Start Somewhere

Album: Tonight (2010)

  • Last night, everything was movin' so fast
    I could barely keep track
    Oh, of my offenses or your defenses
    In hindsight, I woulda, coulda, shoulda not gone there
    But left without a word to spare
    Was it your offenses or my defensiveness?

    That's got me thinkin' that we're never gonna get it right
    I wanna straighten this before the sun goes down tonight
    If I could only fight the bitterness I feel inside
    This thing is eatin' me alive

    Well I'm right here
    And you're right there
    And God knows we've got to start somewhere
    'Cause I'm messed up
    And you're broken
    And those shots we fired are still smokin'

    Well I'm right here
    And you're right there
    And God knows we've got to start somewhere
    'Cause I'm messed up
    And you're broken
    And those shots we fired are still smokin'

    I'm tossin' and turnin' on the things I'd undo
    As I wrestle with the painful truth
    Oh, my sleep escapes me as guilt berates me
    Exhausted, the memories are drawing so near
    I can see it like a world premiere
    When did my objective lose all objectiveness?

    That's got me thinkin' that we're never gonna get it right
    I wanna straighten this before the sun goes down tonight
    If I could only fight the bitterness I feel inside
    This thing is eatin' me alive

    Well I'm right here
    And you're right there
    And God knows we've got to start somewhere
    'Cause I'm messed up
    And you're broken
    And those shots we fired are still smokin'

    If I need you, and you need me
    How can you turn your back and just leave me?
    When I'm right here, and you're right there
    And God knows we've got to start somewhere

    I said some things that I regret
    And if I could, I'd take 'em back
    If I could turn my words around
    You wouldn't hear a sound

    But here I am, and there you are
    The space between us is not so far
    I'm reaching out my hand in love
    Before the fading sun, forgive me for what I've done

    Hey, hey
    Hey, hey
    Hey, hey

    Well I'm right here
    And you're right there
    And God knows we've got to start somewhere
    'Cause I'm messed up
    And you're broken
    And those shots we fired are still smokin'

    If I need you, and you need me
    How can you turn your back and just leave me?
    When I'm right here, and you're right there
    And God knows we've got to start somewhere

    The gun shot's gotta go, man. That's it.
    I mean, enough is enough.
