When I Was a Writer

Matt Wilson & his Orchestra

Lyrics

When I was a writer, all the words just came to me

Little birds explained to me, this is how it sounds

And you were a low one, something that might blow past me

Did I notice? Don't ask me, you were on the ground

Have I fallen fast? Lost my place at last? Am I taken down?

Have I lost my place back in town?

Spinning down below where the rivers go and the times unwind.

I've been dropping from the clouds forever and it breaks my mind.

For now I'm a no one. Can I get some drinks for you?

Maybe I should sing for you? Shall I play the clown?

Have I fallen fast? Lost my place at last?

As I cast around for the word that's worth writing down?

Shadow from above, someone that I love falling hard behind.

I've been dropping from the clouds forever and it breaks my mind.

Have I lost my place back in town?

Spinning down below where the rivers go and the times unwind.

I've been dropping from the clouds forever and it breaks my mind.

I've been dropping from the clouds forever and it breaks my mind.

I've been dropping from the clouds forever and it breaks my mind.

I've been dropping from the clouds forever and it breaks my mind.

For every mood
