I know the reason you were sad for that whole season and I I can't hold an ounce of blame You told the story of the riches and the glory you saw Hidden behind the savior's name I felt the spirit, I thought I was getting near it when it Pulled the breath right from my lungs So maybe later we can do ourselves a favor, well the The river's ripe, we'll dive right in So come on now, shout it out It'll never be this good again Just close your eyes on this long car ride We could be anywhere at all We passed the mission and we had to ask the question is this A once in a lifetime kind of thing Everything was new now, I had let go feeling blue somehow and All my blood had turned from black to red The highway's a ribbon, it's a gift that we are given and well Who are we to argue that right now? I felt our last time, it was resting there on my mind like a Cool drink of water in a drought So come on now, shout it out It'll never be this good again Just close your eyes on this long car ride We could be anywhere at all Just close your eyes on this long car ride We don't need anything at all I know the reason you were sad for that whole season and I I can't hold an ounce of blame
