 You were under the impression that when you were walking forwards
          |                |C/D    
That you'd end up further onward,

But things ain't quite that simple

You got altered information, you were told to not take chances 
You missed out on new dances, now you're losing all your dimples

Get a job and fight to keep it, strike out to reach a mountain 
Be so nice on the outside, but inside keep ambition

Love, rain on me, rain o'er me 
Love, reign o'er me, Love.................

I've had enough of dancehalls, I've had enough of pills
I've had enough of streetfights, I've seen my share of kills 
I'm finished with the fashions and actin' like I'm tough

I'm bored with hate and passion, I've had enough of trying to love
