Little Details Submit Correct Lyrics

There's no street lamps on the road I take
I'm not blessed with brakes, I've got no place to be
The things I love, always get up and go
Like they're late for a show, well, late they'll always be

'Cause it's the little details that derail your dreams
As simple as it seems
The separate little things that you should have done
Define your life, honey, one by one

I may be living but I'll die for an end
With no money to spend, there'll be no treasure to find
'Cause nothing I do ever seems to get done
A lot of things get begun but then they slip my mind

It's the little details that derail your dreams
As simple as it seems
The separate little things that you should have done

They define your life, honey, one by one
I've tried to run, but there ain't nowhere to run
Tried to hide, but there ain't nowhere to hide

I've looked for peace, honey, peace could not be found
I've done myself wrong and put my anchor down
And happiness, happiness is up in the hills

You can take your dollar bills or you can leave 'em behind
And emptiness, emptiness is up in my head
All the books that I've read just cleaned out my mind

It's the little details that derail your dreams
As simple as it seems
The separate little things that you should have done

They define your life, honey, one by one
I've tried to run, but there ain't nowhere to run
Tried to hide, but there ain't nowhere to hide

I've looked for peace, honey, peace could not be found
I've done myself wrong and put my anchor down
Well the truth is this, I don't care if I belong
When there's all these stupid songs are on the radio
