If you're to dwell upon a weary past
You just may never last
Ease back and relax
Or you'll relapse

For you dodged the draft
Don't reel back
To when you almost crashed

Disturbing memories
Will creep inside the mind
And you can't undo 'em
Embarrassing momentarily
But do pull through 'em

They still have the same old laugh on you
When they gossip on 'em too
Look at what they're up to now
What they're still into

But you dodged the draft
Don't reel back
To when you almost crashed

My coat over a mud puddle
On every step she'd take
Was just the way I treated her
With every move I'd make

I tied her down
Enough's enough
We broke up inevitably
I felt too sorry for myself
And didn't think of no one else but me

(My friends all have come away
I don't know what to say)

Here we are alive today
The only saving grace in our dismay
Unguided faith's a lonely way
Yet makes this place worth saving

And you dodged the draft
Keep up your guard
Be wary of a sneak attack
You almost cracked

And hey
I dodged the draft
Thank my guardian angel I'm back
I almost cracked ...
