Stranded (Featuring Kimmie Rhodes)
Stranded on the roadside
Leaning ‘gainst a shot out sign
Knuckles full of black dirt
My eyes up towards the sky

Twenty years of trying
And again I’m right back here
Looking to the heavens
For a little luck to share

Chorus
Every time I close my eyes
I’m right back here again
Twenty-one and searching for
Life is where I’ve been


I still believe in beauty
It's just a little hard to see
And life's right where you leave it
She used to say to me

You can be so childlike
Innocent pure and clean
But your other side is darker
Tattooed scared and mean


Chorus
Every time I close my eyes
I’m right back here again
Twenty-one and searching for
Life is where I’ve been


Philosophy is nothing
But the twisted facts of life
Like adding understanding
Could make it all all right

You cant grow a garden
Where there isn't any light
When you finally find your road
The dream is out of sight


Chorus
Every time I close my eyes
I’m right back here again
Twenty-one and searching for
Life is where I’ve been


Failure’s just a state of mind
Between action, thought and rest
Given just a little time
You're sure to second guess

I guess I should just settle down
And do whatever's next
If I don’t pick up my pen
I’ll never pass the test

Chorus
Every time I close my eyes
I’m right back here again
Twenty-one and searching for
Life is where I’ve been
