lyrics

The pen's in my hand
But words just don't come out
It's just as if the paper's laughing at me
Thought that I'd get by with just the words and simple melodies
But then again, it doesn't really work like that
If only I could dig to find some drunken poet's soul and mind
I'd have something to help me go along

Wasted a song, now it's gone
Not much I can say, guess I'll just carry on

Today, it seems to me like such a distant memory
Tomorrow is a shadow of what I used to be
I know I've made mistakes before
I've had my share of aches before
Many times I've held my head and sighed
When all is said and done
Words were said and things were sung
Although I think I may have sang it wrong

Wasted a song, now it's gone
Not much I can say, guess I'll just carry on

Nothing comes to mind
Through the weary years I thought I'd find
A thing or two by now
All my words are gone
Painful memories linger on
And so I leave you with a broken song

Wasted a song, now it's gone
Not much I can say, guess I'll just carry on
