lyrics

Maybe you heard the news
I got back on my feet once more
took a break from the booze
took a walk to the jewelry store

And I bought you a ring
just as bright as your diamond smile
and I polished my things
In the hopes you might stay a while

And I’m clear headed
strong, sober
eyes open, wide awake
and I’m all ready
I’m all ready
but it’s already too late

Went and bought me a suit
got a haircut and fresh, hot, shave
took a trip to the moon
went to visit my mother’s grave

I gave up cigarettes
and if she was alive she’d say
that she has no regrets
from the man to the boy she raised

And I’m clear headed
strong, sober
eyes open, wide awake
and I’m all ready
I’m all ready
but it’s already too late

Now that you’ve heard my song
might convince you for one last fling
I know you won’t stay long
when you see that the words I sing

Are not so much true
but ideas of what I could be
I would be him for you
cos I don’t give a damn about me

Cos I’m not stronger
I’m not sober
I’m still burning at the stake
I’m not ready
I’ll never be ready
and it’s already too late
