Sick Shift – Half My Life lyrics

Once upon a time
Thought I was the nicest guy I knew
I thought I knew who I was
Then again so did you
And the years fly by

Like a dream I couldn't grasp
I get so caught up in it all
After so much time I start to ask

How did half my life go by
You said the opportunity was
Always there for me
Gone in the blink of an eye
This time you won't be here

Once upon a time
I waited patiently in line
I had no spine
The cage of innocence was mine
Those bars are gone
Maybe I've lost something inside
Maybe it's something I can't hide
But I won't be taken for a ride

Tell me it's not too late
