Long Time Gone

By Mike Stevens 

 

Has anyone seen my old life?  It used to be right here!

 Just why it changed, isn’t exactly clear

One day it was doing fine, the next it was a long time gone

I guess I don’t know where it went, or what I did wrong?

I look at the face in the mirror, and he’s a stranger to me

How did I wind up here; I’ve tried, but I just can’t see

Which way is up; which way is out?

Where before there was certainty, now there is doubt

I used to know exactly where I was headed

Now the future is something to be dreaded

I walk alone into the great unknown

All my faults are exposed; all bravado blown

I guess I have to be truthful with myself

Just where the answers lie, it’s so hard to tell
