Damn Seagulls – Once We Were Theives lyrics

I knew somebody just like you
Who never ever thought he would
Get responsible for the things he does
And in the jail he ended up

I remember once we were thieves
We had the whole world at our feet
I hop my son will find his way
And learn from my mistakes

Now I am only 22
So naive but not a fool
I write songs with my guitar
The last note is always hard to find

And maybe one day we'll get it right
I won't give up without a fight
Tonight a season ends
But the struggle still goes on and on

Now I've become just like you
I never ever thought I would
Become just a shadow of what I used to be
