Indigo Girls - Fugitive Lyrics

I'm harboring a fugitive, a defector of a kind
And she lives in my soul and drinks of my wine
And I'd give my last breath to keep us alive
Are they coming for us with cameras or guns?
We don't know which but we gotta run
And you say, "This is not what I bargained for"

So hide yourself
For me
All for me

We swore to ourselves we'd go to the end of the world
But I got caught up in the whirl and the twirl of it all
A day in the sun dancing alone
Baby, I'm so sorry
Now it's coming to you the lessons I've learned
Won't do you any good you've got to get burned
Well the curse and the blessing they're one in the same
Baby, it's all such a treacherous gain

Hide yourself from me
I said hide yourself from me
All for me

Ooh!
Ooh!

I stood without clothes danced in the sand
I was aching with freedom kissing the damned
I said remember this as how it should be
Oh baby, I said it's all in our hands
Got to learn to respect what we don't understand
We are fortunate ones, fortunate ones, I swear

Hide yourself for me
I will hide myself for you
All for you
All for you
I will myself for you
All for you

I stood without clothes I danced in the sand
I was aching with freedom kissing the damned
I said remember this as how it should be
