my mind ran a race as i searched every place
for those dear thing that i've thrown away
if the colors would fade to black and white days
then i'd find a safe place to stay

i've walked through these streets and i've missed every beat
this old city's on (?)
so i figured i'd drive north on 75
and look for a sign from above

"the world's largest crucifix" the billboard screamed at me
but the old rugged cross i sought was nowhere to be seen
and bigger's usually better so i know i must believe
that the world's largest crucifix saves their dying memory

i try to remember that kind of september
we all sang about when life was slow
before all the shame and loved one's we've blamed
have ripped out our poor family's soul

the world's largest crucifix bring them back to me
but the old rugged cross i sought was nowhere to be seen
and bigger's usually better so i know i must believe
that the world's largest crucifix saves their dying memory

---

little amber bottles when i ask to be alone
little amber bottles when i pray to be back home
i thought that i was dreaming when i heard you say goodbye
i must have heard you screaming but i couldn't remember why

those clouds are rolling in
this heartache's going to win
little amber bottles, let loneliness begin

this house is filled with sorrow
each door and board i can recall
i wait until tomorrow from inside these padded walls
i thought that i was dreaming when i heard you say goodbye
i must have heard you screaming but i couldn't remember why

i've prayed for days to pass
oh another empty glass
little amber bottles will let me be with you at last

little amber bottles when i ask to be alone
oh little amber bottles when i pray to be back home
