lyrics

Spent too much time counting my grey hairs
and not enough time counting blessings
Keep a watchful eye for somebody who cares
just in case theirs are blinded

A sideways glance tells me she's not there
but why would the past hold any answers
While the scenery to my memory declares
there's nowhere to go but forward

The message isn't clear, but it seemed like such a great idea

I wanted to reach you with something beautiful
but nothing I dreamed up could ever be
I wanted to reach you with something beautiful
but nothing I dreamed up could ever be
as beautiful as you, as you

Just sing along to a favorite song
I've never heard that one, never will again
Another step another stride it won't be long
to reach that endless horizon

Get the energy to start over again
in this short attention span lifestyle
You speak your mind, but the loudest voice
always drowns out those with something to say

The message isn't clear, and it seemed like such a great idea

I wanted to reach you with something beautiful
but nothing I dreamed up could ever be
I wanted to reach you with something beautiful
but nothing I dreamed up could ever be
as beautiful as you
I wanted to reach you with something beautiful
but nothing I dreamed up could ever be
as beautiful as you, as you.
