Stretch Arm Strong — The Truth About Iowa lyrics

Standing at a crossroad snow still falling down.
Misery loves company and a companion could be found.
What started as a conquest had ended in defeat.
The way we were the things we said and all i won't repeat.
New years eve aint all it's cracked up to be.
I've seen the best and heard the worst and everything in between.
18hrs is such a long,
Long time and the sting of painful words destroy us inside.
Our silence can say so much and our words pack a painful punch.
Nothing can take away the memories of that day and i was so sure that we'd fade away.
Fade away.
Adversity makes us stronger,
So can we make this last a little longer?
Can we put aside the competition that resides in all of us, in all of us?
I know it's in me and i've seen it in you,
But i set my sights on seeing this one through.
I am gonna see it through.
I know that we'll never fully agree,
But it's worth my time and it's worth the risk because this is family.
