What if I was Just Getting Started
December 1, 2006

What if I was just getting started
Not even out of the gate and already outsmarted
Brokenhearted

Can't even get my adrenaline flowing
My get up and go up and going
or my confidence growing

If you grabbed me by the shirttail and held me back
Tripped me up, stacked the deck
Would you let me win the race
Or save my place?

If I stumble from out of the gate
Overslept, woke up late
Would you let me start again
and be my friend?

A faster start, a racing heart, a cautious mind struck loveblind
A trip and fall, a mental wall, a false ambition left behind
A tightrope walk out on the limb, a way to win
A tightening panic hidden by a knowing grin

What if I was only getting started?
A warning shot before we parted
Brokenhearted

Can't seem to get the blood flowing
The numbness growing
Overflowing for all to see

If I stumble from where I sit
Under react, throw a fit
Would you let me start again
and be my friend?

What if I was just getting started
Just arrived and now departed
Brokenhearted

Would you relent and be my friend
I'm way too tired to start again
