From the recording Unimportant Things

Lyrics

MAKING GOOD TIME DRIVING IN FROM KNOXVILLE LATE ONE NIGHT
WORKLOAD WEIGHING HEAVY ON HIS MIND
THE FRUITS OF LABOR WAITING HOME FORTY EXITS UP THE ROAD
MAKE THE MILES AND MOTELS WORTH THE TIME

SHE HAS HIS LOVE IN THE COMFORTS THAT SURROUND HER EVERY DAY
SEES IT IN THE SMILES HER CHILDREN WEAR
BUT HE KNOWS SHE'S STILL EMPTY THERE IN ONE CORNER OF HER HEART
THERE'S STILL A PART OF HIM HE JUST CAN'T SHARE

(Chorus)
AND THOUGH HE FEELS LOVE DEEP INSIDE HE STILL CAN'T FIND THE WORDS
CAN'T SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES
AND SHE WANTS MORE THAN RAISING KIDS AND BUILDING WORLDLY DREAMS
HUGS AND KISSES AREN'T IMPORTANT DEEDS
BUT THOSE UNIMPORTANT THINGS ARE WHAT SHE NEEDS

HE LEARNED HIS WAYS FROM HIS OLD MAN WHEN HE WAS JUST A BOY
LOVE MEANT RULES ON WHICH WE BOTH AGREE
HE NEVER LEARNED THAT A MAN AND WOMAN STILL NEED TO SHARE THEIR SOULS
THERE'S MORE TO LOVE THAN HAVING HOPES AND DREAMS
