Timed Temperance

Lyrics by Nick Mirisola

(Verse 1)
Been through hell with love inside,
Can’t say that I just enjoyed the ride.
After the flames subside,
It’ll have toughened up my hide.
And by the end of the night,
can’t say I didn’t shed a little light.
Yeah by the end of the night,
can’t say I didn’t shed a little light.

(Chorus 1)
I’m hangin’ in there,
maybe not up on top,
maybe not by a lot,
but I’m not gonna stop no,
I’m not lettin’ go.
What may come might toss me around,
It might make me the clown,
but it can’t keep me down,
I’m not lettin’ go.
I’m not lettin’, no I’m not lettin’, no I’m not lettin’ go.

(Verse 2)
Spent all day up in the skies,
Up where the winged ones fly.
Braced my temperance for the worst,
Fell face first hit the ground and I cursed.
The ground left a bad taste in my mouth,
‘Cuz I thought by now I’d have it figured out.
Yeah the ground left a bad taste in my mouth,
‘Cuz I thought by now I’d have it figured out.

(Chorus 2)
I’m hangin’ in there,
maybe not up on top,
maybe not by a lot,
but I’m not gonna stop no,
I’m not lettin’ go.
What may come might toss me around,
It might make me the clown,
but it can’t keep me down,
I’m not lettin’ go.
I’m not lettin’, no I’m not lettin’, no I’m not lettin’ go.
