The world loves... JP Garwood

Edward Milton Hays

Lyrics - JP Garwood / Music - Steve Leonard

Never did the sights and sounds dilute your memory
Nor did the passing of time affect your ears
You were thinkin' of better days
You were thinkin' of better days
Weren't you? when you were younger

I don't believe it's a crime
You lying 'bout your innocence
Pretending you're not what you seem to be
A simple old man don't get much praise
Now does he Edward Milton Hays?
For some strange reason

Never did the mindless world stop to remember
Nor did the passing of time reduce its speed
It just keeps movin' on
They just keep movin' on
and suddenly, find someone else to take your place

So close your tired eyes
Leave on your disguise
Live happy in your lies
They will sustain you
You're not the only one
Who knows it isn't fun
To just remain you

If these be the final days
of Edward Milton Hays
Forget a world that pays no mind
It will only drain you
If these be the final days
of Edward Milton Hays
Never will the world stop to remember
Guess that's why no one ever stays

Goodbye Edward Milton Hays
I'll see you later
