Текст песни Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Starting Over

[Intro: Macklemore]1,2, now[Verse 1: Macklemore]Those three-plus years, I was so proud ofThen I threw them all away for two Styrofoam cupsThe irony, everyone will think that "He lied to me"Made my sobriety so public, there's no fucking privacyIf I don't talk about it then I carry a dateA "08/10/08" that now has been changedAnd everyone that put me in some box as a saintThat I never was, just a false prophet that never cameAnd will they think that everything that I've written has all been fake?Or will I just take my slip to the grave?What the fuck are my parents gonna say?The success story that got his life together and changedAnd you know, what pain looks likeWhen you tell your dad you relapsed and look at him directly into his faceDeceit on your shoulders, deceivingly heavy weightHaven't seen tears like this on my girl in a whileThe trust that I once built has been betrayedBut I'd rather live telling the truth and be judged for my mistakesThan falsely held up, given props, loved and praisedI guess, I gotta get this on the pageFeeling sick and helplessLost the compass where self isI know what I've gotta do, and I can't help itOne day at a time is what they tell usNow I've gotta find a way to tell themGod help 'em, yeahOne day at a time is what they tell usNow I've gotta find a way to tell them[Hook: Ben Bridwell]We fall, so hard, now we gotta get back what we lost, lostI thought you'd gone, but you were with me all along, along

[Verse 2: Macklemore]And every kid that came up to meAnd said I was the music they listened to when they first got cleanNow look at me, a couple days sober, I'm fighting demonsBack of that meeting on the East Side, shaking, tweakingHope that they don't see it, hope that no one is lookingThat no one recognizes that failure under that hoodieJust posted in the back with my hands crossed, shookenIf they call on me I'm passin', if they talk to me I'm bookingOut that door, but before, I can make itSomebody stops me and says "Are you Macklemore?Maybe this isn't the place or time, I just wanted to say thatIf it wasn't for 'Otherside,' I wouldn't have made it"I just looked down at the ground and say, "Thank you"She tells me she has nine months, and that she's so gratefulTears in her eyes, looking like she's gonna cry, fuckI barely got forty-eight hours, treated like I'm some wise monkI want to tell her I relapsed, but I can'tI just shake her hand and tell her, "Congrats"Get back to my car, and I think I'm tripping, yeahCause God wrote "Otherside," that pen was in my handI'm just a flawed man, man, I fucked upLike so many others, I just never thought I wouldI never thought I would, didn't pick up the bookDoin' it by myself didn't turn out that good[Bridge: Macklemore]If I can be an example of getting soberThen I can be an example of starting overIf I can be an example of getting soberThen I can be an example of starting over[Hook: Ben Bridwell]We fall, so hard, now we gotta get back what we lost, lostI thought you'd gone, but you were with me all along, along
