Leaving Your Own Best Friend Behind

Words & Music by Christopher Kent
One day you’re shining
The next you’re dry as dust
And it can leave you crying
Thinking that you’re just a loser
Well I know you’re weary
Of city streets and walls
And riding in a barrel
Waiting for the falls
It can leave you wondering what you’re looking for

It’s so easy to lose your mind
For moonlight dancing in your wine
Leaving your own best friend behind

Just when you think you’re winning
It always starts to rain
And it can leave you broken
Like a window on a subway train
Well things keep on changing
They just never turn around
There’s always one more stranger
Trying to bring you down
Trying to burn you to the ground

It’s so easy to lose your mind
For moonlight dancing in your wine
Leaving your own best friend behind

I know you’re thinking
You’ve got nowhere left to go
And you have lost your faith
In things you used to know
But it’s so damned easy losing track
Of honesty and friends
And one day you’re looking back
On nothing but loose ends
Nothing but loose ends

God it’s easy to lose your mind
For moonlight dancing in your wine
Leaving your own best friend behind
