my lyricsbox
The bar closes early on the sabbath day
So me and my kid we hit the park to play
Then it starts to rain so we walked home again
He asked why he was born
I don't know what to say
I don't feel guilty and I don't feel sad
This mother-fucking life is the best he's had
I said I've been there sonny and it ain't that bad
I took my hits from the shits back when I was a lad

So long ago and even though I tried
I couldn't make him see
The light that he had cast in front of me
And even though I cried
I couldn't make him be
The very thing I needed

His mother would make a scene when I come home late
She looks like she's dying and she's twenty-eight
I never loved that whore
I never will no more
Except for a month back in '84
The jammin' was playing and my heart stood still
Gazing at her shadow on the windowsill

So long ago and even though I tried
I couldn't make her see
I wasn't quite the man she thought I'd be
And even though I cried
I couldn't make her be
The very thing I needed

And eve though I tried
I couldn't make her see
I wasn't quite the man she thought I'd be
And even though I cried
I couldn't make her be
The very thing I needed

Could she be the very thing I needed?
Could she be the very thing?
Push yourself away from your one best friend
Who's gonna love you when you reach the end?
Who will?
Who will?
This song is from the album "Nightsongs".
