Reasons Why
Nickel Creek Lyrics


Where am I today? I wish that i knew
'Cause looking around there's no sign of you
I don't remember one jump or one leap
Just quiet steps away from you lead

I'm holding my heart out but clutching it
Feeling this sort of a love that we once knew
I'm calling this home when it's not even close
Playing the role with nerves left exposed
And standing on a darkened stage
Stumbling through the lines
Others have excuses
But I have my reasons why

We get distracted by dreams of our own
But nobody's happy while feeling alone
And knowing how hard it hurts when we fall
We lean another ladder against the wrong wall

And climb high to the highest rung
To shake fists at the sky
While others have excuses
I have my reasons why
With so much deception it's hard not to wander away
It's hard not wander away, it's hard not to wander

Lyrics

Where am I today? I wish that I knew
'Cause looking around there's no sign of you
I don't remember one jump or one leap
Just quiet steps away from your lead

I'm holding my heart out but clutching it too
Feeling this short of a love that we once knew
I'm calling this home when it's not even close
Playing the role with nerves left exposed

Standing on a darkened stage, stumbling through the lines
Others have excuses, but I have my reasons why

We get distracted by dreams of our own
But nobody's happy while feeling alone
And knowing how hard it hurts when we fall
We lean another ladder against the wrong wall

And climb high to the highest rung, to shake fists at the sky
While others have excuses, I have my reasons why

With so much deception it's hard not to wander away
It's hard not to wander away
It's hard not to wander away

'Cause looking around there's no sign of you
I don't remember one jump or one leap
Just quiet steps away from you lead
I'm holding my heart out but clutching it, oo
Feeling this sort of a love that we once knew
I'm calling this home when it's not even close
Playing the role with nerves left exposed
And standing on a darkened stage
Stumbling through the lines
Others have excuses
But I have my reasons why
We get distracted by dreams of our own
But nobody's happy while feeling alone
And knowing how hard it hurts when we fall
We lean another ladder against the wrong wall
And climb high to the highest rung
To shake fists at the sky
While others have excuses
I have my reasons why
With so much deception it's hard not to wander away
It's hard not wander away, it's hard not to wander"

Were you the dude that played lamb of god then this in the bar when I was shitfaced one night when I first heard it?

Tom Holschbach

@Ross Williams . Amen Ross. I grew up listening to trucker music, old time country and gospel. To classic rock, and to metal! Slayer 🤘you are correct. Tons of amazing music. Don’t close your mind, eyes, ears, or heart to good music

daniel o'meara

A long time ago, I was on lunch break, listening, iirc,to Garrison Keillor's show. I heard this beautiful song that touched me deeply. Instead of heading back to work, I drove to the nearest record store and bought the album, which had just been released.

I was almost angry when I saw it. They're just kids! How do kids write something this moving? I'm old, tough, grizzled, and cynical. How does a pack of teenage musicians get through all my defenses so easily?

I finally realized that such questions don't mean a thing. Don't ask questions. Just let the music take you...

@Carl Starrett check out Billy Strings, too

Years ago, I saw Chris Thile perform with the San Diego Symphony and they played a video clip from When You Come Back Down. I bought their CD the next day. I've seen them in concert twice.
