Kris Kristofferson

Eye of the Storm


Maybe you bought all the lies that she told you

Maybe they tore you apart

Maybe she shrugged off your finest emotions

And carelessly walked on your heart


Life ain't for sissies

And you ain't no sissy, boy

Only the strongest survive

Bad love is better than no love at all

At least you know you're alive




         And thank God you still have your feelings

         And you're free to be easy and warm

         'Cause from here to the end is what matters, my friend

         And you're right at the peak of your form

         Still in the eye of the storm


Maybe you tried something too hard to handle

Maybe you took you a fall

Is it true that if not for the pain that you're feeling

It wouldn't have mattered at all

(Tell the truth)


All there is left between living and dying

Is loving or leaving alone

You can take it or leave it

Or make up your mind

To go fall on your ass on your own


**Repeat Chorus
