on the last day of 2008
I learned i'd been taken along for a ride
it was the worst feeling, a terrible feeling
worse than when my mother died
'cuz at least she tried
even with cancer inside
to make me feel our time together had mattered
and I deserve better than what happened

ooo, woe is me

on the best day of 2008
I thought that I had my whole future in sight
it was the best feeling, a magical feeling
a feeling of intense pride
'cuz I was able to find
a future mother and bride
who made me feel what we were building was perfect
and all the sacrifices made would be worth it

so much for dreams

all I wanted now was to say hello
and hear from anyone that I have been missed
I'm not opposed to moving on
trust me, I want to move on more than anything
I'm the same guy you let into your family
and I need a hug

now on the bread line in 2009
it's even harder to feel pumped about life
no I can't see the ceiling
but trust that I'm dealing
and we're all doing what we can to survive
and maybe someday we'll thrive
I'll find a queen for my hive
but without a lover or a mother it's harder
for a man to feel at home and find comfort

ooo, woe is me
