She said I think I'm overwhelmed but we're just friends
Keith said well I don't need another friend

Caved in and counted out and he doesn't understand
Why are the ones that hurt the ones that hold my hand?

While they pretend to scratch your back
They hold the knife aside
And when they feel they've gained your trust
They drive it in your spine
What is it that makes them sure
Their confidence be so secure
Does everyone put prices on their pride?
No Keith Ledsome this is your life

He thinks could first impressions really be my enemy?
And is appearance so important?

Caved in and counted out and he doesn't understand
Why are the ones that hurt the ones that hold my hand?

While they pretend to scratch your back
They hold the knife aside
And when they feel they've gained your trust
They drive it in your spine
What is it that makes them sure
Their confidence be so secure
Does everyone put prices on their pride?
No Keith Ledsome this is your life

Does anyone know nights alone just waiting for that call?
I shun your sappy unity until the final fall

Throw back a few more drinks and bleed my knuckles raw
Keith says I know that you feel sorry for me
It's my life's story

While they pretend to scratch your back
They hold the knife aside
And when they feel they've gained your trust
They drive it in your spine
What is it that makes them sure
Their confidence be so secure
Does everyone put prices on their pride?
No Keith Ledsome this is your life

    General CommentThis song particualrly reminds me of this bassist in a local band around here (no names) But I trusted him and as soon as we hooked up…he stabbed me in the back. So, this song kinda reminds me of him and I’d love to dedicate it to him sometime…hmmm..
