lyrics

paint me a picture of beauty with grit / sunflowers in car lots / Pulaski moonlit / do the best with what you've got / you think it's not perfect / but it is
back it up back it up back it up / you're way too close / can you see the big picture when you're moving so slow? / and are these actual miles? / step by step it takes a while

photos of babies growing in leaps and bounds / new jobs new lovers lost and found / dreams like little ducklings follow me around / quiet down please

spider spins her web and the wind kicks up / she's left for dead / but all she did was wait / she doesn’t push too hard to create

take a break take a break take a break / take in the view / everything you give comes back to you / and are these actual miles? / step by step it takes a while
