lyrics

Back in the day, I was the man
I had it all in the palm of my hand
I could’ve showed you all the world
Rolling on up with your flag unfurled

You were the one, never in doubt
Who’s stepping up and who’s stepping out?
Sneaking around ain’t doing you good
Ready to run I didn’t think you would

Tell me why you can lie
But you won’t cry, cry for me
Burning down this broken town
The biggest fire you’ve ever seen

There was a time, there was a place
All of the steps that I could retrace
Breaking the mould, breaking the bed
Back of the door beat me over the head

Over the page, making the turn
Don’t look down while you’re hugging the curve
Talking it up, haven’t you heard?
Same old voice for your new concerns

Tell me why you can lie
But you won’t cry, cry for me
Burning down this broken town
The biggest fire you’ve ever seen

You won’t cry for me
You won’t cry for me
You won’t cry for me
There’ll be tears before bedtime though, you’ll see

I had it all in the palm of my hand
I had it all in the palm of my hand
I had it all in the palm of my hand
I had it all but it turned into sand
