I TOOK A DIVE
I’VE BEEN WALKING DOWN THE ROAD
I’VE BEEN THINKING WHAT YOU SAID
DRAGGIN’ ON A CIGARETTE
EVEN THOUGH I’M SOAKING WET
I’VE BEEN TALKING TO MYSELF
TELLING ME, I WILL REGRET
I’VE BEEN STARING AT THE MOON
I’VE BEEN SLEEPING WHERE I CAN
I’M A SAD AND LONELY MAN
SINCE MY HEART ACHE’N BEGAN
WHEN YOU THREW ME OUT THE DOOR
I WAS WASHED UP ON THE SHORE
I TOOK A DIVE – INTO AN EMPTY POOL
A POOL OF TEARS – AND NOW I’M THE BROKEN FOOL
WHO’S TREATING YOU LIKE I DO.
I SPEND MY COLD AND TROUBLED NIGHTS
IN SOME DOORWAY,IN MY BAG
WONDERING HOW IT CAME TO THIS
THINKING BOUT THE TIMES WE HAD
BUT IT WAS ME THAT TOOK THAT DIVE
AND THERE AIN’T NO TURNING BACK
