a penny in my pocket
is all I have left
from a fortune made
out of time, problems, and regret

a picture in my wallet
is all I have left
from a relationship made
out of love, trust, and respect

I have nothing in my hands
and that signifies the truth
and shows, what is left
of my shattered youth

am I a man
I can not say
am I alive
No, not today

I've been around for 19 years
never shedding any tears

I've heard the story many times
always ending with the same crime

I started out without a dime
now time is running thin
I've tried to stand for something
something I believe in

(chorus)
to be alive
makes me mad
to be in love
is just a fad
to see things happen
before your eyes
things that never happen twice
is not so bad

I've seen winners come and go
and seen time take it's toll

I've seen man hide behind a mask
and fail to accomplish the simplest task

I've seen a bird swerve into a car
I've seen a shooting star
I've seen life from afar
I've seen it all

so what do you see in me, A boy, A man, am I a wannabe
do you have faith in me, or am I lost
what I see in you, is nothing but a lie
something to hide behind and die,
why are you fighting for wrong cause

nothing works out the way that you plan
nothing works out the way that you plan
