The Wanting
don’t sell the farm yet
believe in me
don’t break the branches off the family tree
I’m made of good wood
bend but don’t break
there’s only some much middle sons can take

my mechanics of coping
alcohol 
melatonin
ain’t enough to get you out of my life
you can grab you can hold it
but you’re gonna let go when
everything about it just ain’t right
so we’re just

dead fields sown in pain
I’m the last of your name
I can’t do it all
but I wouldn’t do it all the same
hard hearts soft on the past
well the hurt came quick 
bitterness came to last
you’re the one thing that I want
and the wanting’s all I’ll have

there are some deeds that can’t be undid
there are some moral slopes that can’t be unslid
did you do right by us
best it could be
you’ve done no harm 
but you’ve been no good to me

you only think you’re at home when
you’re out and making atonement
someday you got to make up your own mind
you’re never gonna get free of
the way you left me to need love
I returned the pain you paid us in kind
so we’re just

dead fields sown in pain
I’m the last of your name
I can’t do it all
but I wouldn’t do it all the same
hard hearts soft on the past
well the hurt came quick 
bitterness came to last
you’re the one thing that I want
and the wanting’s all I’ll have

upon the mount there was a sermon
and then there was a lesson learned
if I can only touch in third person
is this cause to be concerned
I want to know if the passing’s complete
and if it was a clean divide
is this your body 
is this where you’ll sleep
I want to love you
I want to tell you
but I can’t change my mind

so we’re just 
dead fields sown in pain
I’m the last of your name
I can’t do it all
but I wouldn’t do it all the same
hard hearts soft on the past
well the hurt came quick
bitterness came to last
I can’t forgive and forget
you took the one thing that i had
now you’re the one thing that i want
and the wanting’s all I’ll have.
