Turn away from the pain you don't want Turning down to avoid them when they call Strange words I heard a long long time ago
I wish I could back to a summer time I knew more than twenty years ago can't lay between the sheets we lie underneath the maple tree now
now I can't smile
lying in the grass with the wind around us as we smile and talk listen to your Grandma sing those country songs She'd tell us how the maple turns to fire every four years we'd lay in the grass all summer long just to watch the autumn come around. . .
I can't smile I can't smile
now I live alone and your so far away Yeah I call you every year just around the holidays I still see you in the night lying above me in the grass. . .
I can't smile
turn away from the pain you don't want Turning down to avoid them when they call I can't believe this letter that said you died I think I'm gonna go back to the house in North Carolina
and lay in the backyard get drunk and let the leaves just bury me bury me. . .
