Better Than Nothin’

this feelin’?

this feelin’, right here?

this is what life is made of

reclining in your bed at night

you feel it, too

sometimes you can hardly close your eyes

when you do

it’s waiting

it wraps you up tight

tight

tighter

you think you might not be able to take another breath

 

you can taste it, too

did you know?

it’s sour

musty

it dries up your mouth

and makes it so you can’t hardly swallow

even if you did

you’d get that sick feeling in your gut

 

when you get that anxious jitter

in your feet?

there it is all over

that wringin’ your hands?

that’s it, too

but you know?

I’ll take it any day

any feelin’ is better than

no feelin’
