  • Well its been a year and there so much to tell
    Been doing alright in spite of myself
    Just wish I could stop feeling bad when I pray
    But I know I'm gonna get there someday

    Got that job I was dreaming about
    Sometimes its tough traveling around
    But who I wanna be still seems so far away
    But I know I'm gonna get there someday

    glad I told you all I meant to
    While I had the chance
    Cause every moment I had with you
    Made me who I am

    by the way, I met someone new
    And wouldn't you know, she's a whole lot like you
    Still I ain't ready to settle down in one place
    But I know I'm gonna get there someday

    well I guess I'll be moving on
    I'll just leave these daisies by your stone
    And momma, I still miss you every day
    But I know I'm gonna get there someday

    when that'll be, guess only God can say
    But I know I'm gonna get there someday Writer/s: BRETT BEAVERS, DERIC RUTTAN, DIERKS BENTLEY
