ALISON KRAUSS & UNION STATION / MAYBE – Directed by Rocky Schenck

Lyrics:

Yesterday the odds were stacked in favor of my expectations
Lying above the rest, never falling from the nest
Tuesday came and went and now I’m in a little situation
Maybe it’s for the best, I can live alone I guess

Maybe I can stand alone
Maybe I’m strong as stone
Even though the bird has flown
Maybe he’ll fly on home

Forgive me if I’m keeping you apart from better conversation
I’m numb from all my doubt, trying to sort the whole thing out
Tell me that I’m smart enough to deal with all the information
Spinning inside my head, every word he ever said

Maybe I can stand alone
Maybe I’m strong as stone
Even though the bird has flown
Maybe he’ll fly on home

(Instrumentals and Background Vocals)

Maybe I can stand alone
Maybe I’m strong as stone
Even though the bird has flown
Maybe he’ll fly on home
