Feeling a bit lost
Who am I now?
I have to keep it all together somehow
Time to paint on a face
Is my mask on straight?
It’s fine really,
I’ll be feeling okay again
When it’s me time
Kid’s in bed time
I can hardly wait
No I mean it
This day is so long
I’ve just got to get through it
But am I wishing my life away
Just to drink that wine at the end of the day?
Do the small things really matter anyway?
Those little moments that will never be repeated?
The one’s drinking me can’t recall ?
I think they’re really what life’s all about
And I want to remember them
So I’ll chuck the wine out
