lyrics

it all changed six years ago
in the rain by the stage door
on the cusp in love with everyone
on the porch my mind racing
everything i was erasing
it doesn't matter about the time

and it was all the girls and me
and how you wore my tapestry
and how i tore it off that night
and i remember what you said
when i held your weary head
the night the show played in the rain

you said goodbye
but it's never goodbye
when your life
is on the boards
and i'm the age that jesus was
the day he got up on the cross
he knew exactly
what he was

these nights are the best i've known
i've still got this place to go
where people look me in the eye
and we're not the same
but maybe the game is done
and we can all just have a drink

the love i've carried for you
nights at 22
where my heart gets as big as it gets
where i paid my dues
where i got the blues
so many times the tears
just followed the heartache
but these are different times
and man it blows my mind
how many times it all
just got in my way
and it's so familiar
losing love can kill ya
let's just stay crazy waddiya say
let's just stay crazy

another sentimental song
it don't matter what went wrong
cause we've all learned
that summers end
and it's good to see you friend
i'm okay to love again
and i've got so much more to say
so i'll stick around another day

and fill my time with you
i'll fill my time with you
i'll fill my time with you
