Lyrics

All My Dreams
Words and Music by: Craig Bowers

Never wanted nothing, never asked for much
I was glad whatever came my way but I never had that 'touch'
Lately I've been looking, disbelieving what I see
Everybody's fat and happy, everyone but me...
What's goin' on here?

Folks are calling me unlucky as if there's such a thing as luck
It's not what my mama called me
It's just a name that sorta stuck
And love didn't wanna know me, so I don't know how that feels
I been 'round the block so many times
I feel like a wore-out set of wheels

I tried to grab the brass ring but it slipped right through my hands
I just keep blowin' smoke rings 'round these castles in the sand
I guess I'm good for nothing, at least that's the way that it seems
I think someone else is having all my dreams

No one ever answers but I keep knockin' on that door
I tried to shake this feeling off but I can't take it no more
I guess I might never extricate myself from this complicated mess
Think I must've got a visit from the blackbird of unhappiness

I tried to grab the brass ring but it slipped right through my hands
I just keep blowin' smoke rings 'round these castles in the sand
I guess I'm good for nothing, at least that's the way that it seems
I think someone else must be having all my dreams

Now you know that I'm not jealous
No I'm not the jealous kind
But sometimes I feel those icy fingers
running through my mind

Never wanted nothing, never asked for much
I was glad whatever came my way but I never had that 'touch'
Lately I've been looking, disbelieving what I see
Everybody's fat and happy, everyone but me

(I) Tried to be a winner but I never got that break
I guess I'm just a sinner and I don't have what it takes
So I'll be the King of Nothing at least that's the way that it seems
I think someone else must be having all my dreams
