Maybe just a little bit more in my hand,
Maybe just a little bit more than I can stand.
Maybe just a little bit is all that I need,
Maybe just a little bit would cure this disease.

Sometimes you got to let it go
forget the pages that you wrote
Damn it feels funny that I don't feel high
I fight the Devil with a switchblade knife
yea, but he's winning so far

how did I fall so far so fast
I hit the bottom with a big loud crash
and then, I got a switchblade life to mend

could have been the liquor that was still on my breath
could have been the rest of it that scared me half to death
could have been the prayers that were finally answered
could have been the way it came as calm as cancer

Quality recording, verse drives well into the chorus, chorus is catchy and definitely satisfies when it hits. Reminds me a little bit of maybe some Creed and Default at their pop best. Lyrics work well for the material. Solid pop rock track.

It's very catchy and sounds great. I don't know if you're a Tim McGraw fan, but you sound similar to Tim McGraw which is a compliment.

Well done, Total fits as a movie track, and radio worthy.
