A Year on the Road

I know things changed but I’m not sure when.

I guess you’d call this regression

I convinced myself that I’m brave enough for all of this

The late nights and the long drives start to get to me.

I’m just so tired

My body feels rejected and I can’t say that I blame it.

My heart keeps saying stay young.

My lower back seems to disagree.

I spent this year as a ghost and I’m not sure what I’m looking for

I spent the winter writing songs about getting better.

And if I’m being honest, I’m getting there
