Got Me a Song



That’s kinda how things happen in my brain. Gimme midnight. Gimme a song. And...if the song is right...I’ll listen to it again and again and again. Through all the dark hours leading to the dawn.

Call Me

Wrap me in a bolt of lightning
Send me on my way still smiling
Maybe that's the way I should go
Straight into the mouth of the unknown
Left the spare key on the table
Never really thought I'd be able
To say I’ll merely visit on the weekends
I lost my whole life and a dear friend

I've said it so many times
I would change my ways
No, never mind
God knows I've tried

Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it's over, I'll still love you the same
Call me your favorite, call me the worst
Tell me it's over, I don't want you to hurt
It's all that I can say
So, I'll be on my way

I finally put it all together
But nothing really lasts forever
I had to make a choice that was not mine
I had to say goodbye for the last time
I kept my whole life in a suitcase
Never really stayed in one place
Maybe that's the way it should be
You know I live my life like a gypsy

I've said it so many times
I would change my ways
No, never mind
God knows I've tried

Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it's over, I'll still love you the same
Call me your favorite, call me the worst
Tell me it's over, I don't want you to hurt
It's all that I can say
So, I'll be on my way

I'll always keep you inside, you healed
My heart and my life...
And you know I tried

Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it's over, I'll still love you the same
Call me your favorite, call me the worst
Tell me it's over, I don't want you to hurt
It's all that I can say
So, I'll be on my way
So, I'll be on my way
So, I'll be on my way

That sounds like you could have written it. I can see why it drew you in and held on through the night.

Wow, those are some powerful words. ...and, sadly, could have been written by me as well.

I'm glad y'all took the time to listen. Doesn't surprise me one bit that you heard.

Pssst, Annie - I do believe it was you who introduced me to this song. Thank you.
