Turn away from the pain you don't want
Turning down to avoid them when they call
Strange words I heard a long-long time ago
I wish I could go back to a summer time
I knew more than twenty years ago
Lay between the sheets, lie underneath the maple tree

Now, I can't smile

Lying down in the grass with the
Wind around us as we smile and talk
Listen to your grandma sing those country songs
She'd tell us how the maple turns to fire every four years
We'd lay in the grass all summer
Just to watch the autumn come around

I can't smile
I can't smile

Now I live alone
And your so far away
Yeah, I call you every year
Just around the holidays
I still see you in the night
Lying above me in the grass

I can't smile

Now, turn away from the pain you don't want
Turning down to avoid them when they call
I can't believe this letter that said you died
I think I'm gonna go back to the house in North Carolina
And lay in the backyard
Get drunk and let the leaves just bury me, bury me

I can't smile
I can't smile
I don't know what's happening
I don't know what's happening
I can't smile
