lyrics

Coming Up For Air

I took a long drive
Past the edge of town
A long drive
With the window down

A little time
To do some thinking
A little time
On my own

Life’s short
That’s for certain
Then you’re left with
Dust and bones

I’m coming up for air

I made a high dive
Into the deepest well
A high swan dive
I really fell

Headfirst
Into the water
Black water without a shore

And just when
I thought I’d break the surface
I sank some more

I’m coming up for air

The roosters crow
The dogs bark all night
When you wrestle yourself
There’s a good chance you might

Fall on your face
Again

I waited so long
To make it right
Turn the soil
Plant the seeds
Grown the fruits
Where the barren fields stood

I waited so long
And now I know for sure
Some things
They just stay broken
There just ain’t no cure

I’m coming up for air

The roosters crow
The dogs bark all night
When you wrestle yourself
There’s a good chance you might
Fall on your face


Beautiful
Your eyes so bright and round
Your papa’s lost
Your papa’s lost
But sometimes found

I took a long drive
Past the edge of town
A long drive
I pushed the pedal down
