THREE SHEETS

By the time ….I saw you there
Was three sheets to the wind
Been out with friends…was partying
Since quarter after ten.

Knew my late night habits
Knew where I’d be tonight
Always got an angle
We both know this isn’t right.

Saw you from a distance
Heard …..you moved out of town
Nothing here to interest you
No need to hang around.

Bitter sweet, still painful
You walked out on  me
Lucky I’m still standing
Nothing here for you to see.

Weren’t meant to be together 
Can’t mix fire with gasoline
A big mistake, a huge mishap
One I’ll never make again.

Tripped and fell , was paralyzed
Fell head ….right over heels
Never knew someone  like you
Could ever make me feel.

Confused, unsure, unstable
Obsessed , in lust with you
Left me feeling foolish
Left me broken, black and blue.
