Tear Stained Eye Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Walking down Main Street
Getting to know the concrete
Looking for a purpose
From a neon sign
Verse 2
I would meet you anywhere
The western sun meets the air
We'll hit the road
Never looking behind
Verse 3
Can you deny
There's nothing greater
Nothing more
Than the traveling hands of time?
Verse 4
St. Genevieve can hold back the water
Saints don't bother
With the tear-stained eye
Verse 5
Seeing traces
Of the stars that came before
Hitting the pavement
Still asking for more
Verse 6
When the hours don't move along
Worn-out wood and familiar songs
To hear your voice is not enough
It's more than a shame
Verse 7
Can you deny
There's nothing greater
Nothing more
Than the traveling hands of time
Verse 8
St. Genevieve can hold back the water
Saints don't bother
With the-tear stained eye
Verse 9
Like a man said
Rode hard and put away wet
Throw away the bad news
Put it to rest
Verse 10
If learning is living
And the truth is a state of mind
You'll find it's better
At the end of the line
Verse 11
Can you deny
There's nothing greater
Nothing more
Than the traveling hands of time?
Verse 12
St. Genevieve can hold back the water
Saints don't bother
With the tear stained eye
Verse 13
St. Genevieve can hold back the water
Saints don't bother
With the tear stained eye
