lyrics

There’s a million reasons
It’s hard to explain
Some are just old feelings
Others have names
I trip and I stumble
Barely to stand
I’m just looking
For a soft place to land

You’ve got your things
And honey I’ve got mine
When that bell rings
It’s anybody’s time
We scratch and we claw
As we try to understand
Baby we’re just looking
For a soft place to land

I can’t forget
And I can’t remember
I’ll get there yet
Only through surrender
Half of me is child
The other half is man
Both just looking
For a soft place to land

Now everybody’s doing
And they're carrying on
Good times just flew in
Tomorrow their gone
I ride the dark horse
Drink in my hand
Really I’m just looking
For a soft place to land
I ride the dark horse
Drink in my hand
Really I’m just looking
For a soft place to land

There’s a million reasons
It’s hard to explain
