Thomas Swatek


If I could go back in time

Back through the events in my life

I’d take back my life

            Wife by wife


I wish I was young again

But I know

I’d make the same mistakes

and have nothing to show

Then again I’d feel

the pain of my life

I’d feel that same pain

            Wife after wife


Take my advice and

run while you can

Don’t let yourself jump

from the fire to the pan

The sentence of love

brings pain to your life           

and the punishment is given

            Wife after wife.
