When I was down you just stood there grinnin'
You gotta lotta nerve to say you got a helping hand to lend
You just wanna be on the side that's winnin'
You say I let you down, you know it's not like that
If you're so hurt why then don't you show it?
You say you lost your faith, but that's not where it's at
You have no faith to lose, and you know it
I know the reason that you talk behind my back
I used to be among the crowd you're in with
Do you take me for such a fool
To think I would make contact?
The one who tries to hide what he don't know
To begin with
You see me on the street, you always act surprised
You say How are you? Good luck! but you don't mean it
When you know as well as me
You'd rather see me paralized
Why don't you just come at once out screaming
No, I do not feel that good
I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief perhaps I'd rob them
And though you're dissatisfied with your position
And your place
Don't you understand, it's not my problem?
I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is to see you.
