14 Years

     I try and feel the sunshine
     You bring the rain
     You try and hold me down
     With your complaints
     You cry and moan and complain
     You whine an tear
     Up to my neck in sorrow
     The touch you bring
     You just don't step inside to
     14 years
     So hard to keep my own head...
     That's what I say
     You know...I've been the beggar...
     I've played the thief
     I was the dog...they all tried to beat

     But it's been
     14 years of silence
     It's been
     14 years of pain
     It's been
     14 years that are gone forever
     And I'll never have again

     Your stupid girlfriends tell you
     That I'm to blame
     Well they're all used-up has-beens
     Out of the game
     This time I'll have the last word
     You hear what I say
     I tried to see it your way
     It won't work today
     You just don't step inside to
     14 years
     So hard to keep my own head...
     That's what I say
     You know...I've been the dealer...
     Hangin' on your street
     I was the dog...they all tried to beat

     But it's been
     14 years of silence
     It's been
     14 years of pain
     It's been
     14 years that are gone forever
     And I'll never have again

     Bullshit and contemplation
     Gossip's their trade
     If they knew half the real truth
     What would they say
     Well I'm past the point of concern
     It's time to play
     These last 4 years of madness
     Sure put me straight
     Don't get back 14 years
     In just one day
     So hard to keep my own head
     Just go away
     You know...just like a hooker she said
     Nothin's for free
     Oh I tried to see it your way
     I tried to see it your way
