When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

- "I Still Can't Say Goodbye," Performer: Chet Atkins

Manic depression is touchin' my soul
I know what I want, but I just don't know
How to go about gettin' it
Feelin', sweet feelin',
Drops from my fingers, fingers
Manic depression is capturing my soul ... yeah

Woman so weary, the sweet cause in vain
You make love, you break love
It's all the same
When it's, when it's over
Music, sweet music
I wish I could caress, caress, caress
Manic depression is a frustrating mess ... wow

Well, I think I'll go turn myself off,
And go on down
All the way down
Really ain't no use in me hangin' around
In your kinda scene

Music, sweet music
I wish I could caress, and kiss, kiss
Manic depression is a frustrating mess ... wow ... yeah ... ow

Music, sweet music

Music, sweet music
