You were on your way up
I was on my way down
When I passed you my hand I did raise like the old time
You were on your way to the land of the bible
Where they tell you to kneel down and pray

It was solely, solely for me

I called my friend and asked him
Said where did you take him, where did you lay him I wanted to see
So I grabbed him some flowers, grabbed him some daisies
Some things I would have done as a kid

It was solely, solely for me

Had a day to get there
So I took my sweet time and drove through the valleys
Drove through the plains
Pulled up at mid-night the light was still on
I found myself between the stain and the frame

It was solely, solely for me
