Josh Rouse – Women And Men lyrics

The current will rise much faster
Makes it harder to find what I'm after...

The water's up, water's down and I can't swim...
When I am lost and you are not, then no one wins...

Our babies have known no father
Makes it harder to call
I don't bother
So, bottle up, bottle down, is how I live
The money's gone
Just one more song before I turn in.

But you won't see me
'Cause I won't be there to
Help you asleep when you get scared
It's the absence
You're afraid and the night
It approaches but I'm still a state away
Yeah, it's the absence; you're afraid...

I can't erase what the past is
It's time to face circumstances
Sun comes up, sun goes down and I begin
The days grow long as I trek on and I hate knowing...

That you won't see me
'Cause I won't be there to
Help you asleep when you get scared...
It's the absence; you're afraid and the night
It approaches, but I'm still a state away...
Yeah, it's the absence you're afraid...of the night...
We're surviving but it's still from day to day...

It's nice to come home for a weekend...
The children have grown, how I've missed them...

As I pull up, you walk out and we smile again...
The grass needs cut, cuddled up just woman and man...
