about

We were all happy with this track. It's supported by lap steel that we sadly can't reproduce live.

lyrics

Save the best

I’ve been south and I’ve been west
They televise the sunrise but I save the best
I been here all along
I decode every road that I’ve been on

I set sail for seven seas
And I dropped anchor at the slightest breeze
Turned my hand to shape the sun
Released the Birds of Plenty but I held my tongue
Stole the show shared the spoils
Is that a ring or just the serpent’s coils

I was sleeping on the job I would flatter to deceive
I was the mainstay of the plot the prosecution had to weave
If you needed a conviction someone blind to take the fall
There’s a way up through the briars
If you will bear the pall

Soldiered on, the bitter end
Barricades abandoned, nothing to defend
Bore the brunt, took the knocks
It’s not the fall that kills you it’s the sudden stop
I’ve been south and I’ve been west
They televise the sunrise but I save the best
