You always knew what you wanted
in fact you always flaunt it
how you had your plans laid out back then

But now you come to realize
the truth and the advice
about the best laid plans of mice and man

No I just can't take it
no I don't think I'll make it
there's too much at stake and I can't abide
No I just can't fake it
not for the sake of my pride

Now as you get older
there's more you've got to shoulder
everything comes down to the bottom line

In the eyes the beholder
just like I've always told her
now you've got to ask where it is you sign

No I just can't take it
no I don't think I'll make it
there's too much at stake and I can't abide
No I just can't fake it
know that my heart is aching
it would be a mistake for the sake of my pride
for the sake of my pride
for the sake of my pride

Money always finds wealth
but illness rarely finds health
so crunch your numbers and pop your pills

When your final day comes
the balance and sums
won't count for much as your grave gets filled

No I just can't take it
no I don't think I'll make it
there's too much at stake and I can't abide
No I just can't fake it
know that my heart is aching
it would be a mistake for the sake of my pride
for the sake of my pride
for the sake of my pride
