Greensky Bluegrass - Reverend Lyrics




Couple beers with the reverend
Am I safe from the night?
More money to the system
Am I free from the fight?

I left myself behind in my home town
Went looking for a new place, you won't find me around

I made peace with my country
Though I never could believe
Somebody else's struggle
Is the reason that I flee

There's none that miss me, they never thought I'd go
So many things about me, nobody seems to know

Can you carry more
If you leave me back?
What's left to take?
Whose lives come last?

I can find fewer reasons
Against the need to run
Than my hands to bear a burden
A weight I can't overcome

There are reasons I worry, there are answers I fear
Is there love enough to save us? Will it find us out here?

Can you carry more
If you leave me back?
What's left to take?
Whose lives come last?

I counted my fortunes
With time left to spare
My doubts all outnumbered
Regardless of what's fair

Need to find a way to carry myself through the day
Let grief lie behind me and learn to look away

Can you carry more
If you leave me back?
What's left to take?
Whose lives come last?
