Carrie Elkin – Shell Of A Man lyrics

Don't knock against me
You'll find out I'm empty
You'll find out I'm a shell of a man
Got nothing to lose but a broken heart
Feel free to take it with you
Cause it's tearing me apart

Faith was never with me
I found it all out early
I found it in the palm of my hand
The old lady said I had a few years left
But I just kept runnin'
Didn't give the girls my best

Oh goodnight, goodnight
I might not wake tomorrow
I might not say good morning
But I'll always say goodnight

Don't knock against me
You'll find out I'm empty
You'll find out I'm a shell of a man
Got seven angels singin' from a mountain on high
Hallelujah to the man with the short lifeline

Thought jesus never loved me
With a knife hangin' bove me
I'm inclined to stand on bended knee
I got one hand in my pocket so the world won't see
Where the old lady said they gonna bury me

Oh goodnight, goodnight
I might not wake tomorrow
I might not say good morning
But I'll always say goodnight

Goodnight, goodnight
I might not wake tomorrow
I might not say good morning
But I'll always say goodnight

Don't knock against me
You'll find out I'm empty
You'll find out I'm a shell of a man.
