John Mellencamp – In Our Lives lyrics

Written by John Mellencamp

Well I'm a middle-aged teenager
I'm a man of angst and leisure
Doin' the best that I can do
My problems are incorrect
I've always got it around my neck
Hey I'm just like you
Yeah I've done some good and I've done some bad
But the most fun that I ever had
Was singing my songs for you
And if I should go astray
I'd get down on my knees and pray
Say God forgive me for what I do

Oh in our lives
There's no right way for us to live it
You know in our lives
There's a time to cry and a time to forget it

Well I'm a broke down humble man
Baby that's just who I am
And that's from me to you
Well I feel good here
Got about a million more years
To do what it is I gotta do
And if some day you happen to be passin' my way
Say hi, hello, how are you
Well, I'll return the gesture in kind
And hope that things are fine
And you all just do what you gotta do

Oh in our lives
There's no right way for us to live it
Oh in our lives
There's a time to cry and a time to get with it
You know in our lives there's no right way for us to live it.

Well I'm a broke down humble man
That's just who I am
And that's from me to you
Yeah I'm a broke down humble man
Yeah that's just who I am
And that's from me to you

Oh in our lives
You know in our lives
Yeah in our lives there's no right way for us to live it

    I believe john mellencamp is influenced by his sympathy with ecclesiastes and his disdain of facism. John mellencamp quotes ecclesiastes inside the cover of lonesome jubilee and has f* facism written on his quitar. I feel many of john's songs have a lot of "angst and leisure" themes. I feel this is an obvious window into the psyche of john. However, he is a walking contradiction, as he is very tenacious and ambitious.
