If faces tell stories, and I think they do
There have been some hard chapters in the story of you
There's some dark and some lonely in the lines 'round your eyes
A thousand nights' tears, promises and lies

So we sit at the diner and talk until dawn
Lay it all on the table 'til the coffee's all gone
All the hard people you've known and you've been
Wounded and healed and opened again

And you said it best when you played your guitar
"From where you come isn't what you are"
I can hear the song ringing out over the miles
And there's nothing so true as the hope in a hard earned smile

We all have our trials and our lessons to learn
If your dreams are on fire then your heart might get burned
But to choose to be strong and have courage to heal
Lends truth to your song and the hope that I feel

And you said it best when you played your guitar
"From where you come isn't what you are"
I can hear the song ringing out over the miles
And there's nothing so true as the hope in a hard earned smile
