Track 04 of "Somewhere You'd Rather Be" by Cody J. Martin

lyrics

Hard blues are all that's left to see
I feel sick and I'm far too tired to sleep
It's so quick to trip and fall when the world sits at your feet
And like all else the pain's been handed down

And hard blues are the days that end with "why?"
The answers blowin' in the wind of a different time
There's nowhere to go now but there's somewhere on my mind
I hope these streams can save me from this hell

Cause O lord here it comes again, I'm startin' to doubt
That I'm understood but not figured out
And I'm tied down to this dried up creek bed but still I will drown
I'm only cryin' cause I've got nothin' to cry about

And hard blues are all that's left to hold
I've got it all but I have nothing to show
And you don't know anything until nothing's all you own
I hope these streams can save me from myself
Cause I long for something else

And O lord here it comes again, I'm startin' to doubt
That I'm understood but not figured out
And I'm tied down to this dried up creek bed but still I will drown
I'm only cryin' cause I've got nothin' to cry about

And it ain't no fever that sickens you of yourself
And you don't know why but you know it well
You got no reason for tears but still you cry
This life you live's a disease that don't heal til you die

Cause O lord here it comes again, I'm startin' to doubt
That I'm understood but not figured out
I'm tied down to this dried up creek bed but still I will drown
I'm only cryin' cause I've got nothin' to cry about
