The Curve

 

 

 

 

(VERSE)

Theres some things that just happen

And throw a wrench in your plans

And you come out dirty on the other side

And you call yourself a man

I held your heart like a wounded dove and I tried to fix your wing

But all that time I spent alone I tried

To teach it how to fly right back to me

 

(CHORUS)

I never wanted my condition, to find its way to you

I guess I’ll never know how much you knew until we're through

And I think about that love we shared like a panhandle road

And every curve we took led to the unknown 

Every curve we took led to the unknown

 

(VERSE)

Some people come for comfort, some people come for sand

They walk along the beach and pick up shells upon the land

I never did quite understand why you longed for the coast

You said it reminds you of those long walks

On the levy on those Mississippi mornings

 

(CHORUS)

I never wanted my condition, to find its way to you

I guess I’ll never know how much you knew until we're through

And I think about that love we shared like a panhandle road

And every curve we took led to the unknown 

Every curve we took led to the unknown

(VERSE)

Some people live to gamble, they lay it all on the line

They pray that those 3 seven’s fall in place side-by-side

One-armed bandits, waiting on bullets

And that classic dead man’s hand

Well I’d rather make my own luck

Being right here playing these songs where I stand(

 

(SOLO)

(CHORUS)

I never wanted my condition, to find its way to you

I guess I’ll never know how much you knew until we're through

And I think about that love we shared like a panhandle road

And every curve we took led to the unknown 

Every curve we took led to the unknown

(VERSE)

Theres some things that just happen

And throw a wrench in your plans

And you come out dirty on the other side

And you call yourself a man

I held your heart like a wounded dove and I tried to fix your wing

But all that time I spent alone I tried

To teach you how to fly right back to me
