Only God Knows Why


Lyrics: 

I've been sittin' here - tryin' to find myself
I get behind myself - I need to rewind myself.
Lookin' for the payback - listen for the playback
They say that every man bleeds just like me
 
And I feel like number one - yet I'm last in line
I watch my youngest son - and it helps to pass the time.
I take too many pills - it helps to ease the pain
I made a couple of dollar bills - still I feel the same.
 
Everybody knows my name - they say it way out loud
A lot of folks fuck with me - it's hard to hang out in crowds.
I guess that's the price you pay - to be some big shot like I am
Outstretched hands and one night stands - still I can't find love.
 
And when your walls come tumbling down
I will always be around.
 
Yeah..
 
And when your walls come tumbling down
I will always be around.
 
People don't know 'bout the things I say and do
They don't understand, about the shit that I've been through.
It's been so long since I've been home
I've been gone, I've been gone way too long.
 
Maybe I forgot..  all the things I've missed
Oh somehow I know there's more to life than this.
I said it too many times -  and I still stand firm
You get what you put in - and people get what they deserve.
 
Still I ain't seen mine - No I ain't seen mine!
I've been giving and just ain't been gettin'
I've been walking that there line
So I think I'll keep on walking - with my head held high
I'll keep moving on and only God knows why!
 
Only God.....  Only God...
Only God..  knows why.
Only God....  knows....  why, why, why - only God knows why..
 
Take me to the river - yeah.. Take me to the river..
