    Lyrics

    The bar closes early on the sabbath day
    So me and my kid we hit the park to play
    Then it starts to rain so we walked home again
    He asked why he was born
    I don't know what to say
    I don't feel guilty and I don't feel sad
    This mother-fucking life is the best he's had
    I said I've been there sonny and it ain't that bad
    I took my hits from the shits back when I was a lad

    So long ago and even though I tried
    I couldn't make him see
    The light that he had cast in front of me
    And even though I cried
    I couldn't make him be
    The very thing I needed

    His mother would make a scene when I come home late
    She looks like she's dying and she's twenty-eight
    I never loved that whore
    I never will no more
    Except for a month back in '84
    The jammin' was playing and my heart stood still
    Gazing at her shadow on the windowsill

    So long ago and even though I tried
    I couldn't make her see
    I wasn't quite the man she thought I'd be
    And even though I cried
    I couldn't make her be
    The very thing I needed

    And eve though I tried
    I couldn't make her see
    I wasn't quite the man she thought I'd be
    And even though I cried
    I couldn't make her be
    The very thing I needed

    Could she be the very thing I needed?
    Could she be the very thing?
    Push yourself away from your one best friend
    Who's gonna love you when you reach the end?
    Who will?
    Who will?
