Always searching for the next good time
And what the world can bring
Always looking for the next big deal
And what it’s offering

Never thinking very far ahead
Don’t worry bout the cost
Never wanting much to understand
Or caring what gets lost

Always thinking that there’s time to change
Believing that I’m fine
Always doing what I want to do
And taking what is mine

Never listening to friends advice
For surely they don’t know
Never going to let them think I’m down
Or I’m out of control
Always needing more to get the fix
And more to pay the price
Always promising I’ll give it up
My own strength will suffice

Never thought that things would go this way
Won’t let them know the cause
Never going to let myself admit
The damage that it does

Always going through this cycle
Always starting up again
Always finding out the hard way
That there’s just no way to win

Never going stop the bleeding
Or the guilt or all the pain
So the shell of me that people see…
Is all that will remain

    It does seem to be that way, doesn't it? Insightful. Good stuff. David
