Nervous Breakdown

Nervous Breakdown

Carleen Anderson

Every mornin',
She woke up at dawn
Kissed her little baby,
Then she'd yawn
She'd go to work and
School, so tired she'd feel
She lost control, and circumstance took the wheel
Once upon a time she was
So full of hope
She maintained walkin'
on a tight rope
Then a decade passed,
Things stayed the same
Her mind went missin',
Just her body remained.

Her soul went runnin'
To find out if she'd been misplaced
How could I be lost
Stop the world let me get off
No peace could she find
The devil kept messin' with her mind
The girl was so tough, but
One day she had enough

Pardon the miss, she's gotta
right to have a
Nervous breakdown

Her baby's daddy left
She still got on fine
She fell in love again
But lost one more time
Woe to the day her heart began to decay
She tried to fight
But then her will ran away
To lose a dream
Is very hard to live with
Looked in the lost and found
Could not find it
Blessed be the child
God gave her, who wipes her tears
Lovin' the mother
Who's loved him all his years

But she was drownin'
And could not come
In from out there
Seemed like no way out
Storm and thunder all about
No peace could she find
The devil kept messin' with her mind
The girl was so tough, but
One day she had enough

Pardon the miss, she's gotta
right to have a
Nervous breakdown

Balancing one minute
Then her rope got too thin
Searchin' for solid ground
To turn her life around
No stranger to the struggle
She knows how to recover
Won't let the fall do her in
She will stand up again
Lawd, lawd, lawd yeah
Lawd have mercy yeah

Nervous breakdown
