I’m Not In Love

Friday night hit like a train
I woke up to the sound of the rain
Rachael’s gone, she’s long over me
Not in love but neither in pain

Light one up and finish my beer
Cheap champagne and a Happy New Year
She’s the best that I ever had
Broken hearts make the best souvenirs

I’m not in love, as strange as that sounds
It’s just me and I’m bringing myself down
I’ve been lucky just to make it this far
Christmas Eve and it’s time to leave town

Late last night on the freeway I prayed
For the strength just to wake up today
There’s no girl lonely waiting for me
So I’ll take a moment to say, “I’m not in love”

Seventeen, my guitar in hand
That young man did not understand
April wind and Lucy’s lost eyes
Caught my heart at the old baby grand

We’ve grown up, we’ve both come so far
But tonight I’m alone at the bar
And by now you’re a long way from home
So happy birthday wherever you are

I’m not in love, as strange as that sounds
It’s just me and I’m bringing myself down
I’ve been lucky just to make it this far
Christmas Eve and it’s time to leave town

Late last night on the freeway I prayed
For the strength just to wake up today
There’s no girl lonely waiting for me
So I’ll take a moment to say, “I’m not in love”

If I could rewind, turn back the time
Divine peace of mind just to say
That the years are unkind but we learn from our crimes
And one day you find you’re doing okay
