Lyrics

Everything I Got

I couldn’t believe my eyes that night
I couldn’t believe what I heard
Watching you walkin’ down Broadway
Without even saying a word
But this ain’t nothing new
We’ve been through this drill before
Smashin’ dishes in the kitchen
And slammin’ our bedroom door

And all the time we’ve been together
Most of that time was good
You never got what you wanted
And I knew you never would

Wanderin' the graveyards of my mind
Searching for something true
With each step I realize
That I’m not the man for you
You’ve given everything you could
But I can’t be something I’m not
And what you’re gettin’ baby isn’t enough
I’ve given everything I’ve got

I told you just how hard it would be
And how hard it’d be on you
I only know how to destroy
Things so rare and true
I take no pride in all these feelings
No pride in these feelings at all
Addictions, afflictions and contradictions
Are bound to make a good man fall

I keep movin’ every chance I get
It’s the way I’ve been taught to think
I chase things I don’t even want
I stay up all night and drink

I wander the graveyards of my mind
Searching for something to pull us through
With each gravestone I realize
That I’m not the man for you
You’ve given everything you could
But I can’t be something I’m not
And what you’re getting baby isn’t enough
I’ve given everything I got

I don’t know why I do half the things I do
Or say half the things that I say
All you wanted was a love so true
But you found a man to paint your blue skies grey

It’s hard for me to put it into words
It’s hard for me to communicate
I have all these feelings that I feel
But when they come out, they disintegrate

I wanderin' the graveyards of my mind
Searching for something new
With each step I realize
That I’m not the man for you
You’ve given everything you could
But I can’t be something I’m not
What you’re getting baby isn’t enough
But I’ve given everything I’ve got
I wander round the graveyards of my mind
For something true
With each gravestone I realize
I’m not the man for you
You’ve given everything to me
But I can’t be something I’m not
What you’re getting baby isn’t enough
And i’ve given everything I’ve got
