and i guess to some this might look like a problem
i suppose somewhere i've changed along the way
see, there used to be a part of me
that generated tears
so careless by the things i've seen
that governs what you feel

and you still can't give it up
in the time it takes rebuild the man you are, whoa
each and every time i try to climb i see to fall
i suppose it's just a lie
and the one you love's not really yours at all, whoa
and you'd hope that would be loud enough to keep me up at night
but i swear it when i say to you
i sleep just like a baby
with all the sinful things i say,
the things i do
not one of them will phase me

and i guess this time around i've got a problem
see we're all a product of the place we live
and i'm well aware nobody owes me anything
my mother's father told me loud and clear
set your clock, your chin up high and sell your time
earn your dollars, feel it in your hands
set your clock, your chin up high and sell your time
earn your dollars, feel it in your hands, whoa
set your clock, your chin up high and sell your time
earn your dollars, feel it in your hands

and you still can't give it up, whoa
each and every time i try to climb i seem to fall
i suppose it's just a lie
and the one you love's not really yours at all, whoa
and you'd hope that would be loud enough to keep me up at night
i swear it when i say to you
i sleep just like a baby
but all the sinful things i say,
the things i do
not one of them will phase me
