Cut to the Bone

Lookin’ for a sign
A sign of love 1
Up and down the line
That’s what I’m in search of

Things were so simple
Back in the day
Her twinkle, her dimples
Why did I stray?

Now I’m all alone
With no one but myself to blame 2
Like a cut to the bone
Hurts just the same

The decisions I’ve made
The pain I’ve caused
Questions linger then fade
Two steps forward then paused

I’m so completely all alone
Ran from all that shared my name
Like a cut to the bone
Hurts just the same

No one cries for me
So I won’t cry for myself
No one’s tied to me
Emotions shelved

I still hear that piano
Playing in my head
Too many beers with Dano
All those things I said . . .

O.G. Hawkins
