Lyrics written by Robert M. Duvall
I wanted more than I asked for
I stayed longer than I should
I thought I had all the answers
For all the ones….misunderstood
For years and years I looked for solace
In all the things that causes
The devil walks here beside me.
In these shadows hide my shame.
I threw away the things that mattered
Some days I find it hard to stand
Still reaching out to find the ladder
That leads me back to the plan
Too speak the words, “I am sorry”
Seems like an easy thing to say
So many lives have been taken,
Never to be seen again.
They say that time is borrowed
And we must all pay for it someday
The minutes and hours burn so quickly
Time takes these ashes all away.
