I Think

Album: Year of the Wolf (2011)
  • When I was a kid and I had no money
    That stuff didn't bother me because I had potential
    There was always a tomorrow
    Always something better than today
    Now I'm not a kid and you know what's funny?
    I don't feel so grown-up
    I only feel afraid these days
    And now here comes that tomorrow and I only
    Want to run away

    So don't pick on me
    Don't give me your shit, don't give me your shit
    We've all got problems
    We're living with it, we're living it
    Just keep on going
    And that is the trick, that is the trick
    And I think I think I think I think
    I think I think too much

    When I was a kid well my dad made money
    Damn, we hardly saw him
    My brother'd say the same thing too
    Oh Daddy, Daddy, Daddy where were you?
    Where were you when we needed you?
    But you play the hand you get and you worry some
    You make the best of a situation
    I'd probably do the same as you
    I would too, I would too
    You got to hang onto each other
    Hold onto what we got and not let go
    No, no, no!

    Don't pick on me
    Don't give me your shit, don't give me your shit
    We've all got problems
    We're living with it, we're living it
    Just keep on going
    And that is the trick, that is the trick
    And I think I think I think I think
    I think I I I...

    I'm doing my best here
    C'mon and give me a break, give me a break
    It's all I can do now
    It's all I can take, it's all I can take
    I get so downhearted, I do
    I get so downhearted, oh I do, I do

    So don't pick on me
    Don't give me your shit, don't give me your shit
    We've all got problems
    We're living with it, we're living it
    Just keep on going
    And that is the trick, that is the trick
    And I think I think I think I think
    Too much, I know I do
    I think I think I think I think
    I think I'm just like you
    I, I, I do

    When I was a kid and I had no money
    That stuff didn't bother me, oh no Writer/s: NERINA NATASHA GEORGINA PALLOT
