When considering redemption you must repair yourself, repair your relationships, and then return home... then try your damndest to stay out of trouble.

lyrics

Been coming home for so long it’s uphill both ways.
The nights have drifted, stretching out to an endless string of days.
Don’t like the taste in my mouth, It’s dry and no longer sweet.
In the winter we will go south and get lost at America’s feet.

You put down the bottle and I will turn off the lights.
Go ahead, climb in bed, we’re going to sleep early tonite.

You know, Memphis was a long time ago and she didn’t mean nothing to me.
I’m chasing my tail all around your frame, your light that’s too bright to see.
Hurt ain’t nothing but a memory that we refuse to let go.
The pain peels your skin off down to the bone, time will move so slow.

You put down the bottle and I will turn off the lights.
Go ahead, climb in bed, we’re going to sleep early tonite.

The shadow cast in September stretched all the way to May.
It’s unlike you not to remember when you had so much to say.
About which way my life is going and where it’s going so fast.
This candle I’m burning at both ends and just how long it will last.

You put down the bottle and I will turn off the lights.
Go ahead, climb in bed, we’re going to sleep early tonite.
