Richard Thompson — Keep Your Distance lyrics

If I cross your path again
Who knows here, who knows when
On some morning without number
On some highway without end
Don't grasp my hand and say
Fate has brought you here today
Fate is only fooling with us, friend
Keep your distance
Keep your distance
When I feel you close to me
What can I do but fall
Keep your distance
Keep your distance
With us it must be all or none at all
It's a desperate game we play
Throw our souls, our lives away
Wounds that can't be mended
And debts that can't be paid
O I played and I got stung
Now I'm biting back my tongue
And I'm sweeping out the footprints
Where I strayed
[ Lyrics from: ]
