lyrics

there ain't no trouble like the kind you get me in

and there ain't no better way to get to heaven

I feel my teeth growin' rotten at the roots

'cuz honey I am sweet on you



these days I feel like a broken old man

just waitin' in the shade for my own passin'

our bright lives, they are fadin' to the dark

and the sap is flowin' slow beneath this bark



listen my love and I will tell you no lies

about all the roads and paths I'm taken

those pretty one I left with tears in their eyes

and the choices that I know I had to make



somehow I feel I got lost along the way

like my grip slipped free in the haze

and I don't know if you could find me if you tried

beneath the sun, beneath the clouds, beneath the sky


chorus



and though we part I will give you my heart

to carry to the corners of this world

and when I'm gone set my ashes to the wind

that my heart may know my body once again



listen my love and I will tell you no lies

about all the roads and paths untaken

those pretty ones I left with tears in their eyes

and the choices that I know I had to make


and though we part I will give you my heart

to carry to the corners of this world

and when I'm gone set my ashes to the wind

that my heart may know my body once again
