Balsam Range - The Future's Not What It Used To Be lyrics


I left Decatur hell bent to forget
Bought a ticket to Skowhegan, Maine
I wound up in Seattle too drunk and too rattled
To know that I caught the wrong train

I met some fast easy women and some hard drinking men
Trying to drown the sorrow in me
Oh I once had a lot but the future is not
Not what it used to be

Ooh the years, they went by and I went steadily down
'Til I had no place I could go
I made the soup lines by morning and the dives every night
Wrecking my body and soul

And then I met a lady and in time she made me forget
Yes her love set me free
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/balsam-range/five/the-futures-not-what-it-used-to-be.html]

No we ain't got a lot but the future is not
Not what it used to be

Oh I never thought I could live to get older
For the past cut a hle deep in me
But now there's a chance I'll be here a while longer
And at least now I wanna be

Somebody told me that you were in town
And I found out today
And you know I'm sorry to hear that you're down
But honey what can I say?

I know your sorrow, I know your pain
Don't know I know your need?
Cause I once loved you a lot, but girl the future is not
Not what it used to be
