Once Again

The one I really need is several

Hundred miles away,

And the one that I still grieve,

She keeps me pluckin’ at these strings.

I’ve become someone else

Since you left me this way,

But you told me to leave,

When I asked you to stay. 

I can write a thousand songs of hope

And never cross your mind;

I could sing of you and I and you

Would call me just to change my mind

Again.

I stopped smoking cigarettes

‘Cause they taste like your lips

And I never thought I’d miss you

When I kissed someone else.

I haven’t drank in months,

Because I can’t afford the beam,

But, darling, you had broken me,

Tore my heart off my sleeve.

Why don’t you leave me alone?

I can write a thousand songs of hope

And never cross your mind;

I could sing of you and I and you

Would call me just to change my mind

Again.

Summer’s on its way

And the grass is getting greener,

But the sunrise never looked

Just like the time that I first saw her.

Now I wish you’d go away.

I want you out of my brain.

Take your memories and leave me

With all of my mistakes.

And give me one last cigarette

For the night that we first met

So I can smoke out all the pain

And let it drown in regret. 

I could write a thousand songs of hope

And never cross your mind. 

I could sing of you and I and you

Would call me just to change my mind

Again.
