(Sigh!) I've got the blues. Alone again.
Running as the river's flow
misery is hanging over me
trying to get the feeling
that drew me to you, and you to me
trying to be, what we used to be
Love, it is said, heals all wounds
but some wounds fester on
to heal it, takes more than some of us
are willing to give, the reasons
some of us can't condone
but I will never give up
on the idea of love
I grasp for it, fleeting tho' it has been
I keep losing it, even when
I think , "this time I'm gonna win!"
and my muddy waters flow on
yes, they're cloudy and cold
but they still flow on
Everytime I roll over,
I seem to fall on my head
some days, it's hard to get out of bed
I make a move, and it starts all over again
clouds muddle my view
darkness brings on the pain
but I won't stop my search
for love, I'll never give in
so on, my muddy waters go
stirred by hope, on and on they flow
