AIN’T GOTTEN AROUND
© 2015 by Heather Pierson

Another clear morning
Another bluebird sky
Another day of letting things coast
I’ve heard my share of laughter
And oh, the tears I’ve cried
I’m quite sure that I’ve seen more than most

I’ll tell you why I hide myself away in these mountains
‘cause there’s a whole world of hurt beyond that ridge
I’m sure some folks out there are happy
And I’m sure they’d mean me well
But I just ain’t gotten around to building that bridge
No I just ain’t gotten around to building that bridge

Well I ain’t much for drama
I’ve heard it all before
And I don’t wear my heart up on my sleeve
With these four walls around me
And all that beauty at my door
How in heaven’s name could I ever leave?

I’ll tell you why I hide myself away in these mountains
‘cause the world is full of things that I don’t need
I’m sure the land out there is fertile
And I’m sure the grass is green
But I just ain’t gotten around to planting those seeds
No I just ain’t gotten around to planting those seeds

That big ol’ moon is rising
And all the chores are done
My belly’s full and the fire’s dying down
My eyes are growing heavy
And the whiskey’s got my tongue
It’s time to sleep til that sun comes back around

I’ll tell you why I hide myself away in these mountains
Because the world ain’t exactly how it seems
I’m sure some folks would tell you different
And I reckon it might be true
But I just ain’t gotten around to having those dreams
No I just ain’t gotten around to having those dreams
