Getting Started

 

My feet are tired and all I'd like to do 
Is find myself a good rocking chair 
With a shoebox of photographs and a pack of matches 
Then I'll get started on forgetting you 

Well my eyes are heavy and all I'd like to do 
Is find a hammock hanging in the shade 
When I feel that wind blowing between my toes 
Then I'll get started on forgetting you 

My throat is dry and all I'd like to do 
Is find myself with a brew in my hand 
With the moon in the sky and a few good friends 
Then I'll get started on forgetting you 

We've both been lost our share of times 
All tangled in vines of wine and lies 
Until one night in a dream 
Goodbye, good luck, godspeed 

I'm getting started on forgetting you 
I'm getting started on forgetting you 
Found my best screwdriver for that last turn of the screw 
Now I'll get started on forgetting you
