Britta Lee Shain Between the River and the Road Song Lyrics

OFFICIAL WEBSITE FOR BRITTA LEE SHAIN

I'll Be Around

I’LL BE AROUND

It’s a long way home
When you’re riding all alone
After living a love that’s a lie
It’s a short slip to the bottle
With your foot on the throttle
And you can’t see the road for the fear in your eye

You’re barreling down that
Long lonesome highway
Heading for the outskirts of town
Hoping that when you’ll be arriving...
I’ll be around

It’s a steep climb up
When you’re out of luck
After selling your soul down the river
And just a quick trip
To a sinking ship
To be with the one who still
Makes your heart quiver

You’re barreling down that
Long lonesome highway
Heading for the outskirts of town
Hoping that when you’ll be arriving...
I’ll be around

There’s something so familiar here
Something just smells right
You’ll bury your sorrows in my beer
Till dawn’s naked light

And it won’t take long
To forget that song
She was singing from your lap of luxury
And it’ll be the twelfth of never
Before you say forever
To another girl so pretty

It’s a hundred miles to forgiveness
And it’s none of my business
But I’m really wishing you would stay here
‘Cause it’s a split second to heaven
When you’re making love again
With the one who will always hold you dear

You’re barreling down that
Long lonesome highway
Heading for the outskirts of town
Hoping that when you’ll be arriving...
I’ll be around
