He said he had to stop
He hadn't had a drop of anything
Stronger than coffee
In ten months, three weeks
And one long day

He pushed away his plate
Said it's better late than never done
When it comes to getting right
It took a while but I saw the light

He said some things that cast long shadows
That I never will out run
And every day I spend living

With ghosts of all the things that I've done wrong
Grab a chair 'cause the list is long
I can write you a country song
About the reasons I'll be going home
To a house full of memories
Things I wish I'd done differently
And when I'm feeling weak they keep me strong
Ghosts of all the things that I've done wrong

He said there's a spot of paint
And it just ain't the right shade
But it covers up the hole I made
Where I broke my wrist the night she left
And there's a lot of friends
That I ain't seen in a lot of years
But some are still hanging around
In old pictures I can't take down

He said some things that cast long shadows
That I never will out run
And every day I do battle

With ghosts of all the things that I've done wrong
Grab a chair 'cause the list is long
I can write you a country song
About the reasons I'll be going home
To a house full of memories
Things I wish I'd done differently
And when I'm feeling weak they keep me strong
Ghosts of all the things that I've done wrong

I got a heart full of memories
Things I wish I'd done differently
And when I'm feeling weak they keep me strong
Ghosts of all the things I've done wrong

He said he had to stop
He hadn't had a drop of anything
Stronger than coffee
In ten months, three weeks
And one long day
