Lyrics

Well I did alright for a month or so
I kept my distance from the places that we used to go
together hand and hand just like lovers you and me
but here I am again where I'm not supposed to be
yes I remember everything that we've been through
but that don't change a thing so tell me what am I supposed to do

Cause I've tried denial I've tried to cope
I've tried whiskey baby I've tried dope
I've chased other women but that just ain't gonna do
I need a 12 step program to get me over you

I may seem fine but I'm dysfunctional at best
I keep my playing cards up close against my chest
don't want nobody trying to peek into my hand
no one can see 'cause I'm afraid someone might understand
I ain't got nothin' I'm just bluffin' all around
and I always have to fold when it’s finally time to lay 'em down

I need a sponsor I need a group
I need somebody gonna give me the straight scoop
I need a method tried and true
I need a 12 step program to get me over you

I'm just a junkie with invisible tracks
a good for nothin' flunkie laid back and lax
I'm an old friend of Bill who never had a drink
but I'm standing at the edge and I'm close to the brink
yes I belong in some co-dependent club
I'm a cripple with a crutch addicted to your love

I need a sponsor I need a group
I need somebody gonna give me the straight scoop
a higher power pull me through
I need a 12 step program to get me over you
