Sitting on a barstool
Thinking of loves lost
I'm taking a breather
From all that it cost

Smiling and a laughing
At all my mistakes,
Keep those heated night girls,
Its not what it takes see

chorus: I've stumbled (fallen on my face)
I've tumbled (even out of grace)
But here I go again
Tryin' to get love straight.
trying to get love straight

Bridge Holding myself back, it's so hard to do
Especially when I see such potential in you
so what do I do?
(back to chorus)

It's hard to be open
It takes such a risk
Weighing the consequence
of all that I've missed

Looking for direction
My heart leads the way
So many pretty women,
Who have gotten away...
what can I say?
