I ain’t long for this old world

I ain’t long for this old world
and
I’m done tasting my own tears
a desperado can’t chase love

with life in prison facing years
and
 if you see me walk alone
outside those bars I’m hidin’ in
an empty house replaced my home
a women’s heart replaced by sin
 

and I ain’t long for this old world
because its left me lost my dear
without a way to carry on 
a
love that’s never disappeared
cause there ain’t nothing goin’ right
without her love I’m livin’ wrong
and I don’t even need the lights
to see I’m not where I belong     

I ain’t long for this old world
I’ve longed to lay beside her here
without a bottle by the bed
without becoming my worst fear
my buddies tell me to be strong
but I’ve been running like a deer
from words I’ve written in a song…
without her love it won’t be long ©
