I can listen to the wind blow all day wouldn't bother me at all I can watch the rain fall all around me til the dawn I can listen to the laughter of the children playing across the way and I'll tell you one thing How I've never seen a better day oh no I can listen to the people all around me saying what they will they talk about me talk about all the things I do you know but I I just get older and I always thought it was gonna get better oh til that that day in December til that one particular day in December I remember sitting in that Broadway bar Winter chill set in all that was around me are the things they gonna keep me in now I pull another number one more glass of wine one more stranger's story as one more train goes by Now I you know I remember I always thought it was gonna get better oh til that that day in December til that one particular day in December

Here we go again this happens all the time one more step back before my state of mind well there's nothing I can do nothing I can say I'm gonna try again some other day You said, I said and they said it too No one really cares in the end now it never really matters what I know cause I've still got such a long way to go You know it's been a long time since things felt right I'm gonna keep holding on Oh it still doesn't matter which way Which way I go tonight Miles separate but the time is right Got so many things I wanna tell you tonight No one will tell me now no one will do I know what I need and it needs to come from you You know it's been a long time since things felt right I'm gonna keep holding on Oh it still doesn't matter which way I go Doesn't matter now Doesn't matter no no Doesn't matter now no it just don't matter still Which way I go which way I go tonight

I saw you again last night you think I'd know by now that over and over in my mind you run me down what can I do? know that I can't get through to you I've done all I can to let you know I've tried and I'd given anything if you'd give me more time But I think I'm beginning to realize It's been a long time, it's been a long time It's been a long time coming down and I've been waiting, waiting for you to come around I've been waiting for you to come around There's a long list of things I'd like to say to you Boundaries blur with every word and I know that I I know that I've nothing left to prove But you've got everything to keep me around and I've got no time for slowing down where I go Guess I'll get my feet back on the road It's been a long time, it's been a long time It's been a long time coming down and I've been waiting, waiting for you to come around I've been waiting for you to come around So now we're gonna lay in the bed we've made cuz there's no turning back Can't recall what went wrong and you can't change the fact that we've been rolling on we've been rolling on now for too long It's been a long time, it's been a long time It's been a long time coming down and I'm through waiting, waiting for you to come around I'm through waiting for you to come around

Country Song 02:48
Why won't you tell me what's on your mind I've seen that look before and I know you've been crying You try to lie try to hide the tears in your eye But I've learned to recognize when you're down when you're down You can't keep it all inside that's what I've heard before it's harder to practice than to preach a heart can be paralyzed by a story someone tells and I know that I've told one or two I never meant to hurt you I never meant to hurt you I never meant to hurt you Oh oh oh oooh oh Now and then there were times when I was wrong but that don't mean we can't go on Oh I oh I oh I I never meant to hurt you I never meant to hurt you I never meant to hurt you So why won't you tell me what's on your mind I've seen that look before and I know I know you've been crying

You and I 03:30
Some other time in another life you and I will get together once in a while and it'll all be fine just you and I Time's got a way of making of making itself a little bit harder on everyone else and I don't know why yet still we try Then we talk again and tell ourselves that one more chance and everything's gonna be alright but looking back we both knew that over is what this was coming to Then we talk again and tell ourselves that one more chance and everything's gonna be alright but looking back we both knew that over is what this was coming to Got a picture of you I keep to myself reminding me of all the time I spent trying to hold on trying to hold on But now 3 years went by and I think to myself what would I have done with somebody else and what comes to mind? how lonely am I Then we talk again and tell ourselves that one more chance and everything's gonna be alright but looking back we both knew that over is what this was coming to Then we talk again and tell ourselves that one more chance and everything's gonna be alright but looking back we both knew that over is what this was coming to ooh ooh oh

Empire Bar 04:14
If there is no wisdom written up in the stars This ain't an arrow digging a hole in my heart At the Empire Bar up on Broadway and 4th I wrote more love songs than I could afford Seventeen years old with my brother's ID I learned to drink whiskey and sing harmony And if I can drink wisdom right out of the stars I'll drink this arrow right out of my heart Did you wonder where I was before you went to sleep I got to drinking and stealing this melody The jukebox was playing low another midwestern song I started singing out but the words were all wrong I sang of whiskey with no small regard I sang this arrow right out of my heart At the Empire Bar up on Broadway and 4th I wrote more love songs than I could afford I wrote this arrow to sing you tonight I wrote this love song to shoot you on site

Time 02:07
Take a look around we're gonna see what we find you know I've still got a couple little things on my mind don't you know I think about them all the time Nothing will calm me nothing will do except sometimes that letter that I got from you One more time you know the words are gonna see me through Oh no why I wish time would roll by Time's got a way of having it's way with me Well no why I wish time would blow on by well I can't take anymore time with me Don't be silent Don't be afraid keep everything to myself it's not as hard as it seems a little bit of time well it's the last thing that I need Oh no why I wish time would roll by Time's got a way of having it's way with me Well no why I wish time would blow on by well I can't take anymore time with me

Phone Lines 03:15
Come on take a walk with me and tell me who do you love cause I know I know I'm not the one you're thinking of anymore anymore Georgia in the Summer time will make you go insane I know oh I know cause I almost forgot your name when I saw that red-headed girl I know something's going on and you try not to explain or is it just that lonesome feeling coming on again you've got something you won't say through phone line or mail Try you try you try so hard but sometime the wheels won't turn all the mistakes we've made you know another lesson learned Come on sit down with me before we go another round looks like one of us is gonna have to lay this down tonight oh tonight I know something's going on and you try not to explain or is it just that lonesome feeling coming on again Now I know what you wouldn't say through phone line or mail

I've got a long way to go before I get home but I don't know if I can go it alone Now I'm so tired of trying I've told a long list of lies and now it's holding me down There's no one around no one to call to now Where did I go wrong? Where did I go wrong? Where did I go wrong? Gotta take a little time to see the lines round my eyes where did the time go? I feel much older now I've got some stories to tell but what have I to show? no no no Now 30 years have gone by time after time I've tried to run tried to run but I don't know what I'm running from What am I running from? What am I running from? What am I running from? I've got a long way to go before I get home But now I know I can't go it alone Well every time I try to speak my mind's a mystery it's foreign now Then you come to me you set my mind at ease when you say lay it down Lay it down What am I laying down? What am I laying down? Before it lays me down

Overtime 01:51
There's been a lot of overtime to keep me away but babe I don't wanna go One thing I know about the road I'm on it's gonna take me home to you Now there've been times when we didn't know if we were gonna make it through but it all comes around after the rains fall you know I'm still so in love with you Oh now I know things can be kind of hard now I know we're gonna have to try to make it right oh oh oh There's been a lot of overtime to keep me away and babe I don't wanna go I may not be the best at saying so but I'm still so in love with you I'm still so in love so in love with you

Home 03:44
Meanwhile back at home everything's the same since you been gone I still wake up every morning same old train whistle blowing One more time I'm gonna try to write this letter down try not to seem alone But the words now they won't let me lie and maybe you'll just know Oh oh no I I oh oh I I don't know where to hide and I can't seem to lie When are you coming home? home Do you remember how it used to be? we'd never let anything between but old times change and where does the time go? and how could we had known how could we had known Oh oh no I I oh oh I I don't know where to hide and I can't seem to lie When are you coming home? home
