Like An Old Time Country Song You are right and I am wrong Like in an old time country song You’ve got your truth and I’ve got mine Like strangers walking, crossing lines I know what you’re holding back Behind your teeth Don’t put me on trial Lawyers can’t justify it All we can do is simplify it I’ve come around to all your neighborhoods I got lost like a lamb in the woods I found out that who I am and who I want me to be are not the same man If you’re handing me a ticket for a guilt trip Make it a one-way Don’t put me on trial lawyers can’t justify it All we can do is simplify it Put a record on and turn up the gramophone “Let me spin you around” the country singer moans Let’s not see how the story ends but how it goes Like in a black and white motion picture show Don’t put me on trial lawyers can’t justify it All we can do is simplify it Like in an old time country song And a black and white motion picture show

Trust is a Choice It’s come to the time Don’t need a reason Under dimmed stage lights I’m closing the curtain I had one foot on the wire But doubted the other Had I been given the sky while I could only think of falling? I know it all means so much You asked me to give myself up Now the quiet is filled with noise I reach out to hear your voice I learned to capture and write all the things I couldn’t tell but the ink had run dry I never got to the point an empty poet inside at the crest of a dawn I thought you asked for too much That what you gave was what you took Now the quiet is filled with noise I reach out and hear your voice Trust is a choice And I’m learning it these days since you turned away I know it all means so much You asked me to give myself up Now the quiet is filled with noise I reach out and hear your voice
