Straight Up, No Chaser

I am so far down right now that my chin up is just going to have to wait for some other day.

Paramount - My Hand Bond Promises Remembered

Straight Up, No Chaser
by Michael Romani

Straight up, no chaser
I know I can't replace her
I doubt I ever really can
God, I wish I was a better man

Fell in love in the simplest way
I'll never forget that beautiful day
My God, I wish I could have her back
But, I'm not good enough, with what I lack

The sorrow inside, I can't easily hide
But, when she loved me, it was quite a ride
I loved her for what she saw in me
I was her beast; she was my beauty

Feeling my heart break right in two
Because I'll never belong where love was true
Feeling so very lost, dazed and confused
By the loss of a love that never refused

And I know that I'm the only one to blame
I own that knowledge in all of my shame
Blown smoke turned to flame's hot fire
Simple it seemed, I've never dreamed higher
