lyrics

I was sitting in the church, you were yelling in the street
blood on your shirt and gravel in your knees
I was alone, and you were afraid
you thought they couldn't give you what you need

I told you once that the truth is a song
maybe I'm wrong
maybe I just want to write it
but I've been so close I could smell her breath
like cinnamon and death
made me wonder what I'm fighting

I've seen you in the back row
yeah I've seen you in the back row
I've seen you with your eyes closed at the all night show cause you think that you can't go home
I know you don't believe me
it's not late to wash your hands clean
I've seen you in your shirt sleeves with a beer on your knee when the can sweats a circle on your jeans

There was a time I knew every face
now the whole damn town is painted black and grey
that don't have to mean it was a fall from grace
but there are choices, choices must be made

I've seen you in the back row
yeah I've seen you in the back row
I've seen you breathing real slow when you just hope only God knows where you've been
and I've seen you on the highway
thinking all the things you'd never say
and praying to the debt you can't pay
give me one more day, give me one more day
