lyrics

Started from a prophecy of she
Mama told daddy, gonna have me
Two more kids like the dust and the wind arrived every three
In the strange north woods
Every season that we could stayed wild and free
Life’s not a line you’re gonna find
Driving or dreaming…

Sure I’d miss the old time comfort of the Michigan line
Taking haste with the travel over dirt and gravel to
The southwest sky
Under beating heart sun memorize each one
Remember me by
He and his wife work in young hearted country
It’s so hard sometimes…

Now I miss you more and more
Nothing like it was before
Or how, It Used to Be
Now I miss you more and more
Nothing like it was before
Or how, It Used to Be

Last I heard, they’d struggled and stirred
In the Midwest heartland
Graveyards afar, hearts with scars, mines buried in the sand
Love comes and goes, it’s like the white of the snow
Till the springtime cries
Each set of lives tighten up your fists, and wets your eyes…

Now I miss you more and more
Nothing like it was before
Or how, It Used to Be
Now I miss you more and more
Nothing like it was before
Or how, It Used to Be"
