What losers miss
Everlasting…
is the word that comes to mind…
When I sit down to ponder
All the things I’ve left behind

Things that could have lasted
Forever and forever
and should have…
Had I taken the time to mind

To the things that really mattered
‘stead of chasin’ after the moon
Playin’ cards, playin’ at life
(and drinkin’ so much wine)

Everlastin’…
is one thing
That seems to be lackin’
In this ol’ boy’s life

Like the lack of
Family memories
A good home
And a lovin’ wife

As I tip this bottle back
And look at the stars above
I deeply feel the profound lack
…of everlasting love…
