VERSE 1

i could use a tonic as    much as a change

cause the kind advice of strangers is starting to give way

now i'm more in favor of letting up than going in

there's nothing like a race that i don't wanna win    

 

and then there you    were

 

CHORUS

 

you look like the excuse something i could use to ease my mind

something like a prayer but the opposite i swear cause you're standing still in time

that's how, you ease my mind

 

VERSE 2

i'm still getting used to letting comfort in

i relied on wine and television but even that wore thin

i ask for your opinions, you say it's not the truth

you try to get me settled down so i'll know just what to do

PRE:

you stay by my side

CHORUS

 

BRIDGE

all the books and magazine with self help gurus selling dreams

so i worry not, when life gets hot because you cool me down

 

CHORUS
