but now you're all grown up and those days are done
and you don't love anyone, you don't have any fun
you forgot how to fly when you learned how to run
and the strain of living life under the gun
is driving you crazy. the face of a lady
is burned in your brain and now here you are saying to me
but the love of you life didn't fit in your plans
when you got a good job and you thought it was your shot
to become a rich man you just get one chance
you forgot about her, she forgot about you
and you spent your life being used like a tool
what a fool, what a stupid fool i've been, you say
cuz this life without you is dead and black
and lovin' is what i got to give
i'm gonna quit my job i'm gonna start to live
i gotta stop being afraid
but your daddy said "NO! you gotta get paid
and if you follow this path, kid, i'm afraid
can you feel my fear? you should be afraid!"
you just wanna be safe, who needs to be free?
so you sold your soul, but low and behold!
you still got no security
