Good Again
(c) and (p) 2004 Jody Blackwell, Sweet Amnesia Music (ASCAP)

You’d better go there alone
I’m not in any kind of mood
to tell a circle of shadowy faces
who I am and what I do

Drink a lot of wine
Make a bunch of new friends
Have the time of my life
only to lose it again

No, I’ll stay in this room
Keeping watch over the silence
Be the self-appointed guardian
of these uncertain times

You can call it jaded or
Holding out for a better end
But I’m saving up my graces for
when things are good again

All the hope in my veins
I used to treat it like water
Squeezing out torrential rains
on anyone who would loiter

Now I’m learning patience
Let the spaces draw me to them
I’m saving up all my graces for
when things are good again
