Oh I heard you’re chasing dreams
I heard you’re drawing out the times
But you just fiddle with the idle hours
And spend the good ones writing rhymes

Who’s to say you’re a student?
And who’s to say they’re here to teach?
Who’s to say all the problems are meant to be solved?
And who’s to say who’s incomplete?

Well, I saw you there just the other night
Sippin’ stories about your past
You had this look upon your tired face
That made me wish the bad times last

I wish the bad times last

So, I tasted all your memories
The way they brewed beneath your tongue
And by the time I wanted out of there
It was too far for me to run

So we shared a pint of sorrow
And we talked all about last June
And dreamt of what life could be like
If I wasn’t always leaving you


from Creek Don't Rise, released August 8, 2013
