    "My Life" Lyrics

    Phil Ochs

    My life was once a joy to me
    never knowing, I was growing, every day.
    My life was once a toy to me
    and I wound it and I found it ran away.
    So I raced through the night
    with a face at my feet, like a god I would write,
    all the melodies were sweet, and the women were white.
    It was easy to survive, my life was so alive.

    My life was once a flag to me
    and I waved it and behaved like I was told.
    My life was once a drag to me

    and I loudly and I proudly lost control.
    I was drawn by a dream,I was loved by a lie,
    every serf on the scene begged me to buy
    but I slipped through the scheme
    So lucky to fail, my life was not for sale.

    My life is now a myth to me
    like the drifter, with his laughter in the dawn.
    My life is now a death to me
    so I'll mold it and I'll hold it till I'm born.
    So I turned to the land where I'm so out of place
    Throw a curse on the plan in return for the grace
    To know where I stand
    Take everything I own
    Take your tap from my phone
    And leave my life alone
    My life alone.
