By the Wayside
 words and music by Justin Burrrill (Crabble Duro, BMI)

We all fail and falter,
Ground our ships on craggy shores,
We steer storm-ward and hellbent
And stumble through the wrong door.

And it’s easy to let it go like that,
But you can Fall by the wayside

When you are drifting, sinking, spinning,
And your hands have nothing to grasp
And you want to get off the trolley,
But it is moving much too fast.

Well, it’s easy to let it go let that,
But you can fall by the wayside

When you are looking down the barrel
Of an endless summer day,
You can’t remember what you wanted
And you’ve got no friends to play

It’s easy to let it go like that,
And you can fall by the wayside

Fall by the wayside
