Lyrics



The TV’s on but the sound is down

Well, It’s a summer water color world here now
Bella, she’s down in the lobby playing tug of war with her daddy
You should see them smile For the homesick traveler

I dont unpack my suit case, it’s barely big enough to hold what I cannot say
Pandora’s box would open up and swallow me whole today

At the Cypress Inn trying to pretend
that everything’s alright see my armor shine

You hate to be alone, keep wishing I was home again
I’m just picking up the pieces at the Cypress Inn

Rosie came by late last night

to sing a SONG and drink away these vagabond days
“Damned if you do and if you don’t play the game, but this city
is a beautiful place to sing some songs under the stars.”

But me, I’m split in between the two – a longing to succeed and a simple life wi th you
If it wasn’t for my wanderlust we could start a family

At the Cypress Inn trying to pretend
that everything’s alright see my armor shine

You hate to be alone, keep wishing I was home again
I’m just picking up the pieces at the Cypress Inn

I’m in the middle of a fight between the darkness and a distant light
I get so weary in the shadows and I plead, my god, show me a sign

At the Cypress Inn trying to pretend
that everything’s alright see my armor shine

You hate to be alone, keep wishing I was home again
I’m just picking up the pieces at the Cypress Inn
