lyrics

Verse 1
I rolled out of my 20‘s / Rolling on through m 30’s / Got 40’s ahead of me down the road / Got to get there tonight / Some say, “you got to use up your day light / Before it goes out for good.”

Verse 2
I hope when I am older man / I ain’t dreaming the same story / Of holding this old guitar without no strings. / Cause I’m freezing up in my hotel / Feeling all the love tell the ones I belong to / That I ain’t treating them right

Chorus
All my life
I’ve been afraid
Maybe I’d be better off
Had I paid

Verse 3
This fighting going on in my head / Toss and turning me late in bed / A rest is what I really long for / But she stands up in my way / Her passion card hits my face / And I go down again for the count

Verse 4
But I know I’ve seen this scene before / And the character longs for more / Punishment, abuse and attack of the heart / I’m gonna get back up on the stage again / I’m gonna be the one you want to hear again/ There’s a debt I owe a man in my past

Chorus
All my life
I’ve been afraid
Maybe I’d be better off
Had I paid

Solo Section (guitar)

Verse 5
I am a thief I’ve stolen everything / Your love, your breath, your open wind / It was me who put that hole in your side / But I believe that there is an end for me / In love’s open arms of sanctity / One day I’ll be bound / Heaven

Chorus
All my life
I’ve been afraid
Maybe I’d be better off
Had I paid
