Lyrics-Next Time

Next Time

i was thinking ’bout the times when you made me happy
guess those times are gone for good
if i had it to do all over again
i ain’t sure that i would

i was thinking ’bout the time when you broke my heart
that’ll never happen again
i’ve got better things to do with my time
than sitting ’round rememberin’ when

next time i decide to leave
you won’t know it ’til i’m gone
no tear filled goodbyes
no heart breaking so longs
as sure as i live and breathe
i’ll be as sure as i can be
next time i decide to leave

well, we could’ve done a whole lot better
with so many years, so much rehearsing
but i changed and you changed
and you point your finger and lay the blame
down at my feet, down at my feet

i was trying to figure out the whys and the hows
of all the things tearing us apart
just when i think i’ve got it all worked out
i find myself back at the start
sometimes the wrong direction is better than no direction at all
i’d rather be out there with the hammer down
than here waiting for the ax to fall
