The Worry List

I’m tired of twisted barely breathing buried in the dark
What could’ve been
Don’t be concerned it’s just the power of a breaking heart
How good am I hiding it?
Look I’ve got some bad intentions
Guilty as fucking charged
Still standing stable more than able
‘Cause I know who you are
I know the birthdays, anniversaries, all the first days I missed
I regret them all
But now know this
I know that God exists
I held her in my arms
I never knew I was able to ever feel this strong
Take me off your worry list
You’ll be better that way
I’m really fine
And more, there’s nothing we haven’t talked about
So take me off your worry list
I said throw it away
This is what my life is about
I might have been gone but I never walked out.
I’ve taken a thousand red-eyes
To change your point of view
What kind of man would take the trust you break
And still follow through
‘Cause I’m standing right here
And you may not show up
Same gate 14
Where honestly, I’m just sick of calling your bluff
And it’s just embarrassing
I nearly threw up
Well, I’m trying hard to change the things I always screw up
And at the top of my list
This visitation’s no relationship
But I gotta make the best of it
‘Cause I know
I know that God exists
I held her in my arms
I never knew I was able to ever feel this strong
Take me off your worry list
It’ll be better that way
I’m doing fine
And I’ve got plenty of friends around
Take me off your worry list
Just throw it away
Well, it’s time to stand up on my own for her
‘Cause I’m packing it up
And I’m coming today
I couldn’t wait to finally pick my family up
Everything is quiet and covered in snow
There’s something wrong here
Nobody’s at home
no no no no no no no no no
I’m back in the driver’s seat
Heading back home
Yeah, back to Texas
On my own
Take me off your worry list
It’ll be better that way
I’m doing fine
And I’ve got plenty of friends around
Take me off your worry list
Just throw it away
Yeah, it’s time to stand up on my own for her
I’m packing it up
And I’m coming today
This is what my story’s about
I might have been gone but I never walked out.
Yeah, I packing it up
And I’m coming today
This is what your story’s about
My pretty little girl, can you figure it out
If it helps to know so there is no doubt
Just listen to the stories
Not everything is glorious
Some hurt, some love, some shout
I fought the world and I lost that bout
And you are what my album’s about
I might’ve been gone but I never walked out
