(Claire Ulanoff/Daniel Kleindienst)

Guess he could tell by the way I was drinking
My heart was hurt and I was sinking down
Toward the bottom
That's when the old man sitting next to me said
"You're just like I used to be but I learned
There's no comfort in a bottle"...he said

"Some hurts never heal, they only weigh you down
They're heavy and cold, like a stone
They'll bend you then they'll break you if you carry them around
'Stead of holding on you gotta learn to let go...of stones"

I've never been big on taking advice
But something in that old man's eyes
Made me a believer
Next day I carved her name on a rock
Drove down to the river, walked out on the dock
And I threw that stone in the water


I watched the ripples disappear then I cried one last tear
That's when I knew I'd be alright
The old man helped me change my life when he said...
