Took a little while, but I think I’m healed.
No other explanation for how I feel.
It’s like it’s okay, if I laugh or smile.
Like I won’t forget if I’m happy for a while.

I know it aint over yet.
There will be days you can bet.
But I feel like I’m staring at an open door.
My heart’s not broken anymore.

Aint it amazing what a woman can do.
When she’s got her love wrapped all over you.
She’ll make you believe it’s gonna be all right.
Hold her close and the beast rests tonight.


Took a little while, but I think I’m cured.
Be a few years, before I know for sure.
All I wanna do, is get some sleep.
So someone shut me up if I get too deep.



The Story
"I had written quite a few heartbreak songs over the years. I was informed by a certain special someone in no uncertain terms that my heart was no longer broken, and I could probably dispense with the sad songs for a while lest people get the wrong idea about our relationship. I do not believe in censorship, but sometimes you got to do what you're told to avoid rocking the boat."
