lyrics

Once I was haunted by the memory
of someone who you used to be
And someone that you never could become
My world was dark and getting colder
Every day spent getting older
Waiting for those better days to come

As time went by, I grew obsessed
With pining for that happiness
That once I felt so strongly in my heart
Obsessed with ancient memories,
I shunned my friends and enemies
Who, in turn, watched me slowly fall apart

I long to wake up in the morning in that old familiar place
Feeling like a million bucks and lookin' at your face
I know that patience is a virtue, but I've squandered so much time
Loving you though you were never mine
Loving you though you were never mine

Eventually, my self-decieving led me into heavy drinkin'
Cursin', thinkin', smoking in the dark
My days grew short and nights grew longer
with depression getting stronger
And my future looking rather stark

I long to wake up in the morning in that old familiar place
Feeling like a million bucks and lookin' at your face
I know that patience is a virtue, but I've squandered so much time
Loving you though you were never mine
Loving you though you were never mine

Now, there comes a time for every man
when he's staring down upon the end
And it's up to him to make the final call
It's the last chance that he has got
To shit or get up off the pot
And, with that choice, he'll either rise or fall

Well, on that final judgment day
I chose to rise, I'm glad to say
Those first few steps are such a vital part
And though it took some time, I'm moving on
I'm on my way and it won't be long
And I'm certain that there's better days to come

I long to wake up in the morning in that old familiar place
Feeling like a million bucks and lookin' at your face
I know that patience is a virtue, but I've squandered so much time
Loving you though you were never mine
Loving you though you were never mine
Loving you though you were never mine
Loving you though you were never mine


(Lyrics by Wes Tanenbaum)
