"Swallow" as written by and Steve Winwood....
Again they’re teasing me
I’m fighting what I cannot see
I’m digging still can’t find the key
And logic just keeps failing me

Take another swallow
Lean back and disappear
Take another swallow
And release the fear
One to fill the hollow
One to make it clear
One to hide the mess
And one to keep me

To keep me running
To keep me running
To keep me running
To keep me running

Oh doctor my dismay
The dragon never goes away
Will your medicine keep him at bay
Will it get me through another day
Buried deep and tied up neat
Laid to rest put down to sleep
All the mischief knocking at my door
I have tried in vain just to ignore

Take another swallow
Lean back and disappear
Take another swallow
And release the fear
One to fill the hollow
One to make it clear
One to hide the mess
And one to keep me

To keep me running
To keep me running
To keep me running
To keep me running

Ain’t got time for looking back
