Strike another match
Babe, let’s watch it burn
They say the simple truth
Is the hardest to learn
Trouble has been beside me
At each and every turn
I guess it’s something here inside me
Fairly hard to discern

I don’t know who loves me
I only know who don’t
I don’t know who will
I sure as hell know who won’t
I can’t see the rainbow
I only see the rain
It's hard to see the beauty
Around so much pain

I can’t see the heavens
I can only see the sky
I’m a half empty kinda guy

Everything I wanted
Always slowly slipped away
Right when I need it most
It’s always been this way

I still feel like a clown
Standing here with the painted tears
I finally put that bottle down
After all these years

So now I'm finally clean
But I’m as dirty as I’ve been
Where it all went wrong
I couldn’t tell you how or when
So I’ll just keep on keeping on
Hope there'll come a day
These shackles will be gone
And I’ll be on my way

There ain’t no silver lining
I’ve searched low and high
Yeah I’m a half empty kinda guy

I cannot recall
The last time I heard good news
I just ramble around
Singing these strange sort of blues

A gypsy read my cards to me
And she let out a yell
There was a hangman
And a tower and a high priestess jezebel
Then death oh death……why oh why
Yeah I’m a half empty kinda guy

Lately something strange
Has been happening to me
I wake nightly from slumber
Filled with fear and anxiety

Then I wrestle round for hours
With the voices in my head
Telling me what I should have done
And everything I should have said

If I wasn’t laughing…
You could bet that I would cry
Yeah I’m a half empty kinda guy
