One Too Many Things

lyrics

One too many things, left me down
But now I’m on my feet, so watch me please
As I take these memories, place them in the corner
For the mice and mold, to use as they please.

So one too many tries, we should have left the highway
for the one way streets, going nowhere.
Lets heed to this advice, and end this strife
Now here I stand, singing hallelujah.

So goodbye Mona Lisa, your canvas has seen its day.
So goodbye Mona Lisa, your smile’s just not the same to me.

One too many lies, can make even hard-nosed people
Say goodbye, to their one true love.
So when the leaves fall, I hope I don’t regret it all
And lose my mind in a moment’s time.

So one too many times, I stepped over backwards
That fine thin line, of wasted time.
But now I’m back on my feet, never to return to
that part of me, singing hallelujah.

So goodbye Mona Lisa, your canvas has seen its day.
So goodbye Mona Lisa, your smile’s just not the same.
So one too many drinks, can make you sink
like a stone into a black abyss.
And there you will lie,
Smothered by the darkness
That fills the sky when only muddy waters they trickle down your sleeve
Reminiscent still of the unyielding pleads.
But listen closely cuz I won’t say it twice
The story remains the same.
