Well I'll tip the brim of my old fedora
Put my feet on the boards and into the lights
And sing all the songs I ever knew
Just to get through another night

They want me to sing that song
The one I wrote for me and you
The one where I sing softly
That our love was forever true
When I get to that sweet refrain
Where I think that I might cry
I see of your sweet smile baby
Then remember every lie

It still gets to me you know
Even with all this time gone by
The whole time you were with me
Your love story was with another guy

Even if I don't want to play it
A song is just a song
Called sharply requested every night
For me to play it sweet and long
But...
Each night when I'm through playin'
A big ole moon shines up there so bright
Casting those sharp shadows
For the lies hidden from the light
But...

You know I could forgive you
If my heart could have a say
But no matter how pretty the song is
You didn't care for me that way
It still gets to me you know
Even with all this time gone by
The whole time you were with me
You we're lovin' up another guy

I see the folks on the dance floor
holding' tight the way lovers do
And I strum and keep on pretending
That every word I sing is true
The words I sing have some meaning
The makings of a tragedy
Perhaps love is the answer
But not to a lovesick fool like me

It still gets to me you know
Even with all this time gone by
The whole time you were with me
Your love story was with another guy

They always want me to sing that song
The one I wrote for me and you
The one where I sing softly
That our love was forever true
But I need to write a heartbreakin,'
forsaken, tear making song
about losing you.

Why is doing what you love the hardest thing to do? Is it because failing what you thought defined you would be too devastating a thing from which to recover? If so, we stay where mere accident has left us.
