Song Description

Short description: Sad piano rock ballad with male vocal. The song is about a guy whose mistakes have ruined him and now it's over, he's failed, he's all washed up. The lyric is universal for film-TV.

Lyrics

VERSE
I played loose and wild with trouble and greed
They were fun and pretty but never really loved me
I thought glamour was success, guess I got that wrong
Everyone loved my money but now it's all gone
Right when I stopped buying rounds
Glamour kicked me down

CHORUS
Face in the dirt, all washed up
Left for dead, so out of luck
Too down to rise, too beat to fight
The it's-all-over's already begun
Turn the light at the end of my tunnel off, I'm done, I'm done

VERSE
I built my mansion with paper and lies
The bricks were too heavy so I used some compromise
I thought quicker was better, took some big shortcuts
What started out so shiny soon rotted to rust
Buried in all the decay
By my bad mistakes

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I can't start again, it's too, too late
I did my wrong, gotta live with my fate

CHORUS

TAG
I'm done, I'm done, all done
