Hold you close No one has to know If we got somethin' Holy Ghost Sound of mind and soul A shallow blessin' I can't be all I can't recall your face Is there a reason? Why I'm here And you're so far away Must be a reason Here, all things move slow Were only flesh and bone I shoot lucky But I shoot straight I wouldn't have it any other way It might mean nothin' It might be fate But I wouldn't have it any other way Dancing pyre Cat got your tongue? Not what ya wanted? Trigger shy buyer God's prodigal son Not what ya needed? I shoot lucky But I shoot straight I wouldn't have it any other way It might mean nothin' It might be fate But I wouldn't have it any other way

Honey said "Don't come around, baby" "If ya feelin' like ya shit don't smell" Main-drag with the gate down howlin' And a-shakin' Never kiss and tell She won't let it go She won't let it go She won't let it go How can I complain? Cut and dry, heard the line one too many times "For the Bible tells me so" Seen the good, was the bad Can't understand what's playin' on the radio He won't let it go He won't let it go He won't let it go How can I complain? They won't let it go They won't let it go They won't let it go How can I complain?

George was born in Pattison, dead west of Sugar Land Toe-headed boy to fill the void his parents couldn't span 6 years old, he saw the world and knew he wasn't blessed Couldn't hide as his keen eye refused the other sex Gone, gone, gone, gone At 17 his father cast his shadow on his bed A military man "Get out and don't come back" he said Gone, gone, gone, gone Gone, gone, gone, gone Just past a score, George lost his only lover to the wind Found himself another but never made it home again Gone, gone, gone, gone 35 he had the drive, they taught him 'bout the gun Secret secrets were his work until the work was done Gone, gone, gone, gone Gone, gone, gone, gone 44 and countin', there's never any change While others grew until they died, he could only rearrange Gone, gone, gone, gone 60 and still runnin', got the sickness on his tail Release him Lord, release him, Lord, send him back to hell Gone, gone, gone, gone Gone, gone, gone, gone

Slow Slow like your ways Slow like the days At the bottom of the well Slept Slept for a week Slept in the breeze Bound by the bell Plans Even best laid Wither and fray Fall to the wind Faith Sweet as peach pie AIn't worth a dime Won't wash your sins Don't let your actions Sign the deed Fore past hesitations Take the lead Forgive or forget It don't matter to me Those past allegations Never reap Wasted, wastin' Hung our dreams on the line Patience never tasted So bitter or so dry If there's a lesson here Someone open my eyes Guess it's true what they say In the end, everything will be alright
