lyrics

I’ve been up and down
Over the same old ground
I’ve run with a callous crowd

It tears the heart of me
And I can’t help it
If that’s the way you seem to be

We come and go
First and last
And it can hit ya hard
When unexpected objects crash

Impaled on shards of grief
And I can’t help it
If that’s the way you seem to be

It gets cold and dark
This down and out
Where milky light shine dims
And gray dawns the day and night

Just like you’re semi-sleeping
It’s much too hard on me
And I can’t help it
If that’s the way you seem to be

And you’re not the only one …

Do you double cross
To win or lose
What makes us lose our way
The brain blanks and blows a fuse

Just like you’re semi-sleeping
I didn’t start this thing
But I can’t help it
If that’s the way you used to be

And you’re not the only one …
