guide me/mid life blues

Guide me

Trapped in a place I never wanted to be
Lost at sea and lost in land
In need of a helping hand
Mother earth has given birth
To a new breed of weather
And it’s as hard as leather

The changing times ring out their chimes
Not for freedom or wealth fare
Cos it’s ringing in dispair
Floods droughts and tidal waves
A warning in the air
Time to say a morning prayer

Broken hearts and misguided souls
Someone guide me out of this mess
I never got to see her wedding dress
For she walked through the wrong door
Now I’m left to pick up the pieces
Seems like the pain just increases

Chorus
Don’t deny me c’mon and guide me
Untie the chains and set me free
I believe in a higher judge than you or me
C’mon and guide me hear my plea

You look at me like I’m a fool
Throwing your stones I ache to the bone
But you Ain’t the king I see upon the throne
Get down from your high horse
If you know it all like you say
Then show me how to keep hells fire at bay

Chorus
Don’t deny me c’mon and guide me
Untie the chains and set me free
I believe in a higher judge than you or me
C’mon and guide me hear my plea

Red tape hell’s gate
Pin stripes black ties
See the sadness in our eyes
Taxed up fed up
Broke and defeated
Can’t help but feel cheated

Chorus
Don’t deny me c’mon and guide me
Untie the chains and set me free
I believe in a higher judge than you or me
C’mon and guide me hear my plea

Mid life blues

Turned around couldn’t see where it all fell down

Hopes and dreams the constant swimming upstream

Wife and kids have long gone away

Can’t seem to find a brighter day

Hopeless and forlorn

Hating the day you were born

Is it time to rock this boat

Can’t believe I lost my right to vote

Cos I’ve been drifting far too long

Somehow managed to scrape along

Never did stand a chance

Caught up in a ghosts dance

chorus

Father never got to see 49

Guess I’m running outta time

Got the mid life blues

Hate my job but love my booze

Holy father hear my prayer

We’re gonna meet again soon I swear

Living in this dead end town

Every day it strips you down

Working your life away

Till your eyes are just a charcoal grey

Heart tangled up in misery

The only escape is the cemetery

The hands of time cold and hard

Holding god’s calling card

Leaving me second guessing

As just to when I will get my final blessing

Every second counts

As the wolf begins to pounce

chorus

Father never got to see 49

Guess I’m running outta time

Got the mid life blues

Hate my job but love my booze

Holy father hear my prayer

We’re gonna meet again soon I swear

Ain’t gonna worry about my mid life blues

It’s a game were all gonna loose

I was just checking my souls clock

Cos it will soon be in the dock

Still got time to see the light

It’s not over yet not by a long sight
