You haven't seen me 'round
this part of town.
Well I've been missing, yes it's true.

You ask me why the long face.
Well put yourself in my place,
and tell me now, what would you do?

If everything you wanted and everything you knew
gathered up her things and walked right out on you
Well would you be here today nursing the bottle instead of me?
You see...

You'll never know how much I stand to lose,
until you walk a mile in my shoes.
And you'll never know the sorry state I'm in,
until you spend a day in my skin.

To dodge the painful truth
I reach for eighty proof
and I try to find some answers here.

I don't mean to glorify this poison.
I hardly feel it was a very good year.

Since all my stubborn pride
and my stubborn ways
pushed her to the line each and every day,
well, with all that aside, this is now what comforts me.
You see...

You'll never know how much I stand to lose,
until you walk a mile in my shoes.
And you'll never know the sorry state I'm in,
until you spend a day in my skin.

If anything was learned
it's everything was lost
and the price, in turn, is never worth the cost.
When I come home at night to find the pictures of her and me.
You see...

You'll never know how much I stand to lose,
until you walk a mile in my shoes.
And you'll never know the sorry state I'm in,
until you spend a day in my skin.
