lyrics

From all the pain and wrong
And no answers in the booth
I got these simple songs
Just like Willie
Three chords and the truth
They sell you happiness
And you buy it up so gracefully
I fight it off my best
But, maybe they're right
Debt is a luxury

I see the morning light
I've been up all night
Searching for a feeling
In this whiskey drinking

I'm sorry if this sounds
Like a million songs you've heard before
I steal like a frown
All that you think has been thought once or more
Probably by someone
Who had no means to show it to the world
Probably a woman
But he's held her down since she was a girl

I see the morning light
I've been up all night
Searching for a feeling
But I'm just chasing dreams

I feel like the moon is rising
But I see that bright sun shinning
I feel like the moon is rising
And I see that bright sun dying
