Will Hoge – The Reckoning lyrics
[Verse 1]
There's some seeds you plant that never grow
They fly away when the first winds start to blow
And what's the point of holdin' on
To anything that might be gone too soon?
You can try to fight the truth
But time will always show you proof
The reckoning

[Verse 2]
There's a gold watch in my dresser drawer
It's the same one that my daddy wore
Back when he was thirty-two
When the world was bright but not brand-new
The missing laughter of a messed up kid
All the secrets that you can't keep hid
Oh, the reckoning

And I fought for years to save [?]
And it's killin' me [?]
Oh but what kills me the most
Is knowin' you don't even wanna change

[Verse 3]
I see that sunburn on your left hand
The one that used to hold your wedding band
You seem older than you ought'a be
And in your eyes I hear the saddest symphony
And I know you can hear it now
You finally caught up in that hollow sound
Oh, the reckoning

Caught up in the reckoning
Can't get out the other side
Caught up in the reckoning
