My Music

SLOWLY BUT SURELY

After I knew you had left me…
I swept my heart up off the floor,
I put the pieces in a drawer.
Thought I’d maybe let them sleep a lifetime or two.

Now when I thumb through the memories….
Sometimes they almost make me smile.
Thought it was going out of style, but
SLOWLY BUT SURELY I’m getting over you.

Where did you get all your enlightenment?
When you said you thought our love was not exactly
heaven-sent.
I was too happy, now that you mention it!

After I knew you had left me….
I wept till all the tears ran dry,
So now there’s no tears left to cry ’cause
SLOWLY BUT SURELY I’m getting over you.

Just tell me…
How did you come by such enlightenment?
When you said you thought our love would only cause me discontent.
Guess I was lucky if that’s true…..ooooh, well,

Someday when you’re sad and lonely…..
You’ll look down the road and see somebody waiting
But it won’t be me ’cause
SLOWLY BUT SURELY I’m getting over you!
