Never and Always

The Wood Brothers

Well I woke up with a dust face to a thunderclap
Thanked the grey sky for another chance
And I must have dreamed a romance
Guess it never happened
Used my love letters for the fish wrapping

Salvation just out of reach
Guess that's the way the night oughtta be
How else can you stay on the right road home

Sometimes it feels like I'm never and always alone
Like a dead man, I rose up from the sleeping light
Kicked the tin can in the moonlight
Lost a back tooth, went to look for it by the apple tree
A pretty dragonfly watching over me

Salvation is just out of reach
Guess that's the way the night oughtta be
How else can you stay on the right road home

Sometimes it feels like I'm never and always alone
Sometimes it feels like I'm never and always alone
And even when I sit and stare, my soul still wants to roam

Salvation is just out of reach
Guess that's the way the night oughtta be
How else can you stay on the right road home

Sometimes it feels like I'm never and always alone
Sometimes it feels like I'm never and always alone

Got some good food, got some dark food, [?]
But I'm never and always alone
Yeah, I'm never and always alone
