Time Is a Healer (Worked for me)

Liner Notes: 

here's a song I've written based off a quote my friends dad actually said to him. any thoughts or suggestions welcome.

Lyrics: 

Verse 1
woke up to a heartless message
what a way to be told
that I've been dumped
and left out in the cold
not sure i have it in me
to pick myself up from the shame
so I called up my dad and said
"how will I ever love again"?

Chorus
He said
"Time is a healer
with no medical baggage
no physical surgery needed
to remove all of your sadness
If I could I would skip a few episodes
just so you could see
that time is a healer
that'll work for you, just like it worked for me"

Verse 2
Been moping about for days
still wearing the same clothes
hiding myself from everyone
I suspect they already know
I'm not ready to face the fact
that I've been left all alone
my dad's knocking on the window
hey son, please answer your phone

Chorus
He said
"Time is a healer
with no medical baggage
no physical surgery needed
to remove all of your sadness
If I could I would skip a few episodes
just so you could see
that time is a healer
that'll work for you, just like it worked for me"

Verse 3
It's been long enough now
maybe I should make a fresh start
I've finished licking my wounds
picking the stitches out of my heart
so I called up an old friend
and said "I'm ready to go out"
meet me in town about half past 7
he said "what's this all about"?

Outro/Chorus
I said
"Time is a healer
with no medical baggage
no surgery was required
to remove all of my sadness
I've let it take it's toll
now finally I can see
that time is a healer
it's worked it's magic on me



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Really enjoyed this, Stevie. Smile Good storytelling; conversational, and plenty of movement from one verse to the next. Sympathetic characters, and a nice sense of warmth in the father's advice in the chorus. Wink I especially like this image:
Time is a healer
