Track Name: Shine Over the Mill
Well I paid my tab
And I gassed my car
And every house in town lit up when everything went dark
And my mind went numb
Like it does sometimes
Rolling through the pages of something better left behind
When I saw her there
Like she was before
Closed my eyes for a moment then and not a second more
And I hit the dirt,
Yeah, I stopped the show
But for the first time in forever I felt free enough
To finally let it go

When the thunder hit
And the iron fell
The sky above was littered up with smoke and burning shell
And they know what’s best
But I swear sometimes
Folks ‘round here don’t have the common sense to tell the time
I can hear them talk
I can taste their tears
As they fold their hands together and whisper secrets in my ear
And they call it faith
And they call it fear
Call it what you want, just stow it far away
Don’t keep it around here

Every star lined up for me tonight
Which one’s wrong and which one got it right?
They burned down the house upon the hill
Waymon’s gone and Maggie’s living still
But I ain’t felt a damn thing since the last
And Dutch ain’t signing nothing ’til it’s passed
The needle and the joys that break my heart
Tie the noose and know me when I start
Where’s my favourite shine over the mill
Moving back or am I standing still
