Things We Find

Things We Find

Darlin’ it seems this road we’re on
Is always going up hill
I’m too tired to keep up with you
So I think I’ll just sit still

It’s not how fast you go that counts
It’s the progress that you make
And his hurry up life we lead
Is just more than I can take

Chorus:
I’m gonna gather me some moss
And I don’t care how much it costs
I want to see some grass
Growing beneath my feet
You tried so hard to get ahead
That you left me behind
Sometimes the things we’re looking for
Aren’t the things we find

You used to say we’d have it all
I guess most was not enough
Your war against imperfection
Finally took its toll on us

I hope you get where you’re going
But I doubt that you will stay
When you see what little you gained
For the things you threw away

Bridge:
I waited so long for you to slow down
That it was hard to believe when I found
I could learn to live without you
But that’s what I’m gonna do

Chorus:
I’m gonna gather me some moss
And I don’t care how much it costs
I want to see some grass
Growing beneath my feet
You tried so hard to get ahead
That you left me behind
Sometimes the things we’re looking for
Aren’t the things we find
