Tift Merritt – “Engine to Turn”

I got a lot of great requests today, including one for any Tift Merritt. I chose this song because it’s one of the catchiest newer tunes we’re playing and I really enjoy it musically. But as I played it today and took in some of the words, I found new appreciation for the son lyrically.

“Maybe the world feels like me,
Wishing someone would sing it a song,
About how there’s a lot of good here,
About how it’s done nothing wrong.

I’m just trying to get the engine to turn,
I’m just trying to smile through my tears.
And I still got so much to learn,
But the best I can is what I have to give,
Gonna give it while I’m here.”

Tift Merritt
