tire swing 03:06
kids in the park, swinging from a tire singing, 'liar liar pants on fire' and other school yard jingles kids in the playground, falling down a slide yelling, 'cross my heart and hope to die' and other nonsense lingo where'd the time go? how'd my life turn? I'm so out of touch with a children's world oh to be young, to be free sister at the altar, gave her hand away feels like it was yesterday that it was us in the school yard sister in her finest dress, falling into love and I wonder if I'm strong enough to open up my heart where'd the time go? how'd my life turn? I'm so out of touch with my sister's world oh to be young, to be free dean's on the highway, chasing a dream crossing the country at 20 years old playing rock and roll it's not for the faint of heart, it's not some holiday it takes guts and it takes heart to live out on the road where'd the time go? how'd my life turn? I'm so out of touch with a dreamer's world oh to be young, to be free

my three favourite words to use are 'I don't know' 'Hey Braden, what are you doing tonight?' 'I don't know' 'What are you doing with your life, boy?' 'I don't know' step up to bat boy, can you make that ball fly step up to the plate, can you make that baseball fly I don't know but I'll give it a try you shave your head, your hair grows back make a mistake and learn to laugh cut your teeth and take your time and it's okay to change your mind there's a mark on the wall but we can paint over that the cat's been gone but she always comes back and the river runs until the river runs dry and it's okay to change your mind her three favourite words to use were, 'I love you' 'I love you Braden, what do you think about that?' 'I don't know' 'What do you mean you don't know, what's wrong with you?' 'I don't know' the highway lasts forever and tomorrow is a long time the highway lasts forever and tomorrow is a long time I don't know where I am going but I'm going to fly you shave your head, your hair grows back make a mistake and learn to laugh cut your teeth and take your time and it's okay to change your mind there's a mark on the wall but we can paint over that the cat's been gone but she always comes back and the river runs until the river runs dry and it's okay to change your mind

smell of lilacs in the air it's a blue sky morning it's been a long night of rain I'm taking the long way back home again the long way home gravel turns to dust beneath the wheel along that riverside it's been a long time gone i'm taking the long way back home again the long way home lee found a good man and settled down the tree line reaches further towards the sky and everything hits me now crossing over that sturgeon county line on my way back home leave my spot at the kitchen table keep your head held high it's a long life of pain and I'm taking the long way back home again the long way home lee found a good man and settled down the tree line reaches further towards the sky and everything hits me now crossing over that sturgeon county line on my way back home

late night TV, I'm tired and blue every show reminds me of you I think of all the times i've tried to figure this all out by banging my head against the wall and baby it's true, I've had my doubts but I'm too scared to call I think I know the answer I think I know the answer I used to think I was invincible like I could do anything without paying a price now I see it all in such a different light where are you tonight? back of the bar, cheap beer and wine everyone's got a story if you have the time there's a lady in the back laughing like she's lost her sense of humour and I won some money on a darts game there was a time when I'd spend it all on you and I'd call you but I'm too afraid I think I know the answer I think I know the answer I used to think I was invincible like I could do anything without paying a price now I see it all in such a different light where are you tonight?

another senseless death at the hands of a bottle drunk hand reaching for the end of a throttle somebody's woman, somebody's mama ain't coming home now blood on highway 15 tonight blood on the hand of a drunk man crying somebody's woman, somebody's mama ain't coming home now you can lock him away, you can put him down ain't nothing you can do to bring her back around somebody's woman, somebody's mama ain't coming home now what do you feel when you feel pain children kneeling down to pray what do you see when you see rain somebody's mama ain't coming home again

I think it's time to say goodbye to the author of my past as I sit in present tense, this intensity cannot last I want to bear witness to the labours of my love go and tell the mistress that we have had enough love never comes black or white it may be hard to pull through but despite all that, Sarah, I miss you despite all that, Sarah when the church bells ring in just a few hours I'll have still not gone to bed something about a saturday night that keeps me from my rest I want to hold on to all of those things I cannot see and I have found no reason to keep me from that belief love never comes black or white it may be hard to pull through but despite all that, Sarah, I miss you despite all that, Sarah
