lyrics

Thirty-one years things I’ll never learn
When to listen how to read certain signs
Kid causing trouble always moving on
Waiting for the last minute running out of time

Listen to the street lights humming
Songs for days we try to leave behind
Winter days are short conversations get to quick
knowing something was wrong was to know when it was right

One last call that I got from you
I was so proud gonna be a dad
Losing and becoming one at the same time
Couldn’t be more happy couldn’t be more sad

Listen to the telephone line humming
For a voice I know I have to leave behind
Memories are short I hold on to all I can
To know he was gone you had to know what it felt like

A thousand miles away from where I left you
In that field that never lies
Wind as cold as steel all debts are absolved
Words couldn’t help but I guess they never tried
No I guess they never tried

Listen to the highway it’s humming
Songs for days we try to leave behind
Memories are short I hold on to every word you said
So I can pass them on like a fragile candle light
