Dead And Gone, By Dennis OgleThese are the lyrics to a song off my solo release. I've been clean and sober for 11 1/2 years. I think they fit the category.
DEAD AND GONE
I don't exactly know
where I've been all this time
It's like I just woke up and
walked into someone else's life
All my friends are here but sometimes
I feel like a stranger
'Cause the man they knew before
is surely dead and gone
I've got no patience for a lifestlyle I've forgotten
Feel a touch of guilt sometimes
'cause I feel like I should understand
It took half my life to realize,
I've been throwing away my precious time
I try to keep lookin' forward these days
'cause yesterday is surely dead and gone
And when my angels come to free my soul
I hope they find me hard at work on my piano
And on my last day, if my last page
looks like I might,ve had a little mor to say
But I'm already dead and gone....
Do me a favor, pick up that pen and paper
And finish this song.
