Old Violin Lyrics
Well I can't recall, one time in my life,
I've felt as lonely, as I do tonight.
I feel like I can lay down, and get up no more,
It's the damndest feelin'; I never felt it before.

Tonight I feel, like an old violin,
Soon to be put away, and never played again.
Don't ask me why I feel like this, hell I can't say.
I only wish this feelin', would just go away.

I guess it's cause the truth,
Is the hardest thing I ever faced,
Cause you can't change the truth,
In the slightest way, I tried.

So I asked myself,
I said, "John, where do you go from here"
Then like a damn fool,
I turned around and looked in the mirror.

And there I saw, an old violin,
Soon to be put away, and never played again.

So one more time, just to be sure,
I said, "John, where in the hell do you go from here?"
You know there wasn't a nickels worth of difference,
When I looked in the mirror, that's when I knew.

There there I was seein', and old violin,
Soon to be put away, and never played again.

And just like that it hit me,
That old violin and I were just alike,
We give our all to music, and soon we'll give our life.
