lyrics

The Fair Shake

There ain’t no easy way there ain’t no fair shake
and all the things you think that you deserve aren’t really yours to take
All the people that you know are only finding their own way
be gracious if you can and when you can’t let em walk away

There’s more power than you know in letting go
there’s more ways to solve a puzzle than you think
I’ve been chasing down these dead end roads
for as long as I remember
and tracing my steps back til I’ve got blisters on my feet
I’ve been working til I’m tired but I still can’t seem to keep
the lights on

There ain’t no easy way there ain’t no fair shake
and all the things you think that you deserve aren’t really yours to take
all the people that you know are only finding their own way
be gracious if you can and when you can’t let em walk away

I don’t wanna fight with you anymore
you are not mine I am not yours
and I’m sorry I lost sight
of the chasm that divides us
even pressed right up beside you
you were miles and miles and miles away

There ain’t no easy way there ain’t no fair shake
and all the things you think that you deserve aren’t really yours to take
all the people that you know are only finding their own way
be gracious if you can and when you can’t let em walk away

There ain’t no easy way there ain’t no fair shake
and all the things I think that I deserve aren’t really mine to take
all the people that I know are only finding their own way
be gracious if I can and when I can’t
I’ll let him walk away
That’s the hardest part
To let him walk away
