Ballad of Oregon

Of all the things that please you
You'd have thought I'd found a way
And thought I probably shouldn't think of it
I think most everyday
And yeah I know you hear my voice sometimes
But it's in a different way
Oh I feel you in my sleep these nights
And lose you come the day, a-hey hey

Why don't we go to Oregon and chase some kind of dream
The sky feels bigger in the country and I could use some room to breath
Well I never felt so lonely as I do when you're with me
I'll be whistlin bout my secrets, I'll get naked with the trees
I'll be breaking through the winter
Catching glimpses through the seams

One more time singin
Over the line that I
Want something that just
Isn't mine, but I do
Get into whiskey and I'll
Settle my mind, oh the
Way things was was treatin everyone just fine
And now, for you

Stretched out all my thoughts about as far as they can go
Let me occupy my mind, let me pacify my soul
And if I'm ever feelin crazy, finding words to let you know
Think I might stop my boyish struggle
Think I'd learn to let you go
Think I'd make it through the winter
Think I'd find some room to grow

And oh, these are the days we think we know
Twenty something I am losing touch with things I'll never live to hold

So I am sending out a message
I'll get through to you somehow
I'll surround myself with everything that occupies me now
I'll get drunk and I'll get reckless
I'll get scared and I'll get stoned
Oh I get scared when I'm alone
I guess I thought you would have known
I guess I figured it had show

But every time I leave you it gets difficult to find my way back home
(There's got to be another choice, there's got to be an answer on your own)
Every time I see you it gets difficult, to leave these things alone

One more time singin
Over the line that I
Want something that just
Isn't mine, but I do
Get into whiskey and I'll
Settle my mind, oh you
Get in the car I'll kiss my folks my plans goodbye
And say I do
