lyrics

Hollow eyes and a sunken face
told of better days inside

But I know that it's hard to hide
the race that you're running in your heart

From the start it was hard when you lost your grip
and started to slip to the side

And it's true, there'll be better times for you
oh but we've all got it too,
let's live and learn

So sweet was the perfect defeat
and the trees over my shoulder
asking why I let go

But you know it only takes one oar to row
yourself around in circles

And it's true, there'll be better times for you
oh but we've all got it too,
let's live and learn

No sleep will get you down, but not to bed,
and the aching in your head, well it gets old

But you know, when you're burning at both ends
it'll leave you wishing for more wax and wicks to hold

And I've waited
a long time
in the woods
of Carolina
wondering
if I'll ever find
the heart
of that pine

to build
my fire
and keep
the light
by my side
