lyrics

Been beat down, gone underground
And my life it is not my own
I ran away into the fray
Still my life it is not my own

You can get on your knees and pray
You can wait until the judgment day
You may find yourself in need of attention
And the one thing you hold true
Is that it all comes down to you
But still my life it is not my own

Been born again, and I’ve lost a friend
And I can't find my way home
Got a wife somewhere and children there
Still my life it is not my own

Oh mercy mercy me, I pray onto the stars and sea
That someday soon I may walk beside them
But until that blessed day, all that I can do is pray
Because my life it is not my own

You can get lost inside this city
Where it always looks like rain
There ain’t nothing you can do
There ain’t nothing you can say
Because you just can’t stop the rain

Ain’t seen the sky since ‘45
And my life it is not my own
Heard Jesus saves, and I’ve seen early graves
And stil my life it is not my own

You may find yourself confused and then quietly amused
You may find yourself with nothing left to trust n
With this tremor in my brain, and this hurt inside my veins
Because my life it is not my own
