I Am Ready

 

There's no way around listnin'

To that ol' lonesome sound of missin'

A heartbeat in two

 

For hard time words don't mujster

The deep cryin' hurt of wonder

Of lost and not found

 

            My sisters oh my brothers

            I am ready, I am ready

 

I played every devil wishin'

For all man's evils and riches

Well it just ain't enough

 

            My sisters oh my brothers

            I am ready, I am ready

 

Ol' letters on the wall standin'

Ol' pictures down the hall landin'

Well they just ain't the same

 

(Chorus)

 

                        My home my home is another

                        One of all, one of all, take me

 

(Chorus)

 

(Repeat Bridge)

 

One of all oh one of all, take me

There's no way around...
