Lyrics

Well, there was tears
Check
There was whiskey
Check
There was tired eyes from cryin'
and a tired mind from tryin'
and a smile to hide away a frown

There was a bar stool
Check
There was a drunk fool
Check
Broken up for nothing more than a dream that we could not afford
Now I'm wasted on another pay check

I've got a lot to do
To keep myself from missing you
Nights turn to days and blue skies turn to grey
And tear drops fall for your memory
And I've got a lot to do
Well to keep myself from missing you

And I stumble home
Check
To a broken home
Check
And dreams belong to this address
But the constant need to progress
To another place we both didn't want to go

And I'm lonesome
Check
And I'm thirsty
Check
And If I could see the sacred signs that could ease my trouble mind
And point me to the love I need tonight

I've got a lot to do
To keep myself from missing you
Nights turn to days and blue skies turn to grey
And tear drops fall for your memory
And I've got a lot to do
Well to keep myself from missing you

To keep myself from missing you
