Track 05 of "Somewhere You'd Rather Be" by Cody J. Martin


You may find me standin' at the end of roads that lead to you
After giving nothin' of me to be seen
And babe, there ain't always a reason for the things we aim to do
It's just a way of workin' out what it all means

But I just flew in to say goodbye
A dried up rain drop in my eye
And nothin' short of words unwed to shame
But you, you're not proud, are you dear ?
You look just like you are not here
And to you, I suppose I look the same
Yes, I suppose I look the same

And it ain't tough to be a gambler gazin' through hard lookin' eyes
When you set the next step of all that you see
And I guess it's just the foreground of your dwindelin' demise
Travellin' by boat to the bottom of the sea

But it's in these hard times that were shown
If you mind yourself and do your own
No one will ever wind up ownin' you
But when it all begins to sink
And you've forgotten how to think
I wonder if you'll know just what to do

Cause oh, my yes
Everything must carry on
But why can't we seem to let go
Of what's already gone?

So oh my friend, why don't you wake up and put all your dreams to bed?
And count my failures by the rings around my eyes
For you know the ides and in-betweens have kept me close to dead
And now there is no place for me to run and hide

Now I'm just a lonesome sparrow singin'
In rib cage frames of burnt out sheds
And I'll hug your angry pellets when they're fired
So come on in, let's play for keeps
You can put my lonely song to sleep
And I'll love you til my heartbeat has retired

Cause oh, my yes
Everything must carry on
But why can't we seem to let go
Of what's already gone?
