Phone

This was written during a dark time. I had just moved to Stratford and the local people were not that warm to me at 1st. It took time to feel ‘part of the community’ and accepted.
This was written from feelings at 1st. (a couple of people kept in touch with since leaving Stratford and do feel they are friends)

PHONE

I woke up like I do everyday
Hopin’ for the best
Doin’ the things I think I should
To fit in with the rest

I’m sitting here getting drunk
lookin’ at the phone
I said I’m sitting here getting drunk
lookin’ at the phone

My days go by so quiet
But what can I do
To live in a world alone
I don’t wish it for you

I’m sitting here getting drunk
lookin’ at the phone
I said I’m sitting here getting drunk
lookin’ at the phone

As my day draws to a close
I sit and I think
Of the other places I could be
And I have another drink

So I’m sitting here getting drunk
Lookin’ at the phone
I said I am sitting here getting drunk
Just lookin’ at the phone.
