What Would I Do Without My Music

Lyrics: Bruce Belland ASCAP

Music:  Harry Middlebrooks BMI

Sometimes I stumble home at night discouraged

Dragging my battered dreams behind

Wonderin’ if the battle’s worth the fighting

And why so many people’s eyes are blind

 

But as I disappear into my music

And a song grows deep inside my soul

I know if I was born to use it

 (optional lyric: I know if God wants me to use it)

The striving’s more important than the goal

 

And I think:

What would I do without my music?

What would I do without my song?

What would I do without my music?

To make it right when everything seems wrong

 

And as I lose my worries in my music

Dreams start re-building strong and high

And I know though I may not be winning

I’m a long, long way from losing if I try

 

And I think:

What would I do without my music?

What would I do without my song?

What would I do without my music?

To lift me up when all my dreams are gone

To give me hope so I can carry on
