lifeblood: songs: lyrics: chuck will's widow


and even a sad song
is better than no song
at all

first chuck will's
widow of the season
i just figured out
that lonely bird's reason
for sleeping all day
and singing the same song
all night long

poor will is gone
the sadness is defeating
that aching in your heart
surely bears repeating
but it takes all day
to gather up the strength
to sing this song

i get lost
sad and lonely
and i count
the stars
above me
and i sing
when i should be sleeping
cause that's when
the world
hears my weeping

my neighbor's been shooting
they can't get enough
maybe i'm just
a billy goats gruff
around midnight
it'll get tough
when it gets quiet

it's just some old tin cans
and a buckshot gun
i should be flying down the road
in the warming sun
park my motorcycle
when the day is done
and say goodnight

but i get lost
sad and lonely
so i count
the stars
above me
and i sing
when i should be sleeping
cause that's when
the world
hears my weeping

even a sad song
is better than no song
at all

lose your will
lose your destination
voices in your head
keeping you guessing
if it all goes south
count it as a blessing
that's where you are
yeah that's where
where you are

if you get sad
lost and lonely
you can count
the stars above you
you can sing
when you should be sleeping
cause that's when
the world
hears your weeping
you can sing
when you should be sleeping
