22 HOURS (II)

LA Schaible
  VERSE Pack of Winstons, the ashtray’s near full. I knock off a long ash and watch the smoke swirl. Then I trace the flowers on the curtains again, And realize all this is wearing too thin. Three months on the road, and I’m in Molene, Out chasing a songwriter’s elusive dream. Time’s draggin’ on, til it’s time for a shower, And I’ve started hatin’ the days then the hours. CHORUS 22 hours – left to go, til I’m on stage and end up wantin’ more. 22 hours – til the next show, for two turns of the clock’s hand I give up my soul. 22 hours – thinking of home, you waiting for me, I guess we’re both alone 22 hours. VERSE I don’t mind it here at the no tell motel. Sheets are clean, cash pays the bill. The couple next door reminds me of us And those early years in that VW bus. The red neon light from the tattoo all-nighter, Makes this dull room uncomfortably brighter. CHORUS 22 hours – left to go, til I’m on stage and end up wantin’ more. 22 hours – til the next show, for two turns of the clock’s hand I give up my soul. 22 hours – thinking of home, you waiting for me, I guess we’re both alone 22 hours. BRIDGE You don’t leave or ask me to give it up, But we both know you’re better at love. CHORUS 22 hours – left to go, til I’m on stage and end up wantin’ more. 22 hours – thinking of home, you waiting for me, I guess we’re both alone – 22 hours. 22 hours.

I Left For Texas Lyrics

I LEFT FOR TEXAS   VERSE For me getting out meant a spot on a map, An “anywhere but here” place to land. For you it was always a little more grand. No bein’ a small town preacher like your old...

A FEW STONES DOWN   VERSE Well, the cold’s not so bitter if you drink a few rounds. I’m watchin’ the rocks change the whiskey by the hour. But this doesn’t mean I’m devastated – if...

North Of Forty Lyrics

NORTH OF FORTY   VERSE The world looks different on my side of the map, there’s gravel runnin’ under your wheels. You never think you’ll make it back to a four lane road. On my side of town...
