Ian Hunter – You Nearly Did Me In Lyrics

(ian hunter)
See lonely shadows – silver needles
Abandoned in the evening war
Lost children of the night – come catch the candle bright
I hear a hollow sound – falling to the ground – she’s lost before she’s found
Sad broken angels takin’ rainbows
Out on the street for all to see
If we are the chosen few – what ever happened to
All those things we knew, if this is being free –
I’d rather search for me
Chorus
You nearly did, you nearly did, you nearly did
You nearly did me in, you nearly did me in
And I need some place to hide – my weary anger down
Out on some misty distant highway
Feel like I though a million miles
Is my search nearly done – I think I see someone
I get the urge to run on blindly through the rain,
And I fool myself again
Chorus
What ever happened to dignity
What ever happened to integrity
What ever happened to honesty
Well I’ll tell you something baby – I feel the pain just like the sea
Chorus
