lyrics

You know they say the people you see on the way up
are the same people you see on your way back down
I just never thought I’d see myself

I didn’t ever wanna give you up
know I made my own mistakes but I don’t claim to be a perfect man
sorry I let you down
I should have known there’d be a day that you would come right back around (x2)

I was approached by a young fan
a young man about the age of 13 or something
this kid was so familiar but at the same time
it’s like I didn’t know him at all
but it seemed like he knew me asking all sorts of questions
then finishing my sentences before I could answer
like why I smoked cigarettes?
told me that he lost his Grandfather to cancer (damn)
well hell I did too
and suddenly I felt connected like he saw right through
then he asked me why I push people away
why I don’t smile and laugh and carry on like I used to?
like I used to? that sounds like news dude
we just met realized I had the view skewed
looked into his eyes started asking who’s who
well God damn, it’s you

I didn’t ever wanna give you up
know I made my own mistakes but I don’t claim to be a perfect man
sorry I let you down
I should have known there’d be a day that you would come right back around (x2)

you’re just a washed up loser
a drunk ugly drug abuser
I could never grow up to be you (x2)

I wish I hadn’t gone to class stoned
eyes red like Tabasco looking like an asshole
I wish I understood how good I really had it
instead of bitching and complaining man I should have had my ass kicked
you I envy life’s still ahead of you
all your poor decisions are very much preventable
they said I could have been the President
now I’m pinching pennies paying rent on a tenement
little man, let me tell it to you straight
life will pass you by you sit around and wait
stand up for yourself, be bold, brave
live everyday like it’s your last and rewrite the page

I didn’t ever wanna give you up
know I made my own mistakes but I don’t claim to be a perfect man
sorry I let you down
I should have known there’d be a day that you would come right back around (x2)
