lyrics

so nice to see tucked so tight beneath the sheets
not a worry left in this world just a tired mind at peace
so I do believe I've seen all that I need
a pocket full of haunting reminders, I'll take them where I need to be

CHORUS-
so I rake up the leaves, gas up the old tractor
procrastinate with me honey, later on we move a little faster
I miss that old town, and the people we used to be
but when I turn that key over, it comes rushing back to me

oh momma don’t you see I still hold to my beliefs
I'm just a little country jaded, a little older than I used to be
I still talk to my sister, made some friends kinda like me
I’ve got plans for tomorrow, they’re just not a priority

CHORUS

the smell of California breeze blowing through Torrey Pines
it keeps my feet north of Hell, a little peace to my mind
sunny days are my provider, a good living gives me the time
but any other world I'd be born in, his beer would sit right next to mine

CHORUS

who am I to die now? and who are you to change?
I can’t stop my direction, I can’t stop because you stay
now who am I to be now, but what anybody else should need?
I put that town in my rear view, and watch those thin white lines fade

but outside that house I look inside to see
the right side of the bed was just the wrong place to be
torn pages are my reminder, lost souls are God’s decree
my bones feel so hollow, but Dad's head and the heart is for me
