Anything But What I Am
Oh you were there when I was feeling low
when I was giving up you gave me hope
You made me feel I was wanted and you made me lie down
and you took me in when I was feeling left out
I've been lying and I haven't been true
not to all of my friends but most of all to you
I never say I'm sorry and I never make up
Now you tell me it's alright and I don't believe my luck
But I feel good now I feel a better man
I never said I would be anything but what I am
And there's a green eyed monkey riding on my back
and this chip on my shoulder just makes me wanna talk back
I said things to hurt you and some I didn't mean
and I went and got good and drunk and wasted
when you needed me
