Sit down dear we gotta talk
Your acting like a kid
We don't want to hear about
The things you never did

You coulda been a legend
But you became a father
That's what you are today
That's what you are today

Spending all your time
Somewhere inside your head
Haunted by the important
Life you coulda lead
