The Great Big F




22 and I'm heading for the gym
Working off my ass at the brand new job
Money's good but I'm running out of time
Was gonna buy the ring before the party last night
And it's 1:30 on a stranger's cot
All fuzzy and I can't find my phone
Still up, I'll down another shot
Why not? She's not a stranger anymore

Where are you now?
Why have you abandoned me?

39 and I think I've had enough
She's on a plane 'cause her mom is real sick
Tom's always talking 'bout The Great Big F
Forgiveness...that's the real trick
Two weeks alone with the boys is a lot
I'm looking old in this photograph
It's still the best high I ever got
Why not? It's been a year and a half

24 was too damn young
So much fire in the both of us
Now the snow uncovers everything
And everything is a lot to discuss
She's coming home to this very spot
I'm in the closet now with all I've got left
Don't know why but we'll take another shot
Why not? Maybe it's The Great Big F

Where are you now?
Why have you abandoned me?
