Kris Kristofferson - Late Again (Gettin' Over You) Lyrics

Woke up late again this morning
Cause I was late again last night
In the mood that I was born in
And my skin was feelin' tight
I took a short cut to the city
Had myself a drink or two
I got over feeling shaky
But I'm still not over you

God, I might as well forget you
You ain't never comin' true
Seems like ever since I met you
I've been gettin' over you

I don't crave no conversation
I don't need no sympathy
All I want is my old lady
That old lady wantin' me
So take me any way you want me
I'll take you any way I can
I don't want your sack of candy
Just some sweetness now and then

I got to get myself together
With someone who wants some too
Maybe I can learn to love her
While I'm a-gettin' over you

Kris Kristofferson Late Again (Gettin' Over You) Comments
  1. nancy cordero

    before the Lord?? when I heard 'Why me Lord'. I asked why you took EVERYTHING from me?? when I should've asked, "Why Me?? did you trust so much in me?? I was on the edge, only would've took a nudge.. yeah every day, I'm there.?? 100 percs in hand, bottle of whatever is there usually rum. so ez.. just sleep.. but that would hurt my grandkids. Lord you know I'm not that brave, to take my own life.. but it's there... I hurt soo much, I won't give up till my Mom passes.. once she goes,, I'll be done..
