DOWN DARK WATERS

Lyrics

I went down to the water, my lover not far behind. And as I eased on into the dark dark waters, an even darker thought was growing in my mind (growing in my mind). He said he loved me and he said he'd keep me, and that the key to his heart was chained around my neck. Well, I tore that chain off with my angry fingers and in the deep waters I placed it around his neck And he went down, down, down dark waters. Down, down, down, down below. In no more pain and in no more sorrow will his broken heart ever have to know (ever have to know). He met her sometime back in late December. She and I were friends several years ago. But, there were too many nights since then, I can't remember, excuses why he was late again coming home. Meanwhile, my girl, she wasn't picking up her phone. So I took her down to a lovely garden but the waters edge, a sight to behold. I told her that my love will not be joining us. I told that something must have come up at home. meanwhile, there we were at the waters edge left all alone. And she went down, down, down dark waters. Down, down, down, down below. In no more pain and in no more sorrow will my broken heart ever have to know (ever have to know) No, no, no, no, no Well, I did not think this through. I did not think this through, now you'll be together, together forever. No, I did not think this through, I did not think this through. Now the only thing left for me to do (I can't eat, I cant drink, I cant breath, Im going down...) I'm going down, down dark waters. Down, down, down, down below. in no more pain and in no more sorrow, and no one will ever have to know. That I went down, down, down dark waters. Down, down, down, down below

This song was inspired by having good AND bad times in life...you cannot know joy unless you have experienced sorrow.  I was reflecting on my porch and feeling so grateful for where I am at in my life in this time.  The song is not a sad song but rather a song about living...having had time to live..make mistakes, screw ups, general life-aches that happen, after-all, it's LIFE!  And, I am certainly happy to have 'Had My Time'

Lyrics

"Somebody's always watching", that's what my daddy'd say

He'd say, "You can't escape everyone's eyes, so use your eyes to guide your way"

I grew up with the need to climb the highest mountain top, scream as loud as I can with no one there to make me stop

 

Life began in an instant, when I decided to leave my home

...was 14 and playin honkey-tonks and with men who should have know

Blowing people up as I burn by, racing up my mountain top

Drinking away the cares of the world with no one there to make me stop

 

Chorus

I've had my time, I'm having my time (2x)

 

And for reasons, I keep thinking that the only thing that can make this right, is for your arms wrapped around me, asking if I'm gonna spend the night...but that ain't happening tonight

It's lonely and It's winter, sun is cold and there's no snow

Reflecting on some memories that have left me chilled to the bone

I've climbed as high as I can climb, this journey to the top

Now I'm standing at the edge and looking over with no one there to make me stop
