lyrics

If I could see all of the years I've run
Hating all I was
It would break me for sure

Holidays that I was high, alone
Looking for someone
Almost broke me, for sure
Almost broke me like a stone

For the days that we spent
Like the graves of the dead
Look alive
When it's all in our heads

And the path that we tread
Left a trail where we bled
Brown and red
So I'm still on my meds

After all the years and beers I've drunk
Singing here unsung
You could slay me for sure
You could lay me on the floor

And if all the ones that got away
Said I had a chance that day
It would break me for sure
Like an aching in my bones

For the days that we spent
Yeah just lying in bed
Innocence
In a sense we were glad

But the graves of the dead
Look alive in our heads
When they ain't
They're a sign that was left

And to anyone who ever heard
From someone they were nothing
It could break you for sure
It could drag you down below

Honey sometimes all that you got left
Is settling or running
It can take you down the road
It could break you for sure

For the words that we speak
Like the days of the week
Are our names for the world
That we need to believe

And the lies that we tell
To ourselves for a spell
While we wait
For a turn in the well

In the life that we live
May the road have a bend
For there's always a light in the end
