Everybody's asking
When you gonna pick up your life
Everybody's saying
Isn't it about time you took yourself a wife
You're such a lucky kid
Such a lucky kid
You had everything you wanted to take
Sun and moon and the stars that shine for you
Now you're spitting on you lucky breaks, well

That's the way it's been
That's the way it's going
That's the way it's been
That's the way it's going

Everybody's singing
Singing my praises so high
They don't know what they're saying
What they're saying
They think my rivers can never run dry
It's not the way I planned it
Like you can't grow flowers from every plant
Though I'd love to set this world on fire
Well, I would if I could but I can't

(chorus)

Great expectations from me an my mouth
Well, you sure know by now
.. to decide
Looking through you like a dog looks to a man
But in a bad sense sometimes
Will they understand
Will they understand

Everybody's thinking
Everybody's thinking the same
Why can't I move up closer
Little closer up to my aim
Same thing stopping me
Is the same thing stopping everybody else
You friend were fools
With good intentions
About timing and a lack of good health

Say you're seventeen
Say you're seventeen
And you've got no sense
Well, if you ask me
That's best way that you could be
Like you're innocent
But yet you're the best

Gone, gone, gone
Let's go

Well, you had the game
But then you wanted more
And now you have more pain
Than what you're asking for
You've been thinking too fast
And you've been moving too slow
And that's the way
Your chances go
