Kid Rock – Only God Knows Why lyrics

I've been sittin' here
Trying to find myself
I get behind myself
I need to rewind myself
Looking for the payback
Listen for the playback
They say that every man
Bleeds just like me
And I feel like number one
But yet I'm last in line
I watch my younger son
And it helps to pass the time
I take to many pills
It helps to ease the pain
I made a couple dollar bills
But still I feel the same
Everybody knows my name
They say it way out loud
A lot of folks fuck with me
It's hard to hang out in crowds
I guess that's the price you pay
To be some big shot like I am
Outstretched hands and one night stands
Still I can't find love

And when your walls come tumbling down
I will always be around

People don't know about the things
I say and do they don't understand
About the shit that I've
Been through, it's been so long
Since I've been home I've been gone,
I've been gone for way too long
Maybe I forgot all the things I miss
Oh somehow I know there's more to life
Than this, I said it too many times
And I still stand firm you get what
You put in and people get what they
Deserve, still I ain't seen mine
No I ain't seen mine
I've been giving just ain't been gettin'
I've been walking down that line
So I think I'll keep walking
With my head held high
I'll keep moving on and only God
Knows why

Only God... Only God
Only God knows why
Only God... Knows... Why, why, why only
God knows why
Take me to the river hey
Take me to the river
