Everyday I swim an ocean, fightin your memory like endless waves
I surrender to the truth, I'll always love you, but I know someday
I'm gonna reach the banks of a distant shore, where I won't miss you anymore

Once in a while I ride the river, of whiskey wishes from an old shot glass
But the way it used to be follows me downstream, so I keep knockin em back
Till I reahc the banks of a distant shore, where I won't miss you anymore

Someday I'm gonna get there, It migfht take my last prayer

One of these days I'm gonna cross that ocean,some sweet angel will set me free
And they'll tell my stories, sing a song about glory, and read Psalm 23
When I reach the banks of that distant shore, where I won't miss you anymore

Gonna rest my soul in the hands of the lord, where I won't miss you anymore
