Lyrics

Home

Written By: Lane Davis

I met a man in Vegas
He rode with me to Tennessee
I told him all about my sorrows
And he shared his with me

(Chorus)
Well, I’ve got a long
Way to go
Got plenty of time
But there is plenty I don’t know
I could make up my mind
Whether to stay or to go
But, all that matters
All that matters
Is who’s waiting at home

v.2
He left his home in Alabama,
Played his first gig at seventeen
Made it clear he wasn’t looking for
The money
Just a way to live the late night
Scene
Women, they sure came easy
But he always felt alone-
Seems like his queen of hearts
Was the one he left at home

(Chorus)
Well, I’ve got a long
Way to go
Got plenty of time
But there is plenty I don’t know
I could make up my mind
Whether to stay or to go
But, all that matters
All that matters
Is who’s waiting at home

Bridge:
He finally sees
The cards he dealt were
Stacked beneath his feet-
And it ain’t no life at all
Just living dreams
When someone else is
Pulling all the strings
(Chorus)
Well, I’ve got a long
Way to go
Got plenty of time
But there is plenty I don’t know
I could make up my mind
Whether to stay or to go
But, all that matters
All that matters
Is who’s waiting at home

No Sorrows

Written By: Lane Davis

Well, I ain’t got no sorrows
Since you’ve been gone
Seems to be my troubles
Left when you moved on
And I ain’t got no worries
Since you’ve been gone
Well I ain’t got no sorrows
Since you’ve been gone

Well, I’ve learned how to live
My life
Got a place on my own
I’ve moved past the ‘how’s’ or ‘why’s’
Into the great unknown
Funny how the years have
Passed
I see the lines on your face
What is now our history
Was once our common place

Well, my friend
I wish you well
It’s hard to say goodbye
And until then I’ll
Keep you near
In the back of my mind
Yeah--

(Chorus)(x2)
Well, I ain’t got no sorrows
Since you’ve been gone
Seems to be my troubles
Left when you moved on
And I ain’t got no worries
Since you’ve been gone
Well I ain’t got no sorrows
Since you’ve been gone

Patchwork Memories

Written By: Lane Davis

Got no love in my life no more
Got no blood in my veins
hear you say it
But I'm not quite sure
I will ever be the same

When will I come around
when will I see you for what you are
all my broken hearts
instead of just beautiful
when will I come around
when will I see you for what you are
not through these
patchwork memories
when will I finally see

What a beautiful lie you make
what a beautiful misery
when will I see the form you take
instead of these roses in my dreams
What have I got to say
to make you love me
What have you got to say
for yourself
I may not know it yet

But someday I'll come around
I'll see you for what you are
all my broken hearts
instead of just beautiful
someday I'll come around
I'll see you for what you are
all my broken hearts
instead of just beautiful
someday I'll come around
I'll see you for what you are
not through these
patchwork memories
not through these
patchwork
memories
when will I finally see

Everything You Need

Written By: Lane Davis

Well I thought so hard
about what to say tonight
after all these years
you turned out all right

See your life turns pages
each and everyday
and with these few words
I know you'll be okay

When you go out on the water
hold steadfast and watch your stride
make the best of where your anchor holds
and I know you'll be alright
if you try you can take me with you
in your heart and memory
with all our love and lessons learned
you'll have everything you need
everything you need (2x)

Well it's been my joy to watch you grow up strong
and the man you're inside, I knew all along
it's these times to define the days that we have left
it's these thoughts to hold high and never to forget

(chorus)
modified chorus:
so go out on the water
be brave take your first step
you'll make so many memories
that you never will forget
in your heart you can take me with you
I'm always near to hear your call
no matter how far you go
you're always close to home
and you'll have everything you need
everything you need
everything you need

Together

Written By: Lane Davis

Megan just called from Atlanta
and it seems she won't be coming home
though I try to seem surprised
this is the third easter in a row

I can't wait til we're together
oh, I can't wait til we're together
circumstances change, seperation stays the same
I can't wait til we're together

My world grows wider
as bekah is waiting on a plane
we stand beside her as calgary steals her away

(chorus)
oh, Birmingham, spread out anther one of my kin
oh, bring me news in my darkest night
so I can live again
(chorus)

Patchwork Memories

Got no love in my life no more

When will I come around
when will I see you for what you are
all my broken hearts

What a beautiful lie you make
what a beautiful misery
when will I see the form you take
instead of these roses in my dreams
What have I got to say
to make you love me
What have you got to say

I may not know it yet

But someday I'll come around
I'll see you for what you are
all my broken hearts
instead of just beautiful
someday I'll come around
I'll see you for what you are
all my broken hearts
instead of just beautiful
someday I'll come around
I'll see you for what you are
not through these
patchwork memories
not through these
patchwork
memories
when will I finally see

Better Off

Written By: Lane Davis

Oh the light comes through the window
and the light streams on your face
oh if I were a bird in the window
I'd fly away

well I know I'm better off, without you
but I can't just let you go
well we've built our sails to catch the wind
all that's left's to let it blow

oh, the light warms up this small house
and the light lifts up the mood
and this little bird knows too well,
she'll be flying soon
(chorus)
all that's left for me is ocean
all the ocean sees is sky
when the time comes I'll remember
when you were mine
(chorus)
oh, oh, oh,
oh, oh, oh
