downtime lyrics – jo dee messina

i haven’t been myself these days
according to friends i tend to lose a part of me
when my heart is on the mend
i’ll be alright, it’s safe to say
’cause just like your love, this is only a phase

well, i’ve been down this road a time or two it’s nothin’ new
well, i’ll get on my feet and over you
i tell myself that everything will be just fine
oh, i’m just goin’ through a little downtime

some might think i’ve gotten caught up
in heartache’s aftermath
but your memory’s taken second
to a good book and nice long bath
i must admit it threw me at first
but i’m convinced, i’m over the worst

oh, i’ve been down this road a time or two it’s nothin’ new
oh, i’ll get on my feet and over you
i tell myself that everything will be just fine
oh, i’m just goin’ through a little downtime

well, time is meant to play the part
in taking care of broken hearts

oh, i’ve been down this road a time or two it’s nothin’ new
oh, i’ll get on my feet and over you
oh, i tell myself that everything will be just fine
oh, i’m just goin’ through a little
oh, i’m just goin’ through a little
oh, i’m just goin’ through a little downtime
