you can catch him at church every once in a Sunday,
the back pew always seems to save him a seat.
where the booze sweating out from saturday night,
gets met with the tear running down his cheek.

Lord know's he loves his whiskey and women,
won't let a good time pass him by.
loves this life he has been given,
is going to till the day he dies

deep within the body of a sinner,
a saints heart does lie
would walk through fire for friends and family,
never afraid to lay down his life

to stubborn to give in to the devil,
his pride won’t let God have his soul,
he hasn't lost his sense of direction,
he's just taking the long way home

no matter how I say it, I'm gonna say it wrong

no matter how I say it,
I’m gonna say it wrong.
so I’m hoping I can reach you,
through the medley of this song,

I sat down here with this bottle,
to try and find the words.
to try and make up for,
all the pain and hurt.

you know I love you baby,
and I tried so hard to be.
everything that you deserve,
and needed me to be.

but I fell into my weakness,
lost in selfish pride.
so now I know your leaving,
and I’m alone on this ride.

and I know that I can’t stop you,
you’re still gonna go away.
but I wish I had the magic words,
that could somehow make you stay.

I could stand here looking back,
to see what I could have done.
or stand here staring at the future,
hoping someday you come home.

but the truth is I’m lost here,
without you by my side.
you’re the one that hit that spot inside me,
that made me feel alive.

I know how bad I hurt you,
and I cannot make it right.
I asked him to take care of you,
when I talked to God last night.

and even though it hurts me,
to watch you go away.
I thank him for all the time we had,
each night when I pray.

as I close this song off,
I just wanted you to know.
I’m sorry for how I hurt you,
and feel it each step as you go.

so goodbye my baby,
I hope that you can find.
everything you’re needing,
to make you happy in this life.

and if this road should ever,
bring you back to me.
I hope by then I‘m strong enough,
to be the man you need.

telling everybody how the worlds gone wrong

people are greedy, people need to share,
we gotta solve these problems, why dont people care
preaching to the choir, about everything
this greedy world and all the suffering

wants so bad to fix it, all we gotta do,
is quit being greedy,taking as much as we do,

thats what she's preaching, as she goes to work each day,
while she's ...

typing on her blackberry, talking on her phone,
telling everybody how the worlds gone wrong

people want to cage me, tell me who to be,
they think they know the answers, and how this world should be
just to greedy to let each other be free.
someone gotta change it, set this world right,
stand up to this opression, fight the good fight,
thats what he's preaching, to all his friends each day
while he's...

smoking on his peace pipe, toking on his bong,
telling everbody how the worlds gone wrong

the crazy old lady sitting on the train,
bitching about how people, treat each other these days,
she says i love everybody, until they treat me this way,
but no one wants to listen, all turn their heads away
she gets a little louder, just trying to exclaim,
but no one wants to listen to what she has to say,
that's why i keep...

strummin on his guitar, singing his song,
telling everybody how the worlds gone wrong
