  • I've been sittin' here trying to find myself
    I get behind myself I need to rewind myself
    Looking for the payback listening for the playback
    They say that every man bleeds just like me

    And I feel like number one yet I'm last in line
    I watch my younger son and it helps to pass the time
    I take too many pills that helps to ease the pain
    I made a couple of dollare bills still I feel the same

    Everybody knows my name they say it way out loud
    A lot of folks fuck with me it's hard to hang out in a croud
    I guess that's the price you pay to be some big shot like I am
    Out strecthed hands and one night stands

    Still I can't find love
    And when the walls are tumbling down
    I will always be around

    And when the walls are tumbling down I will always be around
    People don't know about the things I say and do
    They don't understand about the shit I've been through
    It's been so long since I've been home

    I've been gone, I've been gone way too long
    Maybe I've forgotten all the things I miss
    Oh, somehow I know there is more to life than this
    I've said it too many times and I still stand firm

    You get what you put in and people get what the deserve
    Still I ain't seen mine, no I ain't seen mine
    I've been given but just ain't gettin' I've been walkin' that thin line
    So I think I'll keep a walking with my head held high

    I'll keep moving on and only God knows why
    Only God, only God, only God knows why
    Only God knows why, why, why, why
    Only God knows why

    Take it to the river, hey
    Take me to the river, hey Writer/s: JOHN A. TRAVIS, MATTHEW SHAFER, R.J. RITCHIE
