The Landlord or the Guest

 


Change Myself

Foolin' ourselves runnin this road
Fooling ourselves lookin away
Couple of fools ragged and bruised
Losin' a game we chose to play
Words that were spoken
That no one will own
Now everything's broken
There's rust on the chrome

We took a punch straight to the heart
We took a punch straight to the head
Danciní around like marionettes
Talkiní too much nothiní gets said
Now everyoneís crying
With something to prove
Though we both keep trying
Love's hard to remove

Gonna have to change myself
Gonna have to change myself
It may be the hardest thing that Iíve ever done
But Iím gonna have to change myself

We took a ride in my black car
We took a ride full speed ahead
We didn't stop
We didn't look back
We didnít know where this road led
Now the rivers are rising
And the water is cold
The weather's surprising
It 's not what we were told

Gonna have to change myself
Gonna have to change myself
It may be the cruelest thing that Iíve ever done
But Iím gonna have to change myself
   

Can you see through the haze of the world's misty eyes
As she cries for this love
Dressed in mystery and lies?
Did you hear her soft moans as the dusk faded black?
Sent a chill through my bones
I don't think she's comin back
   
Now and again the universe screams
Now and again the long shot comes in
Now and again it's not as it seems
Now and again we're cleansed of our sin

Nobody else in this sad scene
Nobody knows how we really feel
I'm just a fool playin' a fool
I'm just a wheel inside a wheel
Maybe tomorrow it all fades away
And we rise from this sorrow
But first today I'm gonna have to change myself

Gonna have to change myself
It may be the bravest thing that Iíve ever done
But Iím gonna have to change myself
