Poets & Old Souls - Martin Bryan Lyrics

Poets & Old Souls

I can string some words together, make 'em pretty and make 'em rhyme
There's some hard miles on my heart chasin' this crazy dream of mine
Left everyone I love, hurt everyone I know
It's a lonely road for poets and old souls

You take your pain, you write it down
You sing your songs, word slowly gets around
And there's some that think it's easy, I'm here to tell you it just ain't so
It's a lonely road for poets and old souls
Well, this old guitar's seen me at my whiskey bottom worst
And lookin' back on it's a wonder I didn't wind up in a hearse
You see the part of me that shines, but there's a lot that you don't know
It's a lonely road for poets and old souls

You take your pain, you write it down
You sing your songs, word slowly gets around
Well, there's some that think it's easy, I'm here to tell you it just ain't so
It's a lonely road for poets and old souls

You take your pain, you write it down
Been ten years, word's finally gettin' 'round
There's some that think it's easy, I'm here to tell you it just ain't so
It's a lonely road for poets and old souls

If you come in thinkin' it's easy, I'm here to tell you it just ain't so
It's a lonely road for poets and old souls
