Kris Kristofferson

For the Sake of the Song


Let’s just overlook the bottle that I busted

When I threw it at the mirror on the wall

I just can’t stand to look at nothing else this wasted

Or anything that’s fool enough to fall


Let’s just make believe that nothing really happened

And laugh about the crazy time we had

The take away the painful from the pleasure

And put whatever’s left down on the tab



         They won’t know our names for the changes

         They won’t miss a thing when we’re gone

         We just drank up some dreams and some memories

         And it’s all for the sake of the song


Just be glad it’s just a bottle that got busted

And not somebody’s heart that’s gonna bleed

Our loving sure was something while it lasted

And maybe that was good enough for me


All good fortune gone is better off forgotten

A man don’t miss a chance he can’t recall

So I may forget a million more tomorrows

But I won’t remember this one most of all


**Repeat Chorus


And it’s all for the sake of the song
