my lyricsbox
Was a summer's day when you first walked away
At the time I wasn't feeling so bad
Gave me shit while I looked away
Just like every big conversation that we ever had

And you know how a thing like that can be such a terrible shame
'Cause it makes you feel mean
Your eyes were so very green

And it's foolish to think
You would ever consider it again
After two or three drinks
All the books on the subject say
"Just move along, give yourself some time to think"

They say follow your heart,
What if your heart never knew where to go or why?

You'd have sang goodbye
To people whose every word is just a lie
Like a guilty man who knows he's gonna fry
I was hoping to catch that old dreamy look in your eye

And it's foolish to need any sign
You'd consider me again after smoking some weed
All our friends are so bored of hearing
Every tired and desperate word we'd ever plead

They say follow your heart,
What if your heart never knew where to go, or why?

You'd have sang goodbye
To people whose every word is just a lie
And you wonder just a little if your soul
Isn't starting to die
You spend every waking moment wondering why
Why why why why why
Why why why why why

Was a winter's day when I finally realized
I was the one always walking away
That you tried so many times and I'd ignored
Every word that you had to say

And you know how a thing like that
Can be such a terrible shame
'Cause it makes you feel old
And your words were so very cold

And it's foolish to think
You can bury it all in some endless drive to drink
Every person you meet can tell you're a ship
Taking water in a storm and you're starting to sink

If you follow your heart
Then you're bound to become something else
You take one hard look at yourself

And you'll say I'm gonna do everything
You said I couldn't do when I was high
And I'll write your name in stars across the sky
And we'll meet somewhere someday and you'll ask me why
Why why why why why
Why why why why why
Why why why why why
This song is from the album "Songs of God and Whiskey".
