this is my story and here's how it goes. don't tell nobody cause nobody knows. the gov't says what i did was wrong, then how come it felt so right. time and time it happened again years went by and she lost all her friends. nowhere to turn and nowhere to run she thought her life was done. i looked in her eyes and all i could see was fuckin pain and misery she's so unhappy. 25, 25 to life. yea 25, 25 to life. I coulda copped but instead i got me a new wife. 25 to life is what i could get, but the look in her eyes i could never forget. i knocked down the door and pulled out my gun. i said grab your things and get your son. the pain in your life will soon be over. the pain in your life will soon be done. i seen a smile come to her face when she heard the sound of the gun. i looked into her eyes and all i could see was fuckin pain and misery she's so unhappy. 25, 25 to life. yea 25, 25 to life. 25, 25 to life. i coulda copped but instead i got me a new wife so we packed up our things and headed out west. for this crime i commited i'll never confess. for once in her life she's happy she even said yes when i said marry me. that was my story and that's how it goes. i commited murder and nobody knows. 25, 25 to life. yea 25, 25 to life. 25, 25 to life. i coulda copped but instead i got me a new wife.

    General Commentthis is one hell of a song.. it takes balls to put that in a song, whether he did it or not.. the guy lives a rough life, does something wrong, tries to move on.. yeah, he tries.. he's got a concious and realizes that what he did was wrong and tries to go somwhere with his life.. once again, this guy knows how to live his life.. let me tell you.. he knows that each day could be the last and tries to fix things up before he has nothing left.
