Lyrics

Moss On A Rolling Stone

Written By: Noah Gundersen

Moss on a Rolling Stone Lyrics

I believe nothing is a better place to be
Than not knowing where you're going now
I said education is a better state of mind
But I'd trade all my books to find a home
If I made bets on a better time
I'd lose my money every single dime
I believe moss on a rolling stone
Is better than the rust that's growing on my house

Cuz it eats at you sometimes

The more you struggle
More you fight it
More it clings to you at night
The more you wonder
More you dream
The more you pray it starts to die
And it does
Though it kicks you in the side
Yes it does
Though it takes a little time

I believe heaven is a pretty place to stay
But not knowing scares me half to death
I believe God is a bigger man than me
But sometimes I think that I can fight him
We kicked the devil on a friday night
Just about lost when he came in close and tight
Took him with a punch to his gritty chin
Asked him to please not come back here again

But he eats at me sometimes

The more you struggle
More you fight it
More it clings to you at night
The more you wonder
More you dream
The more you pray it starts to die
And it does
Though it kicks you in the side
Yes it does
Though it takes a little time

I believe home is a place that I will get someday
I someone just will show
I believe hope is a thing that I will find some time
If someone just will hold me
I believe love is given, going, gone
Come back to kiss me on the forehead
I believe moss on a rolling stone
Is better than the rust that's growing on my home

Cuz it eats at me sometimes

The more I struggle
More I fight it
More it clings to me at night
The more I wonder
More I dream
The more I pray it starts to die
And it does
Though it kicks you in the side
Yes it does
Though it takes a little time
