These Days

Saturday

the morning came and ran away

and the leaves have something to say to you

that I thought you need to know

Did you hear

the wind blowing words through your ears

and if you have the time to relive all these years

take a drive out to the sea

Well I'm caught up in the tide again

and I'm falling down from grace

but I'll keep you close

somewhere in the back of my mind

taking love for granted but wanting forgiveness

these days I'm trying to be

better than I was

December came

and your tail lights burned out through the grey

driving home to learn what doesn't stay the same

when your thoughts hold your heart for ransom

Broken smile

and the hardest part to reconcile

is what it takes to be free and wild

well call my name when you find an answer

Time means more when it's kept from rewinding

and we both learned our fate some time ago

will the world tear us apart

or will be open up our eyes 

and hope for next time

cause these days I'm trying to be 

better than I was

Well I'm caught up in the tide again

and I'm falling down from grace

but I'll keep you close

somewhere in the back of my mind

taking love for granted but wanting forgiveness

these days I'm trying to be

better than I was
