Lyrics

4. She Might Have Been a Muse


I been livin’ like there’s no tomorrow, just breathin’ out and breathin’ in

Headin’ for the end of the pavement, where the old dirt road begins

I run through what’s been dealt me, and I’m borrowin’ what I can’t steal

I got everything I own in the back of my car, but it ain’t nothin’ I can

feel


I got a suitcase full of trouble I been haulin’ round for years

I got a mason jar wrapped up tight filled with Hallmark tears

I been buildin’ bodies from stolen bones and sellin’ ‘em like they was new

I got out of there by the skin of my teeth, it was the best thing that I

could do


chorus

Blues man on the stereo’s got trouble on his mind

And he says, don’t be a stranger, give me a chance to be kind


I been watchin’ as the brown hills rub up against the sky

I been worryin’ about the friction between a fiction and a lie

I been cleanin’ out my pockets, sortin’ keys and coins and string

I been tryin’ to stay on my side of the road no matter what tomorrow brings


chorus

I’m watchin’ every penny, I got Lincoln on my mind

And he says, don’t be a stranger, give me a chance to be kind



bridge

Well, I thought I might have lost it once, but I’d just been confused

Guilty of holdin’ on too tight, afraid of what I might lose

But as the sand slips through my fingertips and there’s little left to hold

She says, you gotta stand up out there, though it’s cruel and bitter cold



Well, she might have been a vapor, or she might have been a muse

She could have took me for everything I had and left me old and used

But something seemed to resonate and ring out loud and true

So I threw myself at the mercy of her touch, it was all that I could do


chorus

And when I stumble if I feel I’m in a bind

She says, don’t be a stranger, give me a chance to be kind

She said, don’t be a stranger, give me a chance to be kind
