I’m Doing Okay

Man, I should have known
She’d walk into this dancehall
And she wouldn’t be alone

Wearing my favorite dress
Looking better than ever
My hope now a fading mess

Her magnificent eyes leave his gaze
Across the room she sees my stare
Pupils clouded in a bloodshot haze

Oh no, she’s coming over here
Her hand unfolds from his
Mine holds firmly to a beer

As she leaves his side
She offers him a kiss
I need a place to hide

Everyone keeps saying
move on, make a new start
But I’m fraying
Trying not to fall apart

She’s walking up to me
and offering an embrace
Me with nowhere to flee
Her all beautiful grace

I hope it isn’t showing
When she asks “Well…
How’s it going?”

What in the hell
am I going to say?

I don’t eat, I don’t sleep,
and I no longer pray
But outside of that
I’m doing okay

I’m looking for the door
The room is spinning
She’s out on the floor

He’s holding her tight
The way I once did
I can’t take the sight

Her smile is wide
As he dances her around
Is there anywhere to hide?

I’m lost in what could have been
While she’s making memories with him
And I can’t stop thinking about when

Everyone kept saying
move on, make a new start
But I’m still fraying
Trying not to fall apart

She walked up to me
and offered her embrace
Me with nowhere to flee
Her all beautiful grace

I hope it wasn’t showing
When she asked “Well…
How’s it going?”

What in the hell
Should I say?

I don’t eat, I don’t sleep,
and I no longer pray
But outside of that
I’m doing okay

Can I really say
To the one who got away?

I don’t eat, I don’t sleep,
and I no longer pray
But hey, outside of that,
I’m doing okay
