This Ride

Album: Little Seeds (2016)
  • This Ride, what a ride what a ride, what a ride
    It hurts and it scars and it aches and it twists
    It starves and it laughs and it balls up its fists
    It's crooked and it hollows and it soothes and it breaks
    And it grows and it ponders and it toils and it takes

    It stretches and it breathes and it is lonely and long
    This Ride, what a ride what a ride, what a ride
    It calls and it follows and it breaks down your door
    It bleeds you dry and it asks you for more
    Shows up at your work and it makes you insane
    And it loses your keys and leaves you crying in the rain

    It's costly and violent and it's a sorrowful song
    But I am thankful by and by my love
    And if I'm talking too much just give me a shove
    If I'm walking too fast maybe pick it on up
    It's just like Old Yeller and Lonesome Dove

    When you hate how it ends, but you can't get enough
    This ride
    It lifts and it gives and it singles you out
    It shames and it blames and forgives and it doubts
    It inspires and it opens our eyes and it heals

    And it coughs and it slips and it falls and it steals
    Your memory your dignity your husbands and mothers Writer/s: CARY ANN HEARST, MICHAEL TRENT ROBINSON
