lyrics

I’m learning slowly day by day
My dreams have died and gone away
When I was younger,
I thought I could change the world,
Pick a cause to champion,
And ride behind my words

But somewhere I lost sight
Of where I’m supposed to go
Different problems come along,
And everybody grows
Still, I keep on searching for
What they all seem to know

I’ve thought about how I can change,
Pick up my bags and walk away
And if I weren’t tied down,
I might try leaving everyone,
Try to meet new faces
Who don’t know the things I’ve done

They say you’re always
In the dark before the dawn
And that my chance will come to me
If I can just hold on
Meanwhile, I keep to myself
And act like nothing’s wrong

And I try, but I don’t get far
Picking up the pieces after they’ve been torn apart
For all I’ve been through, I feel pretty much the same
But I’ll never take another trip and leave my world again

There is a fountain in my mind
I still pass by time to time
But now I try to live
Like I’m a different man,
Say my prayers and dance all night
And laugh as best I can

But I’ve lost hope
With everything I’ve seen
Filth and pain,
They tell me how to think
But please don’t cut the water off-
I still ain’t had a drink

And I try, but I don’t get far
Picking up the pieces after they’ve been torn apart
For all I’ve been through, I feel pretty much the same
But I’ll never take another trip
Or kiss a stranger on the lips
‘Cause later they join you by the hip
I shoulda left this town, it makes me sick
And every night, I wanna quit
And leave my world again
Leave my world again
Leave my world again
Leave my world again
