lyrics

Give me a moment while I catch my breath, start this old tale up again
It all ended so long ago can't remember where to begin
We were young, well, younger then, left where life had spat us out
Clutching at nothing in the darkest corners of a small north Texas town

I don't lie, I just tell my side of the story
I don't hate you, in truth I find you a little boring
And I don't amplify my hurt, I don't need to make it worse
To make a long story short

We had a path, a place, a purpose, a cause and an effect
We had a million scattered reasons things would work out the way we said
But if they say that fate's a waste then trust must be a bust
After all, our mouths got full, our heads got dull, and our bodies old

Now I don't lie, I just tell my side of the story
And I don't hate you, in truth I find you a little boring
I don't amplify my hurt, I don't need to make it worse
To make a long story short

Give me a moment while I tip my hat to the long road of the past
All the things that seem to matter count only if they last
We talk less and less each year about the way that time moves
I've shaken it in a lot of ways, can we say the same for you?

Well I don't lie, I just tell my side of the story
And I don't hate you, in truth I find you a little boring
Well I don't amplify my hurt, I don't need to make it worse
To make a long story short
