Khmer Blues ( ក្រុមតោខៀវខ្មែរ )

lyrics

I better look outside my window
Someone's calling my name
Take a moment in the sunrise
Before they take me away

Leave it behind, when no one else is around
Come out at night, don't wanna lose what I just found

Well I got so tired of the city
I'm a wanted man there
I've settled in a temple
I am pretending to pray

Tell me the truth, what no one else knows about
You're supposed to know, you must blind me with your light

I made friends with a monkey
It follows me everywhere
But when the priest came to help me
It ran right out my way

I got lectured by the old man
About man and god and law
He tied a bracelet to my ankle
I've been wearing it since then

It's my lucky charm, but I never got it to work
I'm stuck with it now, but I'm never gonna look back

I've said my lines, now I'm letting you reply
You can write it in a letter, before we say goodnight
