Lyrics

Polished the steel, waxed every wheel
I promised I'd stay off the highway

Wind in my hair, dice in the air
Can't help but tap to the rhythm

The color of this paint sure shines

Catching the glare
Old neighborhood stares
That I haven't seen in a long time

PRE-CHORUS
The pavement turns to gravel now

CHORUS:
Well it's a short walk to your headstone
But took a long time gettin here
I thought you'd like to see your project
You sort of left half done last year

I hope you think I did it justice
Cause I remembered all you said
I'm sure the last thing that you told me
Was to Paint It Cherry Red

Sat in the grass
Watching clouds pass
Memories slip, cant remember

Your face, it fades
Words can't contain
Feelings that I 'd rather sever

PRECHORUS
And as I'm walking back to leave
I'm feelin tears fall on these keys

CHORUS
