  • Time of day I can't recall
    The kind of thing that takes it's toll
    Over years and over time
    Over smiles and over wine
    All in all it wasn't bad
    All in all it wasn't good
    But I still care
    That's the problem with the days
    They're never long enough to say
    What it is you never said
    All the books you never read
    I throw myself into the wind
    Hoping somebody will pick me up
    And carry me again

    Where are you now
    Do you let me down
    Do you make me grieve for you
    Do I make you proud
    Do you get me now
    Am I your pride and joy
    I believe this to be true
    Nothing sacred nothing new
    No one tells you when its time
    There are no warnings only signs
    And you know that you're alone
    You're not a child anymore
    But you're still scared
    All your mountains turn to rocks
    All your oceans turn to drops
    They are nothing like you thought
    Can't be something you are not
    Life is not a looking glass
    Don't get tangled in your past
    Like I am learning not to

    Where are you now
    Do you let me down
    Do you make me grieve for you
    Do I make you proud
    Do you get me now
    Am I your pride joy Writer/s: Brandi M. Carlile, Phillip John Hanseroth, Timothy Jay Hanseroth
