Lyrics

Tom Morgan

My name is Tom Morgan and I?m writing this song
About the great breaking through of my life
I had money to burn, my name in the Times
The ultimate trophy wife

Well her name it was Hannah and oneday she said
Tommy you?re not the man that I?ve loved
If you find him again won?t you ask him for me
What the hell he thinks he?s become
Well she held up a mirror, and the man that I saw
Was a man I knew couldn?t be me
He look tired and wasted with eyes full of pain
Not the hero I thought I should be

I climbed to the top of that pyramid
On the back of the one dollar bill
But it all looked the same, nothing could change
This hunger that nothing could fill

I was drugging and drinking my way to the grave
Thinking heaven was just round the bend
But when Hannah left me I spun out of control
And not even the coke was my friend

And I knew that the fear locked inside me
That I?d been running from all along
Was the fear that this world I?d been born to
Was a place where I didn?t belong
Oh I?d spent my whole life seeking treasures
I?d lived in the shelter of schemes
I stood now at the edge of a darkness
Where I?d fall forever it seemed

Oh I looked through the eyes of that pyramid
On the back of that one dollar bill
But nothing had changed I still felt all the pain
Of a hunger that nothing could fill

When the money was gone, I slipped into the cracks
Of the city where I once was a king
And one night in the rain with no help for my pain
I finally saw how I?d lost everything

I?d put up my soul as collateral
For a loan it was time to repay
I remembered the words of my father
Who said ?Son, surely there?ll come a day
When all that you?ve done won?t mean nothing
And you?ll see where your true power lies
And you?ll come to believe there is something
Much greater than you, or I.?

Against a wall in that dark and wet alleyway
I let go of my future and past
And though 20 years dead, my dad?s voice in my head
Said ?It looks like you?ve heard me at last.?
