Quiet Conviction

from by Oxford Blue



you play a cheap guitar, and your hair it is long
theres a quiet conviction in your country song
so you croon, you croon, you croon
but your heart, still it weeps
how many secrets can one man keep

and you often play to no one, but you don’t really seem to mind
when you’re singing your sorrows theres a new hope you’ll find

and you start anew every day, but it always seems to fade
back to where you left it but you didn’t mean it that way
so you move, you move, you move
but your mind still it keeps
how many dreams will haunt you in your sleep

and you often move so slowly but you don’t really seem to mind
when you’re ringing on that bell, there’s a new love you’ll find

so you take your love by the hand, and you lead her away
back to when you loved her but that was another day
so you swoon, you swoon, you swoon
but your flame still it fades
how many heartaches can one man take
