Don’t bother trying to understand me
I’ve been trying my whole life
I’m complex and complicated
I am stupid and I’m sharper than a knife.
Save your breath and all your questions
For I really haven’t got a clue
Why the life I‘ve led is as it is
And why it is that I do what I do.
Perhaps it’s in my blueprint
Or maybe it’s my DNA
Because some things you cannot plan for
They just turn out that way.
I’ve known good times, I’ve known sad times
And all that lies betwixt and in between
I’ve done things that I am proud of
And I’ve seen things no boy should see.
So don’t waste time trying to understand me
Please just accept me as I am
As I don’t have all the answers
And I have no long term plan.
I’m not a role model, saint or hero
I’m just an ordinary man
And all I’ve ever tried to be
Is the best me that I can.
