Get High

Album: 12 Stories (2013)
  • She hates her job, loves her kids
    Bored with her husband
    Tired of the same old list of things to do
    So when the to-dos have all been done
    She sits down at the kitchen table
    And rolls herself a fat one

    Smoke so sweet fills the air
    She maybe ought to crack a window
    But all she can do is stare at the paint
    That's been peeling off the walls
    A couple tokes and her troubles don't seem all that tall

    You know life will let you down
    Love will leave you lonely
    Sometimes to only way to get by
    Is to get high

    She laughs out loud at who she used to be
    A girl who'd a looked down on
    A woman's moking weed in her kitchen
    Sometimes she misses those younger days
    Seeing the world through rose colored glasses
    Instead of this purple haze

    You know life will let you down
    Love will leave you lonely
    Sometimes to only way to get by
    Is to get high

    So she tucks her kids in at night
    Kisses her husband turns off the light
    And talks to God
    Says Lord gel me accept what I cannot change
    But until I learn to do that
