Look inside the mirror
But I don't know who I see
Smoke another cigarette
A smile holds back the tears
These contradictions
Seem to be the story of my life
A simple man with memories
Of those long lost golden days
I close my eyes and slowly driftaway

Mistakes I've made remind me
Of the roads I shouldn't choose
Never comes that easy
When you've nothing left to lose
I can't see the answers
Tell me why am I so blind?
A tired man who'll make the best
Of another lonely day
I close my eyes and slowly driftaway

Never thought I'd make it
Just from playin' my guitar
Just a little smile
Always shelters me from pain
Everytime I start to slide
I wish upon a star
The sun comes out
And dries up all the rain

I'm an honest man
Who refused the shade
On a hot and lonely day
I close my eyes and dream my life away
Now I know that I can stop the rain
Close my eyes and slowly driftaway
