Every day I swim an ocean
Fightin' your memory like endless waves
I've surrendered to the truth, I'll always love you
But I know someday
I'm gonna reach the banks of a distant shore
Where I won't miss you anymore

Once in a while I'll ride the river
Of whiskey wishes from an old shot glass
But the way it used to be, follows me downstream
So I keep knockin' â??em back
Till I reach the distant shore
Where I won't miss you anymore

Someday I'm gonna get there
It might take my last prayer

But one these days I'm gonna cross that ocean
Some sweet angel will set me free
And they'll tell my story, sing a song about glory
And read Psalm 23
When I reach the banks of that distant shore
Where I won't miss you anymore

Gonna rest my soul in the hands of the lord
Where I won't miss you anymore
