Lyrics

I was halfway home on the road to redemption
Looking in the rearview I could see your reflection
Calling out my name
Begging baby please
It's hard to make a stand when you're down on your knees

I was so strung out from another long winter
Searching for a youth that I just couldn't remember
Deeper and deeper to the depths of my soul
I was living in the moment I was losing control.

I exhausted all my options
Trying to make a brand-new start.
Every time temptation called my name
Well I'd just fall apart.

I gave my best
But I came up short
I tried to walk a straight & narrow path
That would lead me to your door
My one regret
I hope you know
Left an emptiness inside of me
That is swallowing me whole.
I gave my best.

Years & years of an endless obsession
Trying to hold on to my greatest possession
Hanging by a thread
Tightening my grip
The wind began to blow
Until I started to slip

The truth comes out in the strangest of places
Stares you in the face until you're weak & defenseless
Breaks you down until you give in
Scattering the ashes just like dust in the wind

Once upon a lifetime
Before everything went wrong
You're the only thing that's left in me
That keeps me hanging on.

I gave my best
But I came up short
I tried to walk a straight & narrow path
That would lead me to your door
My one regret
I hope you know
Left an emptiness inside of me
That is swallowing me whole.
I gave my best.

Once upon a lifetime
Before everything went wrong
You're the only thing that's left in me
That keeps me hanging on.

I gave my best
But I came up short
I tried to walk a straight & narrow path
That would lead me to your door
My one regret
I hope you know
Left an emptiness inside of me
That is swallowing me whole.
I gave my best.

One of the great things about music is that it lives on forever!!”
