I don't know why,
I even try to be simple
When all I find
Is everything complicated
When I left home
I found the holes in my pockets
My parents smiled
They didn't know I was frightened
Tried to start a life
Tried to make a point
Tried to start a life
It's harder than you think
As I shoved off
I took a good look behind me
My tether gone
A greater binding awaiting
Tried to start a life
Tried to make a point
Tried to start a life
It's harder than you think
Tried to start a life
Tried to make a point
Tried to start a life
I thought I heard the shot
But I cannot tell
Think that I can run
But I cannot tell
Wish I had it made
But I cannot tell what I do not know
Still I press on
Into the ground I am keeping
With any luck
I hope to make an arrangement
Tried to start a life
Tried to make a point
Tried to start a life
It's harder than you think
Tried to start a life
Tried to make a point
Tried to start a life
It's harder than you think
Tried to start a life ...
