Chasing Shadows

Santigold

360, five left, I'm counting it to the day
I'm thinking if I did everything I've said or if the year got the best of me
One thing about time, it waits for nobody, you told me, isn't that what they say
Been batting 'gainst it and getting nowhere
Just racin' got nothin' to say to nobody

Little lady, you better get in line, now I'm talking this to myself
Better get in on down with the program, don't sell your lot for an old broke dream they been sellin' ya
Free fallin' like Tom Petty waitin' on his rodeo too haul
I break my own rules, steal my way home and guard the still there like a beast

We race the globe
The shakers and the fools
We trouble, you know
You'll find us where we fall, we chasing shadows
We race the globe (And I can't have it, have it any other way)
The shakers and the fools (And I can't have it, have it any other way)
We trouble, you know (I'm not gon' have it, have it any other way)
You'll find us where we fall, we chasing shadows (And I can't have it, have it any other way)

Always knew I'd be international, no fear of flyin'
Limousines, big people, their parties, but I'm on an island
Watching through a window, the flashing light on the bed
Neon sign goes red "You are here" it says
Well, at least someone knows where I am

Maybe I will get it wrong, no patience for myself
Selling years of ideas 'til I'm old, a living on the shelf
I won't follow, I'm taking the long way, my standards hold me up
Why they eating they idols up? Now, why they eatin' they idols up? Damnit
I give 'em my heart in words, will they remember me?
I'll leave 'em alone and time'll want to smother what I say
I round another year and wonder did I go someplace
I'm bucking this one down, this one right here won't walk away

We race the globe
The shakers and the fools
We trouble, you know
You'll find us where we fall, we chasing shadows
We race the globe (And I can't have it, have it any other way)
The shakers and the fools (And I can't have it, have it any other way)
We trouble, you know (I'm not gon' have it, have it any other way)
You'll find us where we fall, we chasing shadows (And I can't have it, have it any other way)

Always knew I'd be international, no fear of flyin'
Limousines, big people, their parties, but I'm on an island
Watching through a window, the flashing light on the bed
Neon sign goes red: You are here, it says
Well, at least someone knows where I am

You are here, it says
Well, at least someone knows where I am
