"When You Were Mine" By: Walter Rose

Wheels keep on turning California byway
Lord knows where I’m headed she ain't going my way
Days turn to night the tires keep the rhythm right
but these days always end the same chasing a fading light
and I’m still forgetful about this wasted potential
'cause nothings changed, I'm all the same nothing but myself to blame

short on money baby and I'm long on time
But you never fade away
The days when you where mine

and your smile's the melody to the songs I always sing
you’re that little bit of hope in just what tomorrow might bring
'cause you never fade baby from this life of maybes
yeah but you know where to find me girl

I’ll raise my whiskey to the non-believers
and one more beer back chaser for all the dreamers
'cause if I keep running maybe I'll find some peace of mind
But the sun never shines so bright
As the days when you where mine

yeah I'm short on money baby and long on time
but you never fade away
or the days when you were mine
