Liner Notes: 

I wrote this thinking country with the lyrics but hear a driving rock melody. Open to your collaborative music ideas!

Prompt was alcohol from song skirmish Facebook page

Lyrics: 

Imagining the Worst

V1
took a drag
off a cigarette
downed three shots
with no regret
chased them down
with a bottle of beer
wondered what
she’s doing there

PC1
imagined the worst...
head about to burst...

C1
would she still be coming back?
was I now just part of her past?
how long does love’s limbo last?
when hell freezes is it fast?

V2
took a walk
by the river’s edge
went to a bridge
stood on the ledge
saw her face in
the water below
cursed before
I headed home

PC2
imagined the worst...
heart about to burst...

C2
was she kissing someone else?
did she forget how our love felt?
for whom does her heart now melt?
am I forever on her shelf?

B
when she left
and said good bye
she kissed the tears
from my eyes
said she’d return
when she was wise
promised her love
and no more lies ....

PC3
imagined the worst...
life about to burst...

C1
would she still be coming back?
was I now just part of her past?
how long does love’s limbo last?
when hell freezes is it fast?

C2
was she kissing someone else?
did she forget how our love felt?
for whom does her heart now melt?
has she put me on her shelf?

OUTRO
imagined the worst...
love already burst...
