Mickey Newbury - "I Came To Hear The Music" lyrics

I Came To Hear The Music

I came to hear the music
I came to hear the sound
The music,
It bring's me down
A long, long road
From now to then
I know your song
Sing it again...

There's so many things
I don't believe I understand
The day's run into weeks
Run into month's..

The year's become a moment
In the ever changing sand
Did God make time to
Keep it all from happening
At once.. all at once..

I came to love the music
Before I came to be
To know the music
Before it came to me

Long time ago
I don't know when
I sang the song
Along with the wind

There's so many things
I don't believe I understand
The day's run into weeks
Run into month's..

The year's become a moment
In the ever changing sand
Did God make time to
Keep it all from happening
At once.. all at once..

So save these precious moments
For the child behind your eyes
To find the thing's we
Lost along the way..

For I believe that in His wisdom
God has set aside a time
For us all to go back to yesterday..
To yesterday..

I'm here to face the music...
