Lyrics

I met a soul in a bar
Said to me son tell me now who you are
He spoke his words like the dark
Crept up so silent the sun peels the moon apart
Defining diamonds from the rocks.

Said you got nothing to fear
I'll help you on you travels all you have to do is steer
Thought to myself for a while oh dear he said
I could not gain in stealing from here.

Sometimes I feel like this couldn't get any better
Like this is all a joke i'll be left out in the weather.

I never thought these days would come
I used to see myself walking down the road holding out my thumb.
A roof over my head & a mum
That will still love me when I stuff up
& if I ever got shot up
I got friends that'll jump in front of the gun
I got friends that'll jump in from of the gun.

I learned a lot in my time
I can tell a bad person from the way they look in my eyes.
I do my thinking in rhymes.
I used to spend my days writing fake names on the jungle gym
Watching the people go by.

My best friend she don't know my name
She always asks me what I'm doing if there's any way she can change.
I tell her just stay the same.
'Cause if i don't really need you I won't ever try to please you
That way I won't have to take the blame.

Sometimes I feel like this couldn't get any better
Like this is all a joke i'll be left out in the weather.

I never thought these days would come
I used to see myself walking down the road holding out my thumb.
A roof over my head & a mum
That will still love me when I stuff up
& if I ever got shot up
I got friends that'll jump in front of the gun
I got friends that'll jump in from of the gun.

Started at the end of the road
I'm on my way back now I'm never sure which way to go.
Night time's beginning to fall
I swear I did not plan to be here at all.

If I had ever never chosen to stay
Man I heard the people telling me that's just the price you pay.
I said I feel I've gotta go.
& they say there's always some place you can call home
They say there's always some place you can call home.

Sometimes I feel like this couldn't get any better
Like this is all a joke i'll be left out in the weather.

I never thought these days would come
I used to see myself walking down the road holding out my thumb.
A roof over my head & a mum
That will still love me when I stuff up
& if I ever got shot up
I got friends that'll jump in front of the gun
I got friends that'll jump in from of the gun.
