Ole' Darlene:

There’s a matter of utmost importance
That we must discuss
If time is a river, do you feel your body rust?
As the waves crest the shore
And the clouds rain fire down
We’ll swear that we’re up, cause we won’t be counted out

We’re getting older
With the buildings all around us
They tore down the playground
Where we learned what we were made of
Let’s get out of this town, Darlene
The prairie’s so pretty at dusk

I break my fast on backroads
With my friends, we’re all scared
So we run for our lives
Cause they’re slipping through our fingers
And the radio, no it don’t play
The songs we like anyway

Favors more than a few
That we owe and we’re due
Never mattered that much
Between me and you
If we must go to war
I will sharpen my sword
The cavalries’ coming
If you’ll just close the damn door

We chased the sunset
Nothing else we’d rather do
We got lost in the grove
That’s why this one’s for you
Let’s get out of this old town, Darlene
The prairie’s our playground at dusk

I know one day I’m gonna die
But I’ll always remember these nights
I know someday everyone dies
But we’ll always remember these night

(I’ve counted my blessings
And hoped for the best
But still I lie awake here
Expecting the worst)
