  • When I was young I was the nicest guy I knew
    I thought I was the chosen one
    But time went by and I found out a thing or two
    My shine wore off as time wore on
    I thought that I was living out the perfect life
    But in the lonely hours when the truth begins to bite
    I thought about the times when I turned my back & stalled
    I ain't no nice guy after all

    When I was young I was the only game in town
    I thought I had it down for sure,
    But time went by and I was lost in what I found
    The reasons blurred, the way unsure
    I thought that I was living life the only way
    But as I saw that life was more than day to day
    I turned around, I read the writing on the wall

    I ain't no nice guy after all
    I ain't no nice guy after all

    In all the years you spend between your birth and death
    You find there's lots of times you should have saved your breath
    It comes as quite a shock when that trip leads to fall Writer/s: IAN FRASER KILMISTER
