Steve Walsh – Serious Wreckage Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You don’t understand
So let me be fair
I was drivin’ in my car and
Suddenly a–a child   was   standin’ there
It was   dark on that street
But I can   still see his face
And if I could right now
I’d surely take his place
[Pre-Chorus 1]
So don’t tell me it’s alright
Don’t tell me it’s gonna be fine
A child is gone away
But he lives on inside my mind
[Chorus]
Serious wreckage
Makin’ my head swoon
Serious wreckage
Brown bag on the midnight moon
Serious wreckage
Wet, wet, bloody wet
One drink to remember
One more to forget that serious wreckage
[Verse 2]
He coulda changed the world
But look what he got
He coulda been everything
Everything that I am not
So I take flowers to the funeral
But I’ve forgotten how to grieve
And I struggle every night
With what to believe
[Pre-Chorus 2]
Do you see, can you see his face
[Chorus]
Serious wreckage
Makin’ my head swoon
Serious wreckage
Brown bag on the midnight moon
Serious wreckage
Wet, wet, bloody wet
One drink to remember
One more to forget that serious wreckage
Serious wreckage
Makin’ my head swoon
Serious wreckage
Brown bag on the midnight moon
Serious wreckage
Wet, wet, bloody wet
One drink to remember
One more to forget that serious wreckage
[Bridge]
And the walking wounded carry their innocent son
With a heavy heart they bury their anger
I can stay sober one more day, yeah
And the walking wounded carry their innocent son
With a heavy heart the walking wounded celebrate his sojourn with others
If I take a chance and walk with them
I can stay sober one more day, yeah
[Pre-Chorus 1]
So don’t tell me it’s alright
No, don’t tell me it’s gonna be fine
A child that left this world
Is living on inside my mind (Inside my mind)
(Ooh ooh, ooh ooh)
