if you could call it that- a year or two…
I never do what I’m supposed to do- I don’t even need a name anymore…
When no one calls it out, it kind of vanishes away
Time went by and I left and I left again
Jesus loves a sinner but the highway loves a sin
My daddy told me, I believe he told me true that:
“The right thing’s always the hardest thing to do”
I’ve buried her a thousand times, given up my place in line
but I don’t give a damn about that now
There’s one thing that’s real clear to me: No one dies with dignity
We just try to ignore the elephant somehow, somehow
Songs That She Sang in the Shower
Like “Wish You Were Here”
How I wish you were here.
Go It Alone
and rearranging accordingly.
I’m realizing what I’ve lost and what I’ve left
and taking it home,
Going it alone again!
