Dear Susan

Dear Susan I need your advice
I think I'm falling for my best friends wife
My mind's in turmoil don't know what to do
I'm in despair that's why I'm writing to you

I'm sure she doesn't know how I feel
It's something I can never reveal
Oh no
How on earth to get her out of my head
Stop thinking about her here in my bed
No no no

Dear Susan what you going to say
Tell me I should move away
maybe take a holiday

Can't tell her that I'm falling in love
She's the only one I'm thinking of
I can't tell her that every night I'm praying
To the Lord above
That she's going to fall for me
gonna be our destiny
But I know in my heart of hearts that it can never be


Dear Susan please give me a clue
Tell me what you think I should do
Without betraying the friend that I love
I can't tell him who I'm thinking of

I don't think that he would ever suspect
A friend who's always earned his repect
Oh no
Just stop me going out of my mind
Don't care if you're words are unkind
No no

Can't tell her that I'm falling in love
She's the only one I'm thinking of
I can't say that every night I'm praying
To the Lord above
She's going to fall for me
gonna be our destiny
But I know in my heart of hearts that it can never be

Dear Susan

I was born in Nebraska when my ma was in her teens
Romping in a haystack while her dad was picking greens
When she told him about me my pa just ran away
And now I think about him I think about him every day

Asked my ma about him she refused to say his name
Grandpa died when I was young and Grandma did the same
Sometimes I sit and wonder if he ever thinks of me
The kid that he abandoned when he wanted to be free

Abandoned by my father
Guess he didn't give a damn
Abandoned and discarded
Left alone without a plan
Why am I still trying to find him
When the dumb ass walked away
It's something that I can't answer
I got nothing left to say

I gotta start moving on now and put this thing to bed
Try ending all the questions that are messing with my head
I guess I'll never find him that's unless he looks for me
But that ain't gonna happen got to face reality

Ma it must have been so hard to bring me up all on your own
I'm aware of the sacrifices you have made as I have grown
I hope that every time you look at me you see it straight away
How something really good came from you romping in the hay

Abandoned by my father
Guess he didn't give a damn
Abandoned and discarded
Left alone without a plan
Why am I still I trying to find him
When the dumb ass walked away
It's something I can't answer
I got nothing left to say

Drinking made a mess of me
Hit the bottle at twenty three
Couldn't take it any more
In rehab at twenty four

In again at twenty five
They said I shouldn't be alive
First day out goddamn I tried
Contemplated suicide

No control another glass
In the gutter on my ass
Seeing stars not in the sky
Begging God don't let me die

Drinkings messing with my brain
Think it's driving me insane
Had enough and that's for sure
Hell I don't wanna drink no more

I Wish that I could stop today
And make this madness go away
Drink is all I'm living for
Another glass then ask for more

There aint a beer that I aint tried
Whiskey chaser on the side
Eyes bloodshot and vision blurred
Martini shaken never stirred

Drinkings messing with my brain
Think it's driving me insane
Had enough and that's for sure
Hell I don't wanna drink no more

Looking at me

Verse 1

The minute you stormed out the door
I knew it was over of that I was sure
Can't say I blame you, I hurt you, I shamed you
And you couldn't take it no more

Verse 2

I've done some dumb stuff in my time
And said crazy things when I've had too much wine
But this time I blew it, immediately knew it
I must have been out of my mind.

Chorus

Come back to me please I beg you
My life is so empty don't know what to do
Lets get back together I'll love you forever
And make all your wishes come true

Verse3
Always went under its spell
Boozing and I were a match made in hell
Cursing accusing but never amusing
No wonder you bid me farewell

Verse 4
Stopped drinking, I wont start again
After its caused so much heartache and pain
I promise its over been clean since October
And thats how Its gonna remain

Chorus

Come back to me please I beg you
My life is so empty don't know what to do
Lets get back together I'll love you forever
And make all your wishes come true

The minute you stormed out the door

You ran back to your ma and left me sitting here alone
Just when I started thinking that our love had grown
You didn't give me any reason why
I never hurt you never told you a lie
I'm a heartbroken man and I'm living in a twighlight zone.

Take my money, take may car
I'm gonna treat you like a movie star
I'll give you gold diamond rings
come back babe I'll give you anything

Just tell me why you left me I haven't got a heart of stone
Don't leave me guessing I'm begging you to pick up the phone
You've treated me really bad
The only girl that I've ever had
I'm a heartbroken man and I'm living in a twighlight zone.


Take my money, take may car
I'm gonna treat you like a movie star
I'll give you gold diamond rings
come back babe I'll give you anything
