"Am I Wrong" as written by Richard Lofthouse Butler and Timothy Butler....
There's too much
That I keep to myself
And I turn my back on my faith
It's like glass
When we break
I wish no one in my place

And I've seen
You don't need their seeds
When their dirt goes in deep
And I'm lost in sleep

I can't stay
In this place
I can't stand
When the room turns round
On my fate
You give no guarantees
There's no promise
I can keep

I can't stand
I can't see my way
I feel blind
On my feet
I can't stay too long
Am I wrong?

Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
Goodbye, lay the blame on luck

I'm so tired
Of my mood
And sleep comes
With a knife, fork and a spoon
You're so pale
In your face
You let life
Get in your way

And I've seen
You don't need their seeds
When their dirt goes in deep
And I'm lost in sleep
Am I wrong?

Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
Goodbye, lay the blame on luck
Goodbye, lay the blame on luck

    General CommentI always felt it was a cry for help before suicide because of the following lyrics, and there are many:

    -"theres too much that I keep to myself and I turn my back on my faith" depressed people usually keep their problems to themselves and lose faith in everything

    -"..when we break, I wish no one in my place" an obvious relationship break up

    -"when the dirt goes in deep" also the alternative lyrics of "when the cut goes in deep and I'm lost in sleep" pretty straight forward reference to wrist cutting

    -"I can't stay in this place, I can't stand when the room turns round on my fate" a depressed person doesn't want to stay in their life, they feel their world spinning or closing in on them

    -"I can't see my way, I feel blind" as anyone who is unhappy with life would feel

    -"I can't stay too long, am I wrong" wants understanding for wanting to leave this life

    -"goodbye, lay the blame on luck" simple goodbye, not wanting to lay blame on anyone in particular

    there is more but the only person that can truly understand any song is the song writer.
