I won't take your pity
And I won't be ignored
I don't want your money
But I wouldn't mind to be adored

I won't be forgotten
I won't be denied
I can't be held guilty
For anything I might've tried

And there's no spooks around my door
Payin' my rent or sweepin' my floor
I never said things that I never did mean
Once or twice I've lied

I've always been kind to women
Who have taken me in

Sometimes you're a sinner
Sometimes you just can't win

I can't live forever
But I can't be blamed for tryin'
I won't beg forgiveness
Just because you won't find me cryin'

I don't want you thinkin'
That I'm a gutless man
Street fights they don't scare me
But I avoid them when I can

There's no doubt about it
It's a pointless age
Built with minimum rage

It's hard to be a saint
When you steal the best lines
Someone else implied

I've never been one to talk much
I've just lived in my skin

Sometimes you're a loser
And sometimes you just can't win

I won't be a hound dog
I won't be your boss
I can't compensate you
For anything you might've lost

I don't understand you
What's to understand?
You joined last night's choir
Me, I joined the band

And there's no reason
Just cold hard facts
Nothing's ever real
Man the truth just cracks

I don't want this
'Cause I've got mine
Jealousy's not my style

Someday I'll get bored
And contemplate giving in

Sometimes you're a saint
Sometimes you just can't win
