A few wrong turns
I don?t mind talkin? about tonight
That man called me a hypocrite,
But I?m too damned tired to fight.
So this, my solitary flight
Came on crashing to the ground,
Thought all my friends had long gone home
But Jesus stuck around ?

Now I?m tired of wishes, empty of dreams ?
I spent them all like cash in nasty bars.
We all look good in soft focus,
But the mirror ain?t so kind
The way it tell me I might have strayed too far

CHORUS) You know I?m thinking ?bout
Looking skyward, looking up
To the friend I used to know.
Went out for a Sunday Drive
And that ride left me with such a
Long walk home ?

The loudest voice comes from a pig-headed fool,
Wine and whiskey pickle the truth.
You?ve got a fine way of not remembering
Baptizing only works when you want it to ?


This endurance test of innocence
Builds shaky dreams into days and years
Pride is smaller than kindness
But I?ve seen so much more pride
Oh Lord, can you toss me a coat?
I said it?s cold out here ?

Trace the tired lines of a pensive face
Lost my footing, fell from grace ?
If you want to go down, I mean really go down,
The ditch will meet you half way
