NO ONE ELSE

Made my blunder, all went wrong;
Now I wonder where I belong.
No one to blame but me.
Lost my bet, out of luck;
I can't get my life unstuck.
No one else I could be.

Got to find a brand new look;
Try to bind a new page in my book.
Someone to help me see.
Cast your part, find your equal;
Make a start on my sequel.
Someone to set me free.

Let our song fade too soon;
Played along till I lost the tune.
No one to blame but me.
Knew the words but not the why;
Saw the birds but not the sky.
No one else I could be.

Yet another song that had sat around, partially written, for a while. I had thought it was going to be a metal-ish rock song all along but once I got to finishing it found that it a fairly straight-forward minor blues. Not that it couldn't be performed either way...
