You Use To Never

You use to never tell me no

but that was once upon a time

there in another land of old

before I went and lost my mind.

In the tears that cried this river

while trying to get back to you

there in the land of gold and silver

where I'm still swimming in the blues.

So go on alone without me babe

and do what you have to do

while I'm drowning in this lake

I know that my life is through.

How long can I hold my breath

as I quickly lose track of sight

how many seconds till my death

turns my day time in to night.

I can see no reason or rhyme

as I fail to swim to shore

I've got to quit crying in my wine

and say good bye for ever more.

You use to never tell me no

but that was once upon a time

there in another land of old

before I went and lost my mind.

In the tears that cried this river

my ghost can't get back to you

there in the land of gold and silver

where I'm still haunted by the blues,

by the blues.
