in my head
i was wastin' away
who got lucky when i couldn't stay
testify my reasons and my worries

i'm runnin' hot but there's nowhere to go
walk that walk hopin' nobody knows

she was rich but i was beautiful (gotta change the world around me)

all the fun we never had
lookin' on back child
all the fun we never had
lookin' on back child
cause i'm in love with the better half of me
looking back on vanity

the wounds i'm feeling have troubled my plan
a longer distance ain't makin' the man
should have tried to learn my lesson well

amplified by the days on my own
recognizin' my blood from my bone

she was rich but i was beautiful (gotta change the world around me)

all the fun we never had
lookin' on back child
all the fun we never had
lookin' on back child
cause i'm in love with the better half of me
looking back on vanity

    General CommentSounds like a class-crossed relationship..like one thought they were better than the other or something.

    General CommentSounds like a relationship destroyed by the shallow world they lived in. A world of vanity and money. Great song!
