I'm over here Not there Did you notice-- All my stuff was missing? Do you remember last fall-- And how hard it was raining?

I'm over here Not there On the other side of your door-- Eyes bloodshot and feet sore Did I tell you That this is the last time?

I'm over here Not there Said I was sorry-- But I lied Said not to worry-- But didn't try.

I'm over here Not there Still the family member Who's name you don't hear Still chasing the dragon And numb in the ears.

I'm over here Not there A different spot everynight-- Like trash blowing in the wind Tired, but can't sleep Empty, but don't want to eat.

I'm over here Not there Struggling with myself-- Trying to remember who I am Liquid fire melts my veins-- I don't give a damn.

I'm over here Not there Breaking down again Inside of detox walls-- Shakin like there's no tomorrow Giving you a phone call.

I'm over here Not there In a place I've been too-- Plenty of times before Methadone and sleeping pills-- Sulking in my core.

I'm over here Not there Im not where I want to be-- Trying to save what's left of me For one more chance-- To make a better life So when I come back home You won't see a stranger.

You'll see your daughter.
