Song Description

A song about giving up your dream before you've gotten close to achieving it.

Lyrics

I'm a fraud, I pretend
I ain't chasing glory
Just a lonely wanderer
Trying to tell a simple story
You can feel free
To cry or laugh
At the kid with the carefully
Practiced autograph

So, I'll be the has been who never was
Hold my breath and I'll jump from this boxcar because
It circles the mountain and never starts to climb
I'll leave my pennies on the railroad track
I'll jump from this train, you know, I won't look back
Leave this jumble of words for someone else to rhyme
I say that every time

I'll take a seat right at the bar
That I'm too young to fill
I'll sit and think, sip on the drink
That I never seem to kill
Because the fella that's pouring 'em
Yeah, he knows the deal
I'm always one drink shy
Of how I want to feel

So, I'll be the has been who never was
Hold my breath and I'll jump from this boxcar because
It circles the mountain and never starts to climb
I'll leave my pennies on the railroad track
I'll jump from this train, you know, I won't look back
Leave this jumble of words for someone else to rhyme
I say that every time

And it just gets to me
You get what I mean?
That the best of me is still unseen
That the best of me is still unseen
