I Wrote It Down ©2016 Karen Potje

I’ve been digging deep inside my pockets for that bright idea
Hope it wasn’t just the red wine talking when things seemed so clear
On a tattered piece of paper, just a scrap of envelope
Wrote a brand new strategy to live my life, I hope

Though I’m not that keen on drinking and I never drink alone
I did some of my best thinking at that table on my own
With a borrowed ball point pen, a bar room logo, bleeding ink
Went through everything again and worked it out, I think

It might take a quick review of my brand new set of rules
What am I supposed to do in my new life without you?
Yeah, I’m positive I’ve found how to turn myself around
If I can’t quite remember now, that’s fine, I wrote it down

With the waitress taking orders, the bartender pouring beers
In that dark and smoky corner there I poured out my last tears
Pulled the cork on one more bottle, made my mind up there and then
How to find myself – or someone else – and start again

It might take a quick review of my brand new set of rules
What am I supposed to do in my new life without you?
Yeah, I’m positive I've found how to turn myself around
If I can’t quite remember now, that’s fine, I wrote it down

He was waiting at that table that I’ve come to think is mine
Sitting studying the label of that too familiar wine
Then he caught my eye and flashed a smile, said “I’ve seen you around”
Got his name and number somewhere now, I wrote it down

It might take a quick review of my brand new set of rules
What am I supposed to do with a new love, without you?
Yeah, I’m positive I’ve found how to turn myself around
If I can’t quite remember now, that’s fine, I wrote it down
If I can’t quite remember now, that’s fine, I wrote it down
