The best medicine

We run and laugh along this beaten path
And reach beyond the things that linger on.
To face the brink and share a bitter drink
When sometimes to start the best medicine’s what’s in your heart.

We rush to find the dreams that cloud our minds
And still some say it’s what you make of today.
To shoot and miss like every sobering kiss
And do our part but the best medicine’s what’s in your heart.

Remind me, why can’t we stay?
If you find you’re lost tonight I’ll turn you back this way

To love and learn, demand the things we’ve earned,
And know the score only to find there’s more.
We give and take and in the end just break.
Two simple parts when the best medicine’s what’s in your heart.

Remind me, why can’t we stay?
If you find me lost tonight turn me back this way

From day to night we stake our claim to fight
But in the end that’s not what makes true friends
To come and go when we don’t even know
The course we chart—the best medicine’s what’s in your heart

To touch, to feel, accept the truth revealed
Sometimes to start the best medicine’s what’s in your heart
