HAT IN HAND

Copyright 2019 Robert E. Shandor

 

I always felt the need

To live life my own way

I never understood

The price for that I’d pay

There were things I could’ve known

But I just turned away

 

I’ve never been the kind

That had a lot to say

I was often self-contained

And words got in my way

I held much so deep inside

That my chance slipped away

 

So, here I stand, hat in hand

Knowing I’ll never be your man

Now I need to find some way

To get over you

Oh, yeah!

Now I need to find some way

To get over you

 

Looking back, I’ve come to know

The love you offered me

What I’d gladly buy today

You’d tried to give me free

But I never saw ‘til now

What you and I could be

 

It wasn’t that I wanted to

Be difficult, you see

It’s just that I didn’t know

How else I should be

Now I find I’ve lost you

And you’ve given up on me  

 

So, here I stand, hat in hand

Knowing I’ll never be your man

Now I need to find some way

To get over you

Oh, yeah!

Now I need to find some way

To get over you

 

I never wanted to

Have a lot to say

And even though they were few

My words got in my way

So I held things deep inside

And drove your love away

 

I always thought that I

Could live life my own way

But there were things I never learned

Because I turned away

Now I wish that I had known

The price for that I’d pay

 

So, here I stand, hat in hand

Knowing I’ll never be your man

Now I need to find some way

To get over you

Oh, yeah!

Now I need to find some way

To get over

Now I need to find some way

To get over

Now I need to find some way

To get over you
