All Our Lives

This song is by Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and appears on the album Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness (2014).

I saw this old friend at the Eveleigh Bar
They fed and treated him so well
A heart so cold and words so blue
In a body home from hell

He said "If I could tell you one thing I would tell you this
There's only one mistake that I have made
It's giving up the music in my fingertips
By trying to get to heaven through my veins."

All our lives
I watch you search beneath the falling skies
This was no path to glory
You always walk before me
But you came back to warn me
All our lives

I saw this woman with tears in her eyes
Driving beside me yesterday
She turned her head then I turned mine
And I watched her drive away

I thought "If I could tell her something I would tell her this
There's only two mistakes that I have made
It's running from the people who could love me best
And trying to fix a world that I can't change."

All our lives
I watch you search beneath the falling skies
This was no path to glory
You always walk before me
But you came back to warn me
All our lives

All our lives

I remember being young and staring at my hands
In the middle of the night
The first light of the morning

A room like a church, voices down the hall
Barely made 'em out but sometimes you don't want to know

Now that I'm older I can tell you this
The mornings I miss but I don't really miss the voices

You've got a choice, I've got the hands
Skeleton and plans you've got to let them go

All our lives
I watch you search beneath the falling skies

All our lives
I watch you search beneath the falling skies
This was no path to glory
You always walk before me
But you came back to warn me
All our lives

All our lives
I watch you search beneath the falling skies
This was no path to glory
You always walk before me
But you came back to warn me
All our lives
