Run It All Together

Album: Wheels Of The City (2019)

  • Those buildings are standing
    Even though folks ain't worked there forever
    The jobs washed up from the Ohio to the Mississippi River
    Working on water
    Acting like they'd live forever

    Those ships are moving
    and they're working heavy cargo but it ain't me
    Pushing the water where I should know I should never be
    Arkansas on my mind
    Can't seem to run it all together

    That bridge has been breaking its back
    For as long as I've ever known
    It's all inspired and crazy
    But I know it's sinking like a stone

    Never saw you go
    And I know that'll haunt me forever
    Try to grow
    But I never meant to grow away from you

    I was lost in the making
    Forgot how to run it all together
    I was lost in the making
    Forgot how to run it all together
    I was lost in the making
    Forgot how to run it all together
