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 anything it’s a little bit of achin’.
You know, one day we’ll turn around and without a sound
We’ll be old memories in the church grounds.
Folks’ll walk right past the story they found,
When I’m lying just a few stones down.

VERSE
Years of pushing a rock uphill should’ve gotten us more.
I thought we’d made it to the top – the tipping point.
And on the other side, an easy slide – but you didn’t wanna hang on for the ride.
So for now I’ll hit the jukebox and get it worked out.
Pick some tunes you never liked anyhow:
“You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “Get Off My Cloud”.
I’ll keep listening a few Stones down.

VERSE
Just when you think you’ve gotten it all figured out,
Life comes around and puts back your doubts.
Maybe you and I weren’t meant for all time – but you can’t blame me for putting up a fight.
You know one day we’ll turn around and without a sound
We’ll be old memories in the church grounds.
Folks’ll walk right past the story they found,
When I’m lying just a few stones down.

OUT
So for now I’ll hit the jukebox and get it worked out.
Pick some tunes you never liked anyhow:
“You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “Get Off My Cloud”.
And I’ll keep listening a few Stones down
Oh I’ll keep listening . . .
A few Stones down.

NORTH OF FORTY   VERSEThe 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...
