about

Flooding in the valley, frost is on the ground / Droplets on the window, cold is moving back to town / Been a long year since I saw you / Guess you and I are much the same / Wishful thinking that we’ve cleaned up / While we still play the poet game // CHORUS: There was a time when I would have done anything / Anything to make you want me / I’m not crying because we never did anything / I’m crying cause that’s all behind me now // And how I worshipped at the altar / of hurt and heartbreak for so long / Made saints out of wanderers / And hymns out of their songs / How I wanted to be like you, tough and reckless and strong / Watching you taught me both sides / Living right and living wrong // CHORUS // Guess this is how it feels to have made it / Disillusioned with illusions I was chasing / No trophies or parades, just the quiet realization / I’m free of the old enchantments on my heart // I really was no different than any kid with a guitar / Trying to make someone love me by trading songs and scars / You really were no different than any hero I could choose / Beneath all the wisdom, there’s only ordinary blues / Beneath all the wisdom, there’s only ordinary blues // CHORUS //
