Time To Start Over Once Again

Time To Start Over Once Again
The first part of my life it seemed I was always out there running away,
maybe I was afraid of facing what it was life had for me that day.
I got in trouble time and again doing the things I wasn't supposed to,
I did things I'm not proud of yet I found myself a life anew.
I had to face my inner demons to realize how ugly I was inside,
always doing things hardheaded driven by my sense of pride.
each new place they sent me had a new set of rules to follow,
I never got to really know many people so my life was kind of hollow.
Time To Start Over Once Again-It was the path I found myself on,
One day here next day there until your sense of direction is gone.
Time To Start Over Once Again-This happened so much in my life,
at times it got depressing I felt like I was chasing my strife.
after finally settling down and getting on the right track,
I thought it was over and there would be no looking back.
On my 2nd Marriage things were going along quite good,
Next thing you know we got hit with an 100 year flood.
So I started anew again thinking I would see a better life,
Well after 14 years together leaving me was my wife.
I know this fork in the road has to lead to a better place,
for starting over all the time it's hard to keep the pace.
Time To Start Over Once Again-I'm ready to find my dreams,
I'm not giving up because constant change is life it seems.
Time To Start Over Once Again-It's really not a shame,
I won't point fingers for there's no one but me to blame.
