lyrics

Wasn't that long ago
you were sitting by my side
wasn't that long ago
I had nothing to hide
wasn't that long ago
I was happy and feeling free
wasn't that long ago
you were such a good friend to me

Then I think...
If I could just have a drink
on the brink
I don't want to think

Time changed and rearranged
I chose a different road to hoe
Mama cried but the tears in her eyes
were like dessert salt in Mexico
things got strange
I found a horse with no name
and oh how we rode
all that was was a couple of times
not that long ago

Then I think...
If I could just have a drink
on the brink
I don't want to think

Contemplate and wonder
who I am and where I am today
was a tree, fast cars or whiskey
that made me change my way
friends and family feel that way
with wonder in their eyes
but I just keep on trucking along
over bridges and rivers of lies

Then I think...
If I could just have a drink
on the brink
I don't want to think
