lyrics

If you follow me
I will show you the place where in my memory where I want to be
The rest of me is there
Where the sorrel spreads
On the hems of your streets

If you follow me
You will see all the reasons never mattered
The wandering year
Woven into and out of the image
Like a climbing plant
That reaches back toward a single end

You can’t escape this inevitable conclusion
Now that I am awake and my head is filled
You can’t escape this inevitable conclusion
I know what I need, and I hope you need it too
You can’t escape this inevitable conclusion
I’ve been waiting for so long for a truth I knew but wouldn’t say
You can’t escape this inevitable conclusion
I can’t escape this inevitable conclusion

If you follow me
I will take you in my arms, lift your worry from the presence of your skin
The rest of you is gone
Your eyes say it all
And the reasons linger on

Well I never felt I belonged
Out of sync and out of place with existence
But I don’t want to stay
Asleep on the back of a distance that I never made
Leads me back to the conclusion that you are what I need

You can’t escape this inevitable conclusion
Now that I am awake and my head is filled
You can’t escape this inevitable conclusion
I know what I need, and I hope you need it too
You can’t escape this inevitable conclusion
I’ve been waiting for so long for what I knew and wouldn’t say
You can’t escape this inevitable conclusion
I can’t escape the truth

That I am coming home to you
Yes I see it clearly
You don’t have to wait any longer for the end of my sorrow

Yes I am coming home
It’s too much to bear
My head carried by my feet
But the rest of me is already there

Where the rain hits your yard
The sorrel grows on your street
Deeper than memory
I’m coming home to you

You can’t escape this inevitable conclusion
I know what I need, and I know you need it too
You can’t escape this inevitable conclusion
I’ve been waiting for so long for what I knew but wouldn’t say
You can’t escape this inevitable conclusion
I can’t escape this inevitable conclusion

But you tell me I repeat the same song
That I can’t recover what is lost
Or thrown to the sea

You tell me this won’t be my home
That it’s been a troubled year
I belong to nowhere and nothing
But you could follow me
