Words and music amy ray

I pulled out with the mountain laurel blooming
On a dirt road that is soon to be paved
Down to the site of my original establishment
And the west end family grave

Cause one day moves into two
(one day moves into two)
And Im losing
Everything except for you
(everything except for you)
And I would sing you a song of devotion
(I would sing you a song of devotion)
Yeah thats what I should do
(thats what I should do)

Blood runs thick and when it rains it pours down
(blood runs thick)
On the family tree on the fields of war
(the family tree on the fields of war)
I spend my time being broken hearted and grieving bound
(I spend my time being broken hearted and grieving bound)
Yeah I havent much need to look forward

I just let a one day move into two
(one day moves into two)
Im losing
Everything except for you
(everything except for you)
I would sing you a song of devotion
(I should sing you a song of devotion)

Book of days
(book of days)
The way things lay
(the way things lay)
Thats just space and time
(thats just space and time)
I gave it up
(I gave it up)
All for a love
(all for a love)
That wont be defined
(that wont be defined)

Ive had enough temporary acquisition
Building fences for no gain
(building fences for no gain)
Taking dead trees down before the winter freeze
(taking dead trees down before the winter freeze)
I said let em rot and fall where they may

Just let one day move into two
(one day moves into two)
Im losing
Everything except for you
(everything except for you)
Ah yeah
I would sing you a song of devotion
(I would sing you a song of devotion)
Thats what I should do
(I gotta let them fall where they may)
(cause one day moves into two)
Its the book of days
(Im losing)
Its the way things lay
(everything except for you)
Now thats just space and time
(I)
(I would sing you a song)
I gave it up
(of devotion)
All for your love
(yeah)
Thats what I should do
(thats what I should do)
Thats what I should do
(thats what I should do)
Yeah
Thats what I should do
(thats what I should do)
