    Lyrics

    Making money at thirty with a wife and a son
    Then a short five years later it all comes undone
    She's gone back to mama with the boy by her side
    Now I'm wine drunk and running with them on my mind

    I'm on the backside of thirty and back on my own
    An empty apartment don't feel like a home
    On the backside of thirty, the short side of time
    Back on the bottom with no will to climb

    It's dawn Monday morning and I just called in sick
    I skipped work last Friday to drink this much red
    And when my friends ask me, Lord, I'll tell them I'm fine
    But my eyes tell a story that my lies can't hide

    I'm on the backside of thirty and back on my own
    An empty apartment don't feel like a home
    On the backside of thirty, the short side of time
    Back on the bottom with no will to climb

    We knew we had problem with no chance to win
    Pretended we'd make it, does she have the kid?
    And he made life better for two years or more
    But now weekends between us, will be his reward

    I'm on the backside of thirty and back on my own
    An empty apartment don't feel like a home
    On the backside of thirty, the short side of time
    Back on the bottom with no will to climb
