Forest For The Trees (Harve Bishop) video

All my friends were looking down their noses,
For the things that I've done
and the way I used to be;
Some people even said that I'd gone crazy,
And I didn't even have respect for me.

They say that booze and pills were gettin' to me,
That life itself was slippin' out of reach;
I was movin' too fast and I just couldn't last,
And I couldn't see the forest for the trees.

I couldn't see the forest for the trees,
I was like a lost ship far out on the sea;
I couldn't sing my songs,
everything I did was wrong,
And I couldn't see the forest for the trees.

Now the dark clouds rolled away, the sun is shinin',
Things are getting brighter every day;
And for every dark night there's a silver lining,
And my social friends can see the change in me.

I couldn't see the forest for the trees,
I was like a lost ship far out on the sea;
I couldn't sing my songs,
everything I did was wrong,
And I couldn't see the forest for the trees.
No, I couldn't see the forest for the trees.
