  1. Better Days

This song was a christmas present for you know who. I actually recorded the original version in about two hours when the studio was vacant. May my drumtracks never see the light of day.

Lyrics

You always were my favorite color
You shine on me like no other love
You've got me falling down, breaking down at your feet
For you I leave my light on
By your grace, shine on, shine on
Your blue eyes carry me up
and lift me to better days

I was floating through my life,
until you found me
soft words like daydreams, dripping in wine your tears unfold me.
whispering of my better days you lay me down.

We drank your father's wine
stumbled on your mama's porch
and when I look back now I use that time to carry me to better days
and the freedom of your laugh that night
tickled to my soul's delight
I would give all myself to keep your spirit free

I was floating through my life,
until you found me
soft words like daydreams, dripping in wine your tears unfold me.
whispering of my better days you lay me down when the world comes between us you lay me down.

Hope this Helps. This is the first time I have ever written out TAB, if anything is confusing just send me an email. Thanks,
