i’m alright i’m ok
i’m just trying to make it through another day
when will you see that i’m
not the man i used to be?
leave it all in the past
good decisions never seem to last
they get lost in the night
watch the world close their eyes
why can’t you see my point of view?
is it something you’re not used to?
got a knife in my back
cause i always seem to get off track
can’t pull it out
no this is my ball and chain
you don’t want what you’ve got
so you try to be something that you’re not
but it never works cause you’ll always be the same
why don’t the pieces ever seem to fit?
look at your life and wonder where it went
i forgot that we were only temporary
next thing i knew the tables turned
the girl was gone, a lesson learned.
new years eve winter breeze
i felt warmer when you noticed me
yeah you look so good and i wanna reel you in
keep you all to myself
don’t feel like sharing you with anybody else
you deserve my love for the rest of your life
my intuition’s telling me that we would eventually break apart
cause there’s something ‘bout your charm i know
that led to many broken hearts
you came back for some more
b-bang-bang knockin’ on my door
but it’s not enough cause i can’t trust anyone
is it real or pretend?
cause when i look at you you look at him
it’s a crying shame when you play me for a fool
sooner or later you’re bound to look back
and you’re gonna wonder why you went
and ran me right off the tracks
cause i forgot that we were only temporary
next thing i knew the tables turned
the girl was gone a lesson learned
