lyrics

I pour myself another drink;
It’s about time that my memory starts to fade.
I think it’s now been seven years,
but yesterday still feels like today,
the way you’d say my name still resonates.

Outside in the city streets
the chaos makes me want to stay inside.
But I remember how my stepping out and letting go
always made you proud.
The sounds of praise resound. It always made me proud.
The sounds of praise resound. It always made me proud.

I remember well the day you left.
I’d seen it coming weeks before it came.
The house was quiet still and warm,
a pleasant but unfamiliar tone.
Atone, atone, atone. A man alone.

Jesse tells me to buck up.
He says I’ve been a fool to mourn so long.
What they didn’t know, and they still don’t,
is that all along I have been just fine

Come on and tell me something sage that you know.
You’re right as always. Just this once I’m in control.
I’m near to finding what I’m looking for,
some peace and quiet from your mercy core.

I wrote a letter to myself
Reminding me that I don’t need a thing.
Just an old guitar and a couple drinks,
a paperback, and maybe time to think.
I think you’d think I’m on a roll.

There’s people always stepping in,
meaning well but missing by a mile.
What they didn’t know, and they still don’t,
Is that all along I have been just fine.

Come on and tell me something sage that you know.
You’re right as always. Just this once I’m in control.
I’m near to finding what I’m looking for,
some peace and quiet from your mercy core.

When I’m alone,
this house becomes a home.
My features start to show.
The pace begins to slow.
The seedling finally starts to grow.

Come on and tell me something sage that you know.
You’re right as always. Just this once I’m in control.
I’m near to finding what I’m looking for,
some peace and quiet from your mercy core.
