Songs of Will T. Massey — “Drunken Cupid”

Will’s 2016 release, The Weathering, chronicles a rough breakup with his love of many years, Valerie, after he abruptly left her without a word of explanation.

His song “Weird Again” always sounded like a combination of explanation and apology to her difficult to deal with due to his ongoing struggles with schizophrenia.

This one sounds like hope being restored to a wounded heart with an eye to the future, a song for moving on.

Did I come on too strong?
Was I little off?
Was I drinking too little?
Was I showing things I’ve lost?
You shine like a diamond
You lost long ago.
Maybe we’ll pawn it someday,
And go to a rock & roll show.

I’m still getting over,
Getting over a love.
A little bit colder
But there’s a good times God above.
And over your shoulder
There’s a long road you’ve been down —
A drunken cupid was hanging around.

Maybe you’ve read more books.
Maybe you’ve got more cash.
But I’ve lived some winding stories, babe,
And I’ve got a little stash.
It’s a mysterious universe
And you can never be sure
But I escaped from the dark side
For cathedral eyes like yours.

I’m still getting over,
Getting over a love.
A little bit colder
But there’s a good times God above.
And over my shoulder
There’s a long road I’ve been down —
A drunken cupid was hanging around.

Playing this bow like a one-stringed guitar,
Toasting to time & smoking a cigar —
An angel came to carry him home,
And it’s just you & I here alone.

Still getting over,
Getting over a love.
A little bit colder
But there’s a good times God above.
And over His shoulder
There’s a long road He’s been down —
A drunken cupid was hanging around.

A drunken cupid was hanging around.
