lyrics

Can’t Be Won



Wondering why this town calls my name at night.

Another high, trying not to spill my drink on my pressed tie.

I’m a fun loving guy, ‘til I put back a few then I’m ready to fight.

I’m all right, but ask me again and I will tell you a lie.



Going home to my family, knowing I’ll find them hiding away from me.



Why am I so weak?

I’ve tried to get free so many times, but I’m caught by the pleasures of life

‘til all my excuses deplete and I find myself wandering the street for comfort.









Shifting moods, it seems that we handled our joy way too soon.

I lick my wounds when I find there’s no baby inside of her womb.

What to do, I feel like I’m telling her lies to get through

Where were you? I know that you’re no longer held to a tomb



Knowing now I need you here with me,

Need my sight to clear up, ‘cause I can’t see



Why am I so weak?

I’ve tried to get free so many times I’m caught by the pressures of life

‘til all my excuses deplete and I find myself wandering the streets for comfort.



Am I doomed to walk alone or are You with me?

Is there life left in this man and who should I be?

Cause I am tired of falling down, I trip on my feet

Is there time left in your plan and can you save me?
