late again (gettin’ over you) lyrics – kris kristofferson

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
