Starting Over

Music and Lyrics by Kevin Chambers

 

I've been wrestling with my thoughts most every night

Wondering how I believed that we could make it right

Lights flicker with the swan song

It's two-o-clock, but the night is still young

So I find a lonely bar and step inside

 

But I'm alright without you

One more drink to ease the pain

Yes I'm alright without you

 

I'm starting over

Gonna drown in all this alcohol and drift away

And when I'm sober

At least I know that I can start a new day

 

Closing time and I stumble out in the dawn

Wishing I could call you up and talk about it, but I was way too gone

 

In the morning I'll be forced to face the sun

Light of day will hit like a freight train on the run

But the hurt won't measure up to what you've done
