Cat Power – Against the Wind Lyrics

Cat Power Against the Wind Lyrics

It seemed like yesterday
But it was so long ago, long ago
Jimmy was lovely, was the king of my nights
And the darkness with the radio playin’ low
The secrets that we shared, the mountains that we moved
Caught like wildfire

Against the wind
We were running against the wind
We were running against the wind

The years rolled out, I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends
It took all I own
Found myself running from my home
Guess I lost my way
Oh, there were so many roads
I was livin’ to run and running to live

Against the wind
Against the wind
We were young and strong
And always on the run
Against the wind

Movin’ 8 miles a minute for months at a time
Breakin’ all the rules that would bend
I found myself searching for shelter again

Against the wind
Against the wind
And we were running again and again

And we’re young and strong
I’m a little older now, but I’m still running
Against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind

We’re young and strong
Again, against the wind
