We train all our lives
I stay in practice
And keep my focus
But oh, I know…

That the way I roll
The way I show myself on the outside
It may seem cold
But I have only the best of intentions
As I make them known
You try and show yourself to a trained eye
As in control
And always strong and self-independent

But you cannot do this on your own
(You’ve tried before and you’re still alone)
And I don’t have the strength that I had before
(Cause I’ve walked this road and I know where it goes)
You’re too afraid to say it
And to ashamed to admit that
She’s leading you on your way back home
And taking you nowhere

You’re here for my advice
But when I give it,
You refuse to take it
And oh, I know…

I may be wrong
But at least I showed myself on the outside
As being strong
By holding on to my convictions

And so I pace myself
And keep in mind that I have no way out if I
Leave you stranded on your own

You cannot do this on your own
(You’ve tried before and you’re still alone)
And I don’t have the strength that I had before
(Cause I’ve walked this road and I know where it goes)
You’re too afraid to say it
And to ashamed to admit that
She’s leading you on your way back home
And taking you nowhere

So I...
Left you passed out on the floor
And I…
Know it’s not my fault, but I
Know you won’t be alone for long
So I...
Wait, wait just a minute
Then make, make my commitment
For better or worse, I’m here for good

You cannot do this on your own
(You’ve tried before and you’re still alone)
And I don’t have the strength that I had before
(Cause I’ve walked this road and I know where it goes)
You’re too afraid to say it
And to ashamed to admit that
She’s leading you on your way back home
(Cause I’ve walked this road and I know where it goes)
Down the path that we both know
Is taking you nowhere
