Tumbleweed Fields  – written 9/12/08

Kimberli Ransom

You call on the phone

just like it was then

Like we were young kids

and I was your friend

Say do you recall

a tumbleweed field

The years make it hazy

was it for real

I don’t know if it

was tragedy or truth

I don’t know if

I ever made it through

VERSE 2

You ask me his name

what does he do

I hope that you love him

like I loved you

Yeah, summer was long here

hottest to date

I don’t think about you

‘til October late

I don’t know if it

was bad luck or fate

But autumn leaves and dark days

remind me of your face

CHORUS

By the time the phone rings

we’ve already lived it

And by the way did life bring

all the love you’d give it

By the way I do recall

tumbleweed fields

We drove all night long

just to get there

Sand on the windshield

hand in your hair

That sky burned afire

that morning was cold

We loved as they danced

tumbled and rolled

I don’t know if it was

promised or proposed

The answer’s still the same

but it’s not the one we chose

CHORUS

By the time the phone rings

we’ve already lived it

And by the way did life bring

all the love you’d give it

By the way I do recall

tumbleweed fields

BRIDGE

Fields of tumble weeds

Each night before I sleep

And I make it through

another day

As I lay me down

Wind blows all around

‘til I, make it through

another day

of tumble weed fields

(VERSE 3)

Yeah, mama is fine

but dad passed away

Your children are grown now

what are their names

Long before I went gray

and lines crossed your face

I wondered out loud

who’d fill your space

I don’t know if it was

blind luck or faith

But I found love again

and he walks in your place

CHORUS

By the time the phone rings

we’ve already lived it

And by the way did life bring

all the love you’d give it

By the way I do recall

tumbleweed fields

Standing this side of Goodbye   – written 12/2009
Verse II:G I C9 I G I C9 I Em7 C9 I C9 I G :II
Chorus II D I C9 I G I Em I DI C9 I G I Em I C9 Em7 I G II

One step cross the line
His boots were polished and spit shined
And what a mess they left behind
Just one step cross the line

Sterling bands of steel
Aren’t strong enough to feel
All the ways the heart won’t heal
After sterling bands of steel

It’s just a place you’ve never been
Can’t move on and can’t move in
It’s just the little ways you die
Pull all the stars down from the sky
Standing this side of goodbye

Standing this side of goodbye
You tend to ask the questions why
When no one cares enough to lie
You’re standing this side of goodbye

It’s just a place you’ve never been
Can’t move on and can’t move in
It’s just the little ways you die
Pull all the stars down from the sky
Standing this side of goodbye

You didn’t mean to do it
Said there was nothing to it
But babe, you couldn’t look me in the eye
Voices in my head screaming
No going back to dreaming
I turn and slowly step across that line
To this side of goodbye

One step cross the line
My new boots, oh, how they shine
When love is forward not behind
You’re standing this side of goodbye

It’s just a place you know you’ve been
Can move on, can move in
It’s just the little ways you try
Put all the stars back in the sky
Standing this side of goodbye
