Blood, Sweat & Tears

I’ve made a few mistakes
I’m not proud
I’ve had a lot of time
to think about
Tying up those loose ends
and coming on home

I battled for a while
but then I gave up
My voice was compensating
and it finally had enough
So I’m tying up those loose ends
and coming on home

I’d go to sleep and wait
for everything to fall in place
The blood, sweat and tears
had wiped the smile of my face
and the worst thing that I ever did
was quitting music so young

I made up for the lack
of writing songs
by drinking too much
until my thoughts were numb
and now I’m picking up the pen
and making sure this is for fun

I put all of my luck
into a single soul
when I should have had the guts
and fucking done it all
but now I’m picking up the pen
and making sure this is for fun

I’d go to sleep and wait
for everything to fall in place
The blood, sweat and tears
had wiped the smile of my face

and the worst thing that I ever did
was quitting music
So young at heart
but the plans were doomed
from the start
Three whole years
was enough to know
that I’m the boy who can’t

And the worst thing that I ever did
was quitting music so young
