SMALL MERCIES It’s getting late, and I should go home but there’s nothing there for me except being alone. She’ll be asleep – or she’ll just pretend. We go through this tired routine time and again. It’s nothing different, it’s just how we are So much is unspoken when it comes to the heart It could be we’re afraid of what we might say Maybe there’ll come a time, but not today We raised a family – now the kids are all grown Each one facing life out on their own It gives us something to talk about – we say they’re all doing well You learn in time it’s not just about yourself There’s a song on the radio behind the bar takes me back to those days – my first love, my first car. Out driving towards some future that I couldn’t dream No I’m not a believer, but thank God for small mercies GUITAR SOLO It’s getting late, and I should go home.
