All you young girls come in every Friday night
And you smile at me as if you know me to be kind
When to see your pain could be all that I crave
I could've been a killer in my day

You think that when a man comes of age
That he magically sets aside his bitterness and rage?
Well, to tell you the truth wouldn't be such a shame
I could've been a killer in my day

Should I haul you up by the collar of your coat
So close you can smell every last gin on my breath
And spit words of fury just to illustrate my rage?
I could've been a killer in my day

If I sat down with an evil man I’m sure I would find
The same cruel thoughts, they have all crossed my mind
And it's only my decisions let these impulses lay
I could've been a killer in my day

I took a desperate stranger in my house for a stay
And he stole my lady before he stole away
I'd've given anything to have made that man pay
I could've been a killer in my day

Well I’ve come this far down my own road
Every step is one that I’ve taken alone
And as you enter life that's how you leave - on your own
So it matters not what you say
I could've been a killer in my day
(Come this far, I will get there, come this far on my own)
