The Reason Why


I bet my money on my only dream
But it broke my self esteem
And I don't know why

Ain't no control over the loneliness
Still I put my soul in it
And I don't know why
Everything I said I'd never do
Well I did it anyway
But I don't know why
Sickened by what I turned into
So I threw it all away
I'm a tell you why

In my life, in my life
I've been hurt, and burned burned inside
But in time yes over time
That has turned into the thing that gets me by
That's the reason why

I did some crime and took my punishment
I had my fun with it
I don't know why
I wasted time being something I wasn't
It just wasn't me
And I don't know why
Took so long to find myself again
And I threw my wealth away
But I don't know why
Lived my life and though I've made mistakes
I'd do it all again
And I'll tell you why…

In my life, in my life
I've been hurt, and burned burned inside
But in time yes over time
That has turned into the thing that gets me by
That's the reason why

Lines in the road are the lines that I write with
travelled in time by the minds of the righteous
Young man socialist, old man republican
Youth wanna grow and the old be young again
On the other end always seem brighter than
Time will trick you, quicker than a slight of hand
Clock's a round guillotine chopping time
Til you made your ten cents then it stops on a dime
The inner eye minimized over time
Symbolized by the light identified by the blind
No regrets I'm a keep mine
Mistakes made the man that I am that's the reason why

In my life, in my life
I've been hurt, and burned burned inside
But in time yes over time
That has turned into the thing that gets me by
That's the reason why
