These words find there place in his song, “Done & Done,”
“It sounds so sad, that word goodbye
You can’t see the day without the night
Go right through the darkest times
Find it out, realize.
That it’s done and done
Past and past, you can’t help yourself
From looking back
How sweet it was when I was young
Now I’m growing up, my roots run deep
Changed my colors, lost my leaves
Seasons changing, growing green,
The farther I do go, the less it seems to be
The tracks don’t lead me back
To how it used to be”
