I've figured out where I went wrong
The script I followed then was awful long
Too much plot too little of
Me acting right not acting up
I've worn the world upon my back
Let someone else but me pick up the slack
Just because I could say,
"It's my life, do things my way"
Now I'm looking up more than I look down
The view's a whole lot better second time around
Too much of me was hidden in the shadows
I looked up and felt my feet lift off the ground
I color life with a broader stroke
The laughter comes as easy as the jokes
Nowadays I'm thinking that
Time is wasted looking back
(repeat chorus)
You drop a bucket in a well
It's dark and deep down there
Crank the handle, bring it up
The water's crystal clear
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
