"Not as You Were" as written by Burleigh Drummond, Joseph Puerta and David Robert Pack....
When you've had enough of trouble
Had it up to here
Your mind can't help but wandering
To some place gonna get you clear
You've had enough of misery
You've gotta find you somethin' new
And I'd be gone in a wink
If I thought I could think
Of some place gonna get me through
Tryin' to find some breathin' room
A little peace from your case of blues
It's hard to cut the ties that hold you
Get the lead out of your shoes
You've had enough of misery
You've gotta find you some new clue
And I'd be gone in a wink
If I thought I could think
Of some place gonna get me through
Not as you were
You really don't need that
You tried it out
It just didn't work
Not as you were
Really don't need that
Not as you were, were...
Oh, if I had some relief
Get me out of the rain and the cold
Then, I'd be down on my knees
Giving thanks for the peace
All right
When you've had enough of trouble
Had it up to here
Your mind can't help but wandering
To some place gonna get you clear
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Not as you were
You really don't need that
You tried it out
It just didn't work
Not as you were
Really don't need that
Not as you were, were...
Not as you were
Were...
