Been Around

Disco: Been Around [2020]
Autor: Erin Patricia Moran

Been around enough to know I’m broken

Been around enough to know nothing’s sure

Been around enough to be a little grateful

Been around enough to miss my heart when it was pure

Been around enough to know the story

Been around enough to know how it ends

Been around enough to tell the smoke from the mirror

Been around enough to tell the true from fair-weather friends

 

I’ve been around enough to dry some tears

Been around enough to trace the years upon my face

This is the place I’m happy to be

 

Been around enough to know that winter

Is gonna guarantee another spring

Cage a singin’ bluebird and you’ll never

Never ever get that bird to sing

Been around enough to know I’m lonesome

Been around enough to know it’ll pass

If I give it time and maybe open my heart

Been around enough to know the die is never cast

 

Carrying around the weight of a lifetime of dreaming

Never really seen the end of the road

If losers never quit then I’m thoroughly equipped

To keep on keeping on
