Pass Me By

Words and Music Willi Brown ©1992

Acoustic Demo version from Seattle ’96

Moving on leaving all your books behind
pages falling from what I need
Forgot whatever I wanted to find,
won’t remember what I once believed

Willi Brown in straw hat holding up a joker card.
RMDC Summer 2013

I’ll create my own confusion
get my legend with room to spare
I pray for patience and something old
to help me driver to get back there

*Pass me by I’ve forgotten the way
Go on ahead, you know the night will stay
No one can help me – don’t even try
Go on ahead and pass me by

No comfort of familiar nightmares
can hold my wishes back down inside
Tell my story for me… after I’m gone
Those questions of right and wrong … let ’em ride

I’ll take this the wrong way
It’s happened before (“I didn’t touch a thing”)
I’m always hopin’ the night will stay
Like a bird of prey with a broken wing

Surrender all my expressions of love… with my pride
A gift to leave back down by the gate of our lives

*Pass me by I’ve forgotten the way
Go on ahead, you know the night will stay
No one can help me – don’t even try
Go on ahead and pass me by
