Drifter – Zelena Hull


Drifter

 

A heartfelt acoustic song about the difficulties of life that’s constantly moving too fast to even feel. Drifter emphasis it’s emotional core with imagery of living on the road and never really being any place too long. You might see people but never get to know them. This song uses a lone acoustic guitar and staggering drums and then climaxes with a grand synth string finale.

Lyrics:

Striking twice just like a lighting bolt
Only so many places you can go
Can’t escape this feeling of a drifter
And this feeling will stay long after

Run baby run run into the sun
Cause life ain’t the way we have fun
Life on the road always the road
The same old yellow line

Cause I’m a drifter my heart won’t be here
But this feeling will stay long after
Cause I’m a drifter my heart won’t be here
But this feeling will stay long afterter

Same miles ahead as I’ve put behind me
Those without a care will learn their way
In this system we call life, we all gotta pay to play

Taking a gamble by the skin of my knee
This ain’t the place that I though I’d be
A touch a quiver nothing more,
Except the wind on my face

Cause I’m a drifter my heart won’t be here
But this feeling will stay long after
Cause I’m a drifter my heart won’t be here
But this feeling will stay long after

Cause I’m a drifter
