Twelve Steps

from by Jonathan Burks

lyrics

my battle with the bottle has brought me
to a place where there's nothing to loose
a landscape void and vacant
a sky too dark to be blue
I'm on the straight and narrow
walking that line so true
but wont no twelve steps take me
any closer to you

it's true I was cruel and selfish
it's true I was jealous and mean
but it wasn't my true heart speaking
was the demons I blithely set free
down in the wake of my folly
onward my feet they move
but won't no twelve steps take me
any closer to you

as I sift thru the wreckage
of the mess I made of my life
I cannot help but wonder
if I could have made you my wife
I know that you still love me
but not like you used to do
won't no twelve steps take me
any closer to you

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
