​Nashville

This song is by Tyler Lyle and appears on the album Inland Islands / Bad Things (& Collard Greens) (2010).

I've been killing time
I've been killing time
With my paperbacks and my box of wine
I've been killing time

'Cause our hearts too big
Our hearts too big
To try and fit it in my head
Our hearts too big

Well I forget the dates and facts
But I'll remember Nashville 'til I die
Though I could forget the pattern of your dress
I haven't yet but I might

'Cause the world spins on without our permission
We can hold our breath and keep on wishing
Or we can take it for a ride

Well it's all right
No it's all right
You kissed my lips and you changed your mind
But it's all right

'Cause the sun is high
And the sun is high
And the sky is blue and the world is wide
And the sun is high

Well I've only known two teachers in my life
One is summer and one is fall
All these statues in my head
They cannot stand against that drunken cannonball

Well the world spins on without our permission
We can hold our breath and keep on wishing
Or we can take it for a ride

When the brown returns to the leaves
I feel a law that's written inside me
When that thought becomes too much to hold
You let it go

They say that time takes time
So I'll take my time
With my paperbacks and my box of wine
I'll take my time
