They say talk about what you know best and what you really feel

And color all your words for all to hear

I must confess that I fall short from intellectuality

But it doesn’t mean that don’t hold most things near

And if I was to say to you I was a guru in this life

Of philosophy and the workings of the mind

You’d be quick to dismiss all I say as the ranting of a fool

And I’d tell you friend, you wouldn’t be unkind

But I know broke!

I know pain!

I know how it is to crawl through life without a dime to your name!

I know broke!

And I know shame!

I know how it feels to watch your life go circling down the drain!

I’m the guy who always tries to make better of his self.

Doing everything I can to get ahead

But every time I fantasize of growing into wealth

Everything I plant always seems to wind up dead

It would be grand if I could have just a fraction of success

Something I can grab a hold onto

I can’t recall what made me fall and land into this mess

And forced me to write down these words for you



Now after the darkness then comes the dawn

If I keep those words in my heart I can carry on

Now I’m not inclined to place the blame on anybody else

After all it’s my own fault I’m in this way

And I do admit sometimes I sit feeling sorry for my self

But I swear to you I’ll be back in the black someday.

[Chorus x2]
