Backside Of Thirty

In the style of

John Conlee

Lyrics

makin' money at thirty
with a wife and a son
then a short
five years later
it all comes undone

she's gone back
to mama
with the boy
by her side
now i'm wine-drunk
and runnin'
with them on my mind

i'm on the
back side of thirty
and back on my own
an empty apartment
don't feel like a home

on the
back side of thirty
the short side of time
back on the bottom
with no will to climb

it's dawn
monday mornin'
and i just
called in sick

i skipped work
last friday
to drink
this month's rent

and when my friends
ask me
i tell 'em i'm fine
but my eyes
tell a story
that my lies can't hide

i'm on the
back side of thirty
and back on my own
an empty apartment
don't feel like a home

on the
back side of thirty
the short side of time
back on the bottom
with no will to climb
