I'm a ragged man with a ragged heart
But I wear my soul with pride

You can see me on the road
See me carrying my home.
And perhaps it seems that I'm all alone
But I'm happy here inside

You can keep your fancy dress
'cause to me it don't impress.

When I look in your face that camera smile looks out of place on you

And by the look in your eyes I can see you realize.

So lend yourself to me
I'll show you what could be.

Well
I've come so far down so many roads

I've experienced your pain

You know that that's a fact
I can see the way you act.
But I learn to see what was wrong with me and I won't go back again

I know I've made mistakes
But I also made the break.

You surround yourself with secrets
You are afraid to show to the world

You convince yourself there's no other way to go
Don't you -
See the smile on my face
Does it looks so out of place ?

So lend yourself to me
I'll show you what could be.
So many ways for you to spend the passing days.

Loving is living or losing and using

Life is forgiving
So use it well.
Feeling
Revealing or wheeling and dealing

Life's not for stealing and time will tell.

Loving is living or losing and using
-take a look at your face-
Life is forgiving
So use it well.-take a look at your face-
Feeling
Revealing or wheeling and dealing

Life's not for stealing and time will tell.

You must surely know man made heaven
Then man made hell

So take a look at yourself
What's this secret you can't tell me ?
When I look at your face I see your smile
So out of place on you

And by the look in your eyes I can see you realize
Oh yeah !
