Story Behind the Song

Someone looks back on their life

Lyrics

In A Nutshell

I've tried and I've tried
To do more than get by
But so far that state escapes me
To fall at the first
And sometimes much worse
Seems to be my destiny
To have and to hold
Seems to be my destiny


To have and to hold
Is the way I've been told
To achieve much more pleasure than pain
But from my point of view
That hasn't held true
And I've lost much more than I've gained


Chorus


In a nutshell that's me
And you all may agree
That my actions I might justify
And even if you can't
Concur with my stance
In a nutshell neither might I

Verse

Unless things change soon
I'll just howl at the moon
When the pressure's getting to me
And once I've let off steam
In my lupine dream
I'll return to normality




To have and to hold
Is the way I've been told
To win much more than I've lost
But I regularly find
My success has declined
At a not unsubstantial cost


Chorus


In a nutshell that's me
And you all may agree
That my actions I might justify
And even if you can't
Concur with my stance
In a nutshell neither might I

Verse

And so in the end
If I shame or offend
My apology comes from the heart
And if I caused hurt
Or perish the thought worse
I'll pack up and go back to the start


To have and to hold
Is the way I've been told
To ensure that I come out ahead
But I've found out at best that
More often means less
And I accept second best instead



Chorus


In a nutshell that's me
And you all may agree
That my actions I might justify
And even if you can't
Concur with my stance
In a nutshell neither might I
