The Groove Of The Record

Album: Death Valley (2020)
  • The shadows tell me the sun's getting low
    And my demons come out at nighttime I know
    I pick up a record I thought was a friend
    Over and over and over tonight it will spin

    And the groove of the record is worn and it's weary
    And the song that I play well it's makin' me teary
    Oh I know I need a new one I see clearly
    And the groove of the record is worn and it's weary

    I flirt with regret I toy with obsession
    Spiraling further down as I look for a lesson
    But searchin' in the wrong place takes me low
    And round and round and round like the record I go

    And the groove of the record is worn and it's weary
    And the song that I play well it's is making me teary
    If I don't get a new one I'll pay dearly
    Yes the groove of the record is worn and it's weary

    Do you find your old ways hard to die?
    I keep on doing things that only make me cry, they make me cry!

    I wake in the morning and I pray
    And I make up my mind today is the day
    Oh a new record I have got to try
    I guess the price if I don't got to high

    And the groove of the record is worn and it's weary
    And the song that I play well it's making me teary
    What it takes to change is anyone's theory
    And the groove of the record is worn and it's weary

    And the groove of the record is worn and it's weary
    Yes the groove of the record is worn and it's weary Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
