lyrics

A Rodeo With No Cowboys

I can’t escape this sadness that’s settled in my chest
No matter how many bottles I collect
But when I’m not drinking
All I’m doing is thinking of you
And how the hell I’m gonna make it through

Those August afternoons beneath the mulberry tree
Are fading memories today
I gave up on praying
I always knew that you weren’t staying for good
But I would give up everything if you could

It’s like I’m at a rodeo with no cowboys
On a ship without a sail
A train with no conductor is bound to go off the rails
I’m like a phone with no reception or a home that’s lost it’s roof
I’d trade in every goddamn thing that I thought mattered
For one more moment
And that’s the truth

They say that time’s a healer, but time has taken you away
That ticking clock won’t make the hurtin’ stop
God knows I’m trying but these tears I’m crying won’t dry
Oh Lord I’m barely getting by

It’s like I’m at a rodeo with no cowboys
On a ship without a sail
A train with no conductor is bound to go off the rails
I’m like a phone with no reception or a home that’s lost it’s roof
I’d trade in every goddamn thing that I thought mattered
For one more moment
And that’s the truth

Paisley Fields New York

Paisley Fields writes country music. His songs are tender and authentic, but also pretty good with a joke.
