If I Wait 03:51
If I wait To tell you how I feel It might be too late Before the clouds rush in The trees will lose their bloom And all the rivers will run dry It might be too late If I wait If I wait The birds will all fly south It might be too late Before the winter sets it The grass will die The icicles will take shape It might be too late If I wait If I wait The ticker might stop tickin' It might be too late If I wait The earth will shake Tremble us down to the bone It might be too late If we wait The sun is staring me down Soon it’ll melt my brain Set the table, I’ll lay it all out for you When I’m dead and gone Don’t need anyone assuming the things I’d say or do. If I wait For the winds to stop blowin' It might be too late Before the skies have cleared The locomotive could pick you up You’d be gone in the middle of the night It might be too late If I wait

Sunset west of the horizon line Felt more like an illusion than cosmic time The coyotes were howlin’ Fish runnin upstream Stretching out for the full moon gleam Sunshine rising over hazy hills Wipe the sweat from your brow Heats blazing to the gills Dreaming about better weather Dreaming about birds of a feather Open up your eyes for another year Another year that’ll hold you tighter Drivin’ back and forth in your pickup truck Drive around in circles Until you drive all night Birds were sleeping until the frosty dawn Takin flight overhead, singin their own songs There’s greener pastures up ahead Looking down to take the worm out of the garden bed Wild horses runnin, wild and free Not a care in the world bout desert debris Trying to find a new place to graze Drinking water from the river side lake Open up your eyes for another year Another year that’ll hold you tighter Drivin’ back and forth in your pickup truck Drive around in circles Until you drive all night Another trip around the big ol sun If it hasn’t burned you yet, The luck river you should run Double down, you’re showing aces high You ain’t gonna win unless you try Open up your eyes for another year Another year that’ll hold you tighter Drivin’ back and forth in your pickup truck Drive around in circles Until you drive all night
