What I Bargained For

What I Bargained For

by Chuck RitenouR

 

 

verse 1:

I dreamed my friends came to me to help carry my load

I know some are gone, but not forgotten to that better place I know

yeah, I took alot of comfort cause they'd help me if they could

and when I woke this mornin', I was feeling pretty good

so "Honey" put some coffee on and fry my bacon crisp

let me wrap my arms around your waist and kiss your sweet lips

and tell me that you love me as I stumble out the door.

this ain't the life I had in mind, but its what I bargained for.

verse 2:

There's roses growing in the yard with dew still on their leaves.

I should be a happy man, happy as a man could be.

But sometimes I come back home girl, cause I've got nowhere else to go.

and I pray to God each and every night, that you will never know

so "Honey" turn the lights down low and shuffle off to bed.

I would never try to hurt you girl, with anything I said.

I know the pain you're carryin', why should I add more

this ain't the life I had in mind, buts its what I bargained for.

verse 3:

Once I was a young man with many a young man's dreams

I watched some die one at a time, I heard their bloody screams

and some became so twisted I could not recognize

those dreams I dreamed so sweetly right before my eyes.

so "Honey" say you understand just the way I feel

and shake me til I'm awake and tell its all real.

is love just a game we play with no one keeping score

this ain't the life I had in mind, but its what I bargained for.

A sentiment that many of us can identify with.

dahoglund,

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Sometimes in the early hours before the sun while I can still feel the amplifiers' hum and sleep is elusive, the muse visits me.
