Somewhere They Can't Find Me

ŠPaul Simon, released on Sounds of Silence (Simon and Garfunkel) 1965

.

I can hear the soft breathing of the girl that I love,

As she lies here beside me asleep with the night.

Her hair in a fine mist floats on my pillow,

Reflecting the glow of the winter moonlight.

.

But I've got to creep down the alley way,

Fly down the highway,

Before they come to catch me I'll be gone.

Somewhere they can't find me.

.

Oh baby, you don't know what I've done,

I've committed a crime, I've broken the law.

While you were here sleeping and just dreaming of me,

I held up and robbed a liquor store.

.

But I've got to creep down the alley way,

Fly down the highway,

Before they come to catch me I'll be gone.

Somewhere they can't find me.

.

Oh my life seems unreal, my crime an illusion,

A scene badly written in which I must play.

And thought it puts me up tight to leave you,

I know it's not right to leave you,

When morning is just a few hours away.

.

But I've got to creep down the alley way,

Fly down the highway,

Before they come to catch me I'll be gone.

Somewhere they can't find me.
