't comb the past for artifacts and re-earth broken broken bones when will the dust settle when with petals unfold so I can't stand right where I am without your ghost or crows that land round me black as coal the calling of the crow seems to be sung for those on the run it goes it goes I'm nowhere

but I don't mind the rain I find it finer than when dry sit behind the window with a cup of whiskey rye no cars on the highway an old scarecrow outside leaning back and forth wind from the north whispering winter I'm shore the leaves are falling down the field is turning brown Kathrine all I can say I found is this is this I'm nowhere

so the sun goes drowning down below the field and then it will be sometime before it's light hits me again music only plays to remind me of my friends and you Kathrine can I make amends eyes of night Katie to her friends the cold and the wind blow outside and within the sky colored ash I'm looking back into the past from nowhere
