Dragged Down

Little something that fell together while I was playing guitar tonight…

Dragged Down
by Michael Romani

Feeling less than fulsome
Dragged down something awesome
Drinking to oblivion stage side
Letting my rage riff on a free ride

At the turn of someone's page
Dropped dime like a wise sage
Thought I knew more than I did
But you kept your secrets hid

Backslid hiding on the rear pew
Stumbled in the back waiting on a clue
My past went quicker than I thought
Like battles lost though bravely fought

Getting it through the thick of my head
Too many messed up things that I said
Watching your back as you waved goodbye
It's just as well, you didn't see me cry

Winding it down something slow
Fairly certain, I 've nowhere left to go
Thought that we were golden maybe forever
Turns out that I was something less than clever
