LYRICS:
One more wasted morning when I could be holding you to my side
Somebody stop this joyless joy ride
I’m feeling older than my 35 years

One more cryptic message thinking that I might end it
Oh God, you must have woken up to me saying that it’s all too much
I’ll take it easy with the morbid stuff

Oh, honey I’m worried about you
You’re too much to lose
You’re all that I have
And honey I’m worried about you
Put yourself in my shoes
You’re all that I have, so please don’t die
Wherever you are tonight

All these pointless benders with reptilian strangers
Oh my God, you’re so naïve
You’ll leave this world in a drunken heap
Who’ll make the arrangements, baby them or me?

Honey, I’m worried about you
You’re too much to lose
You’re all that I have
And honey, I’m worried about you
Put yourself in my shoes
You’re all that I have
You’re all that I have
You’re all that I have, so please don’t die
Wherever you are tonight
