lyrics

Well when we started out, things were much easier
We would write down our dreams, and somehow they’d appear
Oh but not now, oh but not now.

Well when we started out, things seemed so clear
We could banish our fears with a kiss and a bottle of beer.
Oh but not now, oh but not now.

Cause some hard rains came
And a flood it walled me in
And the time just taught my heart how to forget
So pour me one more
Make it alright
But girl don’t you leave me here, not tonight.

Well I once was a kid, then I grew up somehow
Not sure where those days they went, but they’re gone now
And I don’t know how, I don’t know how.

Well I wish that I had just a day or two to be free
But that time’s got a chain around my neck and I can’t breathe
And feeling alright,
well that’s just a dream

So you pour out your whole heart, and
I just drink till I’m not here
And the days go on like they’ve been.

Cause some hard rains came
And a flood it walled me in
And the time just taught my heart how to forget
So pour me one more
Make it alright
But girl don’t you leave me here, not tonight
