lyrics

Well strange the way it seems
I changed horses in midstream
And it took a while to get back to my pace
Then the stream changed up with me
And I’m broken company
And I hate the way it slides across your face

Well I tried to change your mind
Tried to live the way I like
But the years keep slipping off behind my back
And I’m graying in my beard
And I’m finding it hard to hear
When you ask me if I ever loved you back

I did the right thing the wrong way
Tried to take a shortcut to the long way
I did the right thing the wrong way

And with reasons off I went
Into your winter of discontent
Maybe not the kindest thing I swear I know
Sometimes I lie away at night
Wishing I could make it right
But that ship sailed and I just watched it go

I did the right thing the wrong way
Tried to take a shortcut to the long way
I did the right thing the wrong way

Someday I’ll be on a train
Or go out walking in the rain
And I’ll see you with a new and better man
And I hope you can forget and love again

I did the right thing the wrong way
Tried to take a shortcut to the long way
I did the right thing the wrong way
