"I'm Not The Man I Used To Be" as written by Roland Lee Gift and David Steele....
When I'm in trouble or out of step
If my balance has been upset
Oh there's a feeling I can't accept
There's one thing that helps me to forget

Wonder what I'm thinking
Wonder why I'm drinking
But it's plain to see
I'm not the man I used to be

If life were easy and didn't ask,
Didn't tease me or take things back
I'd just start to understand,
What makes me the man I am

Wonder what I'm thinking
Wonder why I'm drinking
But it's plain to see
I'm not the man I used to be

Oh it's plain and it's a shame
I'm not the man I used to be

I've lost dreams that won't come back
Memories fading fast
I should save the ones I have
What's the use, most of them are bad

Wonder what I'm thinking
Wonder why I'm drinking
But it's plain to see
I'm not the man I used to be

Oh it's plain and it's a shame
I can't explain
But I'm not the man I used to be

Oh it's plain and it's a shame
I can't explain
But I'm not the man I used to be

It can probably speak to people in many different ways depending on what they feel is failing them. I understand it fully now. Was recently diagnosed with CTE from to many concussions(31) brain has been dying for 25 years. Its like I wrote it. I always thought he says "I've lost strenth that won't come back
