"take it all back, bring me the next one. never you mind, where it's from." those were the last words we heard him say right before he collapsed. now we got phone calls. plans to be set. a weekend down in mobile again. it's funny how all this seems to get pushed to the horizon. deferred until the night comes and grabs onto both of us. come on over. come with me. come on down to tennessee. we got lots to talk about and there's no one else around. maybe all this has a purpose. maybe we can get it right. come on over and tell me why you won't spend the... come and collect a bag of possessions. take what you need and go. make up your mind to come out of this a little better. and we'll give it all back. we'll never get taken. we'll never be fools again. we'll see the best of the people around us and remember that we never surrendered and turned around this year. come on over. come with me. come on down to tennessee. we got lots to talk about and there's no one else around. maybe all this has a purpose. maybe we can get it right. come on over and tell me why you won't spend the... you got all this. you got me. we got this house. tennessee. playing all our favorite songs. fall asleep in each others arms. and remember all the hard times, all the things we thought we'd drag like a stone? they'll all become dust on our front lawn. come on over. come with me. come on down to tennessee. we got lots to talk about and there's no one else around. maybe all this has a purpose. maybe we can get it right. come on over and tell me why you won't spend the...

this is where the weekdays begin this is where all the debts come due this is the point in the joke where we all stop laughing and start to wonder this is where all of our drinking turns from fun to medicine this is where our recollecting leads this is who we always said we'd never have to worry we'd be, so worried we'd be so worried, we'd be so worried so worried we'd be, so worried we'd be so worried, we'd be so worried this is where you don't look the same this is where i can't find anyone to blame and walk the other way call a cab and sleep all day this is all that we can hope for this is all that's left to expect to say goodbye, to all our friends and marry each other, marry each other and we will be so lonely, we'll be so lonely we'll be so lonely so lonely, we'll be so lonely, we'll be so lonely, we'll be so lonely give me balance, give me order give me everything i need make a motion, with your arms and bring us both into the sea give me balance, give me order give me everything i need make a motion, with your arms and draw us all into the sea so lucky, we'll be so lucky, we'll be so lucky, we'll be so lucky lucky, we'll be so lucky, we'll be so lucky we'll be so lucky and oh, we got balance, we got order we got everything we need and make a motion, with your arms and draw us all in to the sea the sea

nothing gets old. it just gets replaced. like me and distractions and you and this place. but i'll be the only light in the room left shining. left shining. like a ghost. like a ghost. you're so surprising and sweetly arranged. winter almost killed us but something here remains. and i'll be the miner if you'll be the gold inside these hills. the face behind my will. and now that i see that nothing comes cheap i'll be. i'll be the host. and all these light eyes. and all these white lies i told come back to me. like a ghost. now we're distracted. awkwardly pulled. a sidewalk that's spinning out of our control. but i'll be the hope if you'll be the life i finally choose. the line i never lose. and now that i see that nothing comes cheap i'll be. i'll be the host. and all these light eyes. and all these white lies i told come back to me. like a ghost. get back get it back tonight swim out out of the tide swim right into my life.

we are the only, we'll get it right, we better write it down before we forget i've seen the future fleetingly, keep on putting feet in front of feet, and get on get along we are the only, we’ll get it right, how we remember when this all began here keep on repeating our old lines, keep on putting feet in front of feet, again another time and you’re goddamn right, you did you did, and you’re goddamn right, you said, what you said but I’ll be here baby, we’ll get past stable and get there on our own you were the only, you were the one, you were the only thing I saw for months here. snapping back and forth between, careening through the midwest back to dreams of dreams of my routine and you’re goddamn right, you did you did, and you’re goddamn right, you said, what you said and we’ll be here baby, we’ll get past stable and get there on our own. you were tired you saw through the balance and you brought yourself over here, brought yourself over here, and oh how I came so close to disaster but I made my way home, and I made my way directly to you come on we were the young, we were the only we were the ever loving boys and girls we got it right, we were mistaken we keep putting feet in front of feet come on
