Creepin’ slowly but surely then reelin’ me in 
Chorus
I've been down before
But baby, I didn’t know what the blues were

Every night I’m alone now
I surely know what I’m missin’
But it made me realize
How you got a chain around my neck
I shoulda what was comin’
You let me run free now your reelin’ me in,
Chorus
