From the recording Things That Might Have Been

Another in a long line of breakups.  I had had enough.  Really had it.  I did one of those things where you tell yourself to appreciate what you have and forget about the past.  I'm counting all my blessings, that was my first thought.  Took off from there.  Can't say it was entirely believable at first to me but it did help and got me a few more miles down the road.

Lyrics

I’M COUNTING ALL MY BLESSINGS
I’M THANKING ALL MY FRIENDS
I’M TRYING TO REMEMBER
HOW TO LOVE AGAIN
I’M LOOKING ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
I’M LETTING THE SUNSHINE IN
CAUSE I AIN’T GOT NO USE
FOR THE THINGS THAT MIGHT’VE BEEN
 
I WAKE UP IN THE MORNING
ANOTHER DAY BEGINS
I LOOK INTO THE MIRROR
AND PRACTICE HOW TO SMILE AGAIN
I CAN SMELL THE ROSES
AND I CAN FEEL THE WIND
AND I AINT GOT NO USE FOR THE THINGS THAT MIGHT’VE BEEN
 
BRIDGE
READ YOUR LETTER FOR THE LAST TIME
BURNED IT UP AND HAD A GOOD CRY
TOOK THE ASHES TO THE RIVER
MADE A WISH AND TOSSED THEM IN
 
I LAY DOWN IN THE EVENING
LET THE DREAMS ROLL IN
LAST NIGHT I DREAMED THAT I HAD
LEARNED HOW TO LOVE AGAIN
I GUESS SOMETIMES YOU LOSE
AND THEN SOMETIMES YOU WIN
AND I AIN’T GOT  NO USE FOR THE THINGS THAT MIGHT’VE BEEN
 
BRIDGE
TOOK A WALK DOWN BY THE OLD SCHOOL
SAW THAT SWING WHERE I FIRST KISSED YOU
I SAT DOWN AND I SWUNG SO HIGH
I LET GO AND FLEW AWAY
 
I LAY DOWN IN THE EVENING…
