lyrics

One day, while the sun is going down.
I’ll stop and look around at all the things I’ve lost.
Beds unmade, and my life is slowing down.
As the light falls underground, I’ll toast to all I’m not.

Oh cuz I can’t keep all your pieces neat.
As tucked and sheltered in a box as they might seem.
Oh and you’ve got more than your fingers can
Hold or start to mend into things that you might need.

So let’s lay it all down, and have a drink for the sake of grace.

It's a monday, and my lungs are filling up,
I’ve got more than I might have clung, to in my younger days.
I’m a cheap date, but I make it all about myself.
And though I love and care I shelf, the things I really wanted to say.

Oh cuz I can’t keep all your pieces neat.
As tucked and sheltered in, a box as they might seem.
Oh and you’ve got more than your fingers can
Hold or start to mend into things that you might need.

So let’s lay it all down, and have a drink for the sake of grace.
Im drinking holy water, but I'm starting to lose my faith.

You’re talking but no one’s home.
And when the paintings all fell
the colors ended up on the floor.
Yeah you’re crying but no one’s home.
And I’m like dog, just learning my place.

So let’s lay it all down, and have a drink for the sake of grace.
