lyrics

Get your feet on the ground
instead of looking around
I left a message in the mirror for you
I'm packing my bags
with soot and cinnamon rags
and gettin' holy by the miles on my shoes

Oh, my work was all I had
years pointing to eternity
for all the other things I'd rather be

My soul reaction to the way he talks?
I mean, he built himself a body
out of a drink and a wife and a church
and a house and a clock
And if I don't believe him and yet still depend
on his pocket for fare to the show
I hope they sing our song again

I thought your mother should know
that we both had to go
and so I bargained up a compass for two
I drew her a map back to where we were at
and wrote I'm happy that I got close to you

But oh, won't she be so sad
years painted on an empty lane
her look 'a dreamin' up the kids again

My soul reaction to the way he talks?
I mean, he built himself a body
out of a drink and a wife and a church
and a house and a clock
And if I don't believe him and yet still depend
on his pocket for fare to the show
I hope they sing our song again

If I don't want living to be what I'm not
then I'd better get better at living without
all that I don't got

Yeah, if I don't want living to be what I'm not
then I'd better get better at living without
all that I don't got
