Wreck

I had a brilliant plan wherein I was going to write an entire post about the power of feedback, but then I got sidetracked by a song that refused to be silenced, so I thought I'd share that with you instead. :)

I so appreciate all of the love you guys showed me this week in McKinney, TX.  As a token of my gratitude, here are the lyrics to a brand new song--coming soon to a live show near you!

I'd tell you the story, but I said it all in the song.  Here's "Wreck":

Let's set the record straight
Let's strip away the gloss
You weren't a legend or a hero
Just a little boy lost
And I was your compass for a few months

You had the voice of angels
The stature of a king
And every time you cracked a smile
It was the most beautiful thing
Like God himself had smiled at me

CHORUS
And oh, oh, oh we shone 
Bright like falling stars
But oh, oh, oh I fell
Harder from the start
And oh, oh, oh I know
Every landing smarts
Your gravity, it shattered me
And now I'm just a wreck

Let's lose the pretty words
Let's call it what it was
We were fast friends; we were best friends
We were something beyond
You were a lonely soul and I had left a light on

Your heart is on display
You're never watered down
I'm a sucker for straight shooters
You're the straightest in town
But you let fear keep you chained to the ground
And you lie just like a convict when attraction comes around

CHORUS
And oh, oh, oh we shone 
Bright like falling stars
But oh, oh, oh I fell
Harder from the start
And oh, oh, oh I know
Every landing smarts
Your gravity, it shattered me
And now I'm just a wreck

Looking back, we were a terrible match
Your fragile hope, my steely cynicism; both of us damaged
And I don't know if I miss you 
Now that you're gone
Maybe I just miss the way I felt in your arms

CHORUS
'Cause oh, oh, oh we shone 
Bright like falling stars
But oh, oh, oh I fell
Harder from the start
And oh, oh, oh I know
Every landing smarts
Your gravity, it shattered me
And now I'm just a wreck
