Paycheck, Johnny - 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 could 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'd you go from here?'
Then like a damned 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 that when a nickel's worth of difference
And I looked in the mirror, that's when I knew

That there I was seein', an 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'd give our all to music
And soon, we'd give our life
