lyrics

BETTER DAYS

In a place I can't erase
What it's come to, it's come to
Cold town broke me down
Took my pride away
How many times can you hit the wall
I ask you, I ask you
Brush it off, get back up
Still resolve to stay
I'm a stranger here
And it just gets rougher every day

I'm going back to the old ways now
I'm going home where things were easy for me
Bid me farewell boys and sing that song
Of life, love, and better days to be

Had a girl in a different place
So I asked her, I asked her
To be a wife and share the life
But, she couldn't see her way
Now I know, I did not know
What I had to, I had to
Going back to find that girl
And steal her heart away
I'm a stranger here
And it get's more lonely every day

In a place I can't erase
What it's come to, it's come to
Cold town broke my heart
And took my pride away
I'm a stranger here
And it just gets tougher every day

I'm going back to the old ways now
I'm going home where things were easy for me
Bid me farewell, boys and sing that song
Of life, love, and better days to be
