The Decemberists - The Bagman's Gambit Lyrics

Font:

  • On the lam from the law
  • on the steps of the capitol
  • you shot a plainclothes cop on the ten o'clock
  • and I saw momentarily
  • they flashed a photograph, it couldn't be you
  • you'd been abused so horribly
  • but you were there in some anonymous room
  • and I recall that fall
  • I was working for the government
  • and in a bathroom stall off the National Mall
  • how we kissed so sweetly
  • how could I refuse a favor or two
  • for a trist in the greenery
  • I gave you documents and microfilm, too
  • And from my ten floor tenement
  • where once our bodies lay
  • how I long to hear you say
  • no, they'll never catch me now
  • no, they'll never catch me
  • no, they cannot catch me now
  • we will escape somehow
  • somehow
  • It was late one night
  • I was awoken by the telephone
  • I heard a strangled cry on the end of the line
  • purloined in Petrograd
  • they were suspicious of where your loyalties lay
  • so I paid off a bureaucrat
  • to convince your captors they're to secret you away
  • And at the gate of the embassy
  • our hands met through the bars
  • as your whisper stilled my heart
  • no, they'll never catch me now
  • no, they'll never catch me
  • no, they cannot catch me now
  • we will escape somehow
  • somehow
  • And I dreamt one night
  • you were there in fours
  • head held high
  • in uniform
  • It was ten years on
  • when you resurfaced in a motorcar
  • with the wave of an arm
  • you were there and gone
