Lately, I've been singing the blues
For no apparent reason
I lay around on the couch
Piss and moan draggin' everyone down
Maybe, it's always been in the bloodstream
Maybe daddy was right when he told me
Boy, you're just like your momma
Keep your head up your ass all the time

I feel like a fool
Kickin myself black and blue for the choices I've made
Down and out
Stuck in the mud sinkin' fast gettin' worse everyday
Good Lord, won't you throw me a lifeline
A ray of hope in the sunshine
Won't you help me to find my happy ever after, Amen

Lately, I'm taking pills by the handful
The doctor told me I need 'em
Yea he wrote me a note and
Said I hope you have a hell of a time
They're too good, fill me up with a warm rush
The newspaper don't upset me as much
They ain't easy to swallow
But it's better than sleepin' all day

I'm high as a kite
At least for the time been killin' the pain in my heart
Lettin' go
Of the guilt and the shame that are tearin' my life apart
Good Lord, won't you keep me from crashin'
In anyway, shape, form, or fashion
Can't you fill my prescription
Happy ever after, Amen

Have mercy on me
Hear my pitiful prayer
I need your sympathy
Cause it feels like nobody cares about me
Since I quit takin' care of myself

Oh I'm tired, tired of the struggle
And tired of the lies that I've told
But I'm scared
Scared that my storybook ending will never unfold
Good Lord, I'm not much for confession
But if you can cure my depression
I swear I'll do better
Happy ever after, happy ever after
Happy ever after, Amen
