08. Poor Boy

Bullet
by Mat Kearney



 

like a breath of fresh air and the wind at my back
toe to heel with strong strides taking miles off the map
in this journey called life where iíve walked so far
under the heat of your sun and shine of your stars
step by step iíve crept iíve crawled and iíve run
felt the palm of your hand and the barrel of death's gun
i ran for my stood strong through strife
from a miscarried live to waiting for my life like
i heard it sung a thousand strong all night long
heard heavens bell gong something its like
iíve been there in total despair
now iíve tasted and iíve touched
a breath of fresh air

Ďcause i do live and i hope and pray
for something better and brighter today
for something there for something there

Ďcause i was just a poor boy living in poor world
but you gave me more love that set me free
Ďcause i was just a poor boy living in a poor world
but you have gave me more love that set me free

like road trips on open roads
windows down sun setting a fresh new clothes
shoes off so you can stop reflect on all these paths unfolding
with these staffs that are pulling in this world so controlling
its not always best to take the interstate
sometimes the most is on the windy coast way
Ďcause wide is the path pulling astray
narrow is truth in these days
but all the while i hear a still small voice say
you climbed the cliffs rocked the desert on your very own
swam the seas, sang the songs with the sweetest tones
the beaches youíve combed moons youíve roamed
but all the while a voice calls you home

like a coming of age on the road less traveled
from the concrete streets to the back woods gravel
from the cage to the stage as my wings unravel
you won the war though iím still fighting battles
Ďcause iíve hoped and iíve fallen
iíve ran and iíve stalled
iíve hung up and iíve called
iíve laughed and iíve balled
but through it all iím standing tall
Ďcause i heard your call, sing it out ya'll
