Lyrics

A lifetime of words and absurd broken promises
I thought I'd be heard but the words got lost and then
I wrote it all down no one gave a second look at it
A lifetime of words and absurd broken promises

I wrote what was real shared my heart
Jot down my soul shared my world
Said what I meant crafted my words
Wrote what was real shared my heart


A lifetime of words and absurd broken promises
I thought I'd be heard but the words got lost and then
I wrote it all down no one gave a second look at it
A lifetime of words and absurd broken promises


It felt like a lie but I tried
But I could not sell my words
Wrote it in verse the good and the worst
It felt like a lied but I tried

A lifetime of words and absurd broken promises
I thought I'd be heard but the words got lost and then
I wrote it all down no one gave a second look at it
A lifetime of words and absurd broken promises


My book reads on
Life's pages turn
You only get one shot
Better not mess it up

A lifetime of words and absurd broken promises
I thought I'd be heard but the words got lost and then
I wrote it all down no one gave a second look at it
A lifetime of words and absurd broken promises
