 BROKEN COMPASS   

 

Today
 

today…i woke up with a sad and lonely feeling

today…leaned to kiss you as you lay there softly sleeping

            i stared into that pretty face

            knew no one could take your place

            recalled that night we lie together weeping

and i remember yesterday
all those silly games i played
wonder how i ever got along
then i looked into your eyes
sweet moment of surprise
somehow knew i’d never walk alone…

today…i thought how mean i treated you last night
today…i thought how i cut you down with words that bite
             why do i treat the lady
             who i want to have my baby
             like a barroom girl you take home with a lie

and i remember yesterday
all those bad mistakes i made
threw away my friends and family
baby please don’t let me go
you’re the only love i know
don’t make tomorrow drag in misery

today…

 

Houston, Texas ‘83
