Adam's Song

This song is by Rodney Crowell and appears on the album Fate's Right Hand (2003).

We don't want to say goodbye we don't want to feel that empty
But it's time to face the dawn head on
Then there's something in the wind when the days go getting shorter
And the nights run cold and clear down here

Takin' each new day to give what we need to do our part
We'll keep learning how to live with a lifelong broken heart

And we never will forget it's a privilege to remember
The sound of days gone past will last
And we can see you in the stars come some vivid night in November
And with the last few leaves that fall recall

Surely each new day will give what we need to do our part
To keep learning how to live with a lifelong broken heart

Oh you beautiful one so clearly a gift life had designs of its own
To set you adrift

So go lightly where you must travel soft upon new wings
You will never be alone go on
When we cannot understand when we cannot find new meaning
We'll seek out the ones you loved and love

Taking each new day to give what we need to do our part
We'll keep learning how to live with a lifelong broken heart
We're just learning how to live with a lifelong broken heart
