Alison Krauss – Sinking Stone lyrics

I called you today
Wanting a change
I never meant to hurt anyone
Never meant for you to pull out your guns
But feelings wont stay
In this meager parade
You're beating to a different drum
In this lack of all the luster we've become

Save your breath
You know we both, tried our best
But it's leaving

This might as well be done
I am falling with the sun
When the hour's getting sour, wont save with time
I'm waving off the one
Who wouldn't let me run
Though we tried it's a lie
I can't keep dragging on
I'm untying this sinking stone

Don't sit on the fence
Living past tense
Holding on to wishes and words
Folding out a picture we blur
Cause here in the end
I'm losing a friend
Fighting back a tear when it burns
Dividing up the pieces that we were

Save your breath
You know we've both
Tried our best
But it's leaving

This might as well be done
I'm falling with the sun
When the hours getting sour won't save with time
I'm waving off the one
Who wouldn't let me run
Though we tried, it's a lie I can't keep dragging on
I'm untying this sinking stone...

I can't say you're all alone
I'm accepting what I own
Here lies a blanket not a bandage

I'm unable to restrain
When the wake that we became
Is drawing me under

This might as well be done
I'm falling with the sun
When the hours getting sour won't save with time
I'm waving off the one
Who wouldn't let me run
Though we tried, it's a lie I can't keep dragging on

This might as well be done
I'm falling with the sun
When the hours getting sour won't save with time
I'm waving off the one
Who wouldn't let me run
Though we tried, it's a lie I can't keep dragging on
I'm untying this sinking stone...
