Lyrics

I feel like more a man but maybe less a human being

I killed some living things this week, I don’t know what it means
We used to stare at the water here but they’re blocking out our view That concrete wall needs a wrecking ball and a demolition crew
Too many bills, oil ain’t cheap, and my back is getting sore
I feel like I’m an old man getting near bout 84
I’ll try to be a good man that’ll never let you down
Even when the world has got our backs against the ground
I wish I had some super powers like big John Coffey
I’d take away the pain I saw in every country
I’d suck away the bad that you ever saw or heard
Don’t ever be afraid I wouldn’t let them get my girl
Chorus
I hope you know that I’m there for you, no matter what they put us through
I hope you know that I won’t back down, no matter if I’m bleeding on the ground

I want to write a song that could hold you if I die
Tell you all the things I used to say when I was alive Maybe I could build a boat and sail with you to sea
Float free in the water while I whisper pleasantries
I’m far as hell from a rich man but I’ll give you all I can
I ain’t got much for money but I’ll give you all I am
Any time it’s getting hard I’ll be there at your side
A thousand different armies couldn’t stop me if they tried

Chorus
I hope you know that I’m there for you, no matter what they put us through
I hope you know that I won’t back down, no matter if I’m bleeding on the ground

I want to write a song that could hold you if I die
