I don't want to be the one to break you
But could I please borrow some change
You see my car's broke down and I need some gasoline
It's cold out here do you know what I mean

Did I let you down
Did I throw away all your expectations

So I reached in my pocket and I grabbed some change
I said it's nice to meet you, what's your name
You look like you could use a friend

'cause I'm not like all the rest
'cause I know what it's like to be down on your luck
And you and me we're just the same

It probably won't make a difference
But they say you get what you give
And I feel lucky for the things I have
'cause God knows man that ain't no way to live

Did I let you down
Did I throw away all your expectations

I didn't mean to hurt you
I didn't even stop
I didn't even give you the time to explain your situation
I got my own situation
It's true in a lot of ways
I'm just like you

So I reached in my pocket and I grabbed some change
I said it's nice to meet you, what's your name
You look like you could use a friend

I'm not like all the rest
'cause I know what it's like to be down on your luck
And you and me we're just the same
