cain and able lyrics – josh kelley

“cain and able”

i’m sick of chasing after things, i’d rather them chase after me
keeping up is bound to wear me down
there’s a million ways to skin a cat, i’ve put my choices in a hat
picked a few and threw the bad ones out

i know now

so if you want me you’d better knock me down
cause i ain’t easy and this ain’t hallowed ground

i’ve been thinking about ol’ cain and able, sitting at a breakfast table
talking about the way things used to be
well able looked at cain and said all that sh*t was in your head
i’d like to think that cain was hard to please

i know now

so if you want me you’d better knock me down
cause i ain’t easy and this ain’t hallowed ground

she said no one loves you more than me
i looked at her, she looked at me
i think she’s waiting for me to believe

i wish that love was all it took
i’d fall into you if i could
hoping for a graceful recovery

but i know now

so if you want me, you’d better knock me down
cause i ain’t easy oh, and this ain’t hallowed ground
