BABY, I’VE BEEN HEARTLESS
BABY, I’VE BEEN WILD
YOU GAVE YOUR PRECIOUS TRUST UNTO ME LIKE A CHILD
BUT I TOSSED IT AWAY AND LEFT YOU DEFILED
NOW THIS GROUND IS BARREN FOR MILES AND MILES

COULD YOU EVER FORGIVE ALL THAT I’VE DONE
I CUT YOU DOWN
I SMOKED YOU OUT
THAT’S HOW THIS WORLD IS RUN
BUT I’M SINGING A TUNE THAT’S MUCH DIFFERENT NOW
YOU NEVER KNOW HOW YOU’LL MISS WHAT’S NO LONGER AROUND

YESTERDAY’S A DIFFERENT STORY
I WASN’T OF THIS MIND BEFORE
WALKING AROUND IN MY HAZE OF GLORY
AND NEVER REALIZING THAT YOU’RE
A THING OF BEAUTY
THING OF BEAUTY
YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL

NOW I KNOW THIS IS MY WORLD
BUT NOT TO ABUSE AS I PLEASE
AT TIMES I SEE
GREATER POSSIBILITIES

MAYBE IF I PLEADED
MAYBE IF I BEGGED
YOU’D FIND IT IN YOU TO COME BACK
COME BACK FROM THE DEAD
BUT IT’S TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE,
TOO MUCH TO REPAIR
I CHOSE A FINE, FINE TIME
TO START TO CARE

NOW I KNOW THIS IS MY WORLD
BUT NOT TO ABUSE AS I PLEASE
I BELIEVE THIS IS MY WORLD
BUT IT DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND ME
AT TIMES I SEE
GREATER POSSIBILITIES
