When that train comes you'll be 500 miles from where you left me
I don't understand what makes a man
What makes a man fall to his knees
And slave to a life that he doesn't believe in?
I know I heard a man says he does what he can to get by
Do you remember when you were two feet tall?
Your momma held you in the arms of an angel
She pointed to the stars, and said
"Look how far you've come"
It's a long way home when you're on your own
But you've got angels by your side
A nickel and a dime in the jukebox and you'll be fine
What is life?
Love this life
Don't you throw away the Morning Rain
In the month of May
It's those little things
What is life?
Oh love, my life
Don't you throw away the smell of the woods after it rains
That Holy, Holy reverie when all is as it should be
All those little things
And we get by
