i've been the bottom of the class
i've seen the weather take its toll
i hid myself behind a mask
spent my whole life searching for homes
some things are never meant to last
sometimes i wish i'd been nicer to you

i felt the sting of social class
kiss of mediocrity
they say that this too shall pass
maybe there's something wrong with me
i've seen the things that a mother will do
just to keep her babies alive

you know i've been there a thousand times
through the lowest lows
and the highest highs
and the best advice that i could find
was i've been there
cuz i've been there

i've been a role model and a friend
i've been discarded in the end
note to all you battered wives
leave him alone, you will survive
there's some things you can get used to
and some things that just burn you alive

i've seen the ghost of hollywood
i've seen the beauty of japan
i saw my self-esteem fading
when you let go of my hand
sometimes i wonder if all this confidence
is worth it in the end

you know i've been there a thousand times
through the lowest lows
and the highest highs
and the best advice that i could find
is i've been there
oh cuz i've been there

oh well yeah i've been 'round this place
it's been such amazing grace
and through all of it there was
love love love
love love

i couldn't look you in the eye
when i told you good bye
cuz i always thought that i'd see you again

you know i've been there a thousand times
through the lowest lows
and the highest highs
and the best advice that i could find
was i've been there

oh you know that i've been there a thousand times
through the lowest lows
and the highest highs
and the best advice that i could find
is i've been there
cuz i've been there
oh you know i've been there
oh whoa whoa whoa
cuz i've been there
cuz i've been there
