Little Victories

Got myself out of bed today

Finally had a shave

Came face to face in the mirror

Called the boss, said I’ll be in

He said, how you been

I said I’m seeing things a little clearer

Chorus:

And on my way

I passed your street and

I kept going, I kept breathing

It may not mean anything to you

But it does to me

Little victories

I made it through to quitting time

you still haunt my mind

But at least I’m off the ledge

Got in the car and headed home

Turned on the radio

Tuned out the static in my head

Bridge:

When the sun comes up I’ll start all over

Take one step and then another

I pray someday I’ll be over you

Last Chorus:

And tomorrow

When I pass your street

I’ll keep going, I’ll keep breathing

It may not mean one damn thing to you

But it does to me

Little victories
