Reachin' For Nothin' - Poem by MacGregor Tagliaferro

Thought about comin' to see you
I thought about callin'
But this feelin', that is not new,
Has me, again, fallin'

Thought about doin' what I should
Thought about doin' right
'Stead of just doin' what I could,
Just followin' the night

Instead of doin' what I should
Instead of reachin' out to you
Instead of doin' what I could
Instead of reachin' for what's true
I'm reachin' for nothin'

I can't stop this lonely feelin',
That's with me night and day
That seems to always be stealin',
Me and blockin' the way

The way to go, I know is clear
I should do what it takes
To git back to you and what's dear
I can't and my heart breaks

Repeat chorus
