Waking Up The Echoes Lyrics - American Aquarium

American Aquarium Chords


How's your Mom and them? I haven't seen your folks in ages
She was always kind, had the best sweet tea high school me ever tasted
Weddings and funerals used to always get me down
These days they seem to be the only thing that ever bring me back to town

And I wish you'd have called me
Maybe I could have talked you down
But the thing that I wish most of all
Is that you were still around
I can't help but laugh about all the trouble that we got
Into in the back of that Short Sugar's parking lot
All the life we lived, all the plans that we'd discuss
Before Milwaukee's Best snuck up and got the best of us

And I wish you'd have called me
Maybe I could have talked you down
But the thing that I wish most of all
Is that you were still around

I still hear your voice when I cross that county line
Waking up the echoes in the canyons of my mind
Hold on to the good times, leave the bad ones for the plow
It ain't goodbye forever friend, it's just goodbye for now

And I wish you'd have called me
Maybe I could have talked you down
But the thing that I wish most of all
Is that you were still around
I wish that you were still around
