Success Story
WORDS & MUSIC BY BEN WOOD
(copyright 2003)

When I started out
I had a picture of you
Slowly it burned out
The colours cracked and slid beyond my view
And I know I?ve got to change myself
For all the good it ever seems to do

Could?ve been anything I wanted
Could?ve been anything
But I let you down

Could?ve been a ball player
Now I?m just learning to throw
Picking up the pieces of the heather
Kicking up the burial snow
Because I let you down

Now I find I?m in a shallow field
Of sudden doubt
And grinding wheels
And I know I?m never going to feel
Like I did when my hope was real

Could?ve been anything I wanted
Could?ve been anything
But I let you down

Could?ve been a ball player
Now I?m just learning to throw
Picking up the pieces of the heather
Kicking up the burial snow
Because I let you down
Could?ve been anything I wanted
Could?ve been anything
Could?ve been something to believe in
Could?ve been anything
But I let you down

Summer comes, drinks away the water
There is nothing left to hold me back
Sticks and stones don?t break the bricks and mortar
They just bruise and turn my fever black

Could?ve been anything I wanted
Could?ve been anything
But I let you down

Could?ve been a ball player
Now I?m just learning to throw
Picking up the pieces of the heather
Kicking up the burial snow
Because I let you down
Could?ve been anything I wanted
Could?ve been anything
Could?ve been something to believe in
Could?ve been anything
But I let you down
