lyrics

The Future Was a Long Time Ago

Salt is on the air and the marsh is on the breeze, in the tall grass cicadas sing low. Down Plumb Nearly Lane there’s a cross and plastic wreath. When the past goes it leaves a big hole, the future was a long time ago.

So I just stay still in place and watch the years just erase all that I’ve loved and that I’ve known.

Time won’t leave nothing, it won’t preserve a thing because each passing life takes its toll. I can’t sleep with the memory of her breath upon my face. When the past goes it leaves a big hole, the future was a long time ago.

So I just stay still in place and watch the years just erase all that I’ve loved and that I’ve known.

The ghosts are on the marsh and the Honda’s on the heap that the kudzu has long overgrown, I’m bent in half carrying all these memories as they fade. When the past goes it leaves a big hole, the future was a long time ago.
