"The Things I Regret" as written by Brandi Carlile, Phillip Hanseroth and Timothy Hanseroth....
Oh oh oh oh-o-oh
Oh oh oh oh-o-oh

There’s a hole in my pocket where my dreams fell through,
From a sidewalk in the city to the avenue
There’s a leak in my dam ‘bout the size of a pin,
And I can’t quite remember where the water’s getting in

But when you’re wearing on your sleeve,
All the things you regret,
You can only remember what you want to forget
You feel it tugging at your heart,
Like the stars overhead,
‘Til you rest your bones on the killing bed

Let them roll over me.
Let them roll over me,
When I doubt you

Let them roll over me.
Let them roll over me,
When I doubt you

With the weight of the world resting on my back,
And the road on which I've traveled is as long as it is cracked
But I keep pressing forward with my feet to the ground,
For a heart that is broken makes a beautiful sound

But when you’re wearing on your sleeve,
All the things you regret,
You can only remember what you want to forget

Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me,
When I doubt you.

Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me,
When I doubt you

Oh oh oh oh-o-oh
Oh oh oh oh-o-oh

I walk through my days like a ghost in a dream,
But the field carries on and my past follows me
It’s hard moving on from the things you done wrong,
When they play in your head like an old fashioned song

But when you’re wearing on your sleeve,
All the things you regret,
You can only remember what you want to forget

Lonely miles,
Without you

Lonely miles,
Without you

Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me,
When I doubt you

Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me,
When I doubt you

Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me

Let the ground keep my bones
Let the water be my home
Let the dust hold my soul,
Like a holy rolling stone
