This was a very difficult song to write. It's over 30 years of memories and tries and failures wrapped up in these simple lyrics. Every line is embedded with a lifetime of scars.

Lyrics

I gave the world my soul
It gave me nothing in return
now the fires are growing cold
on all the bridges that I've burned

and I'm sitting here wondering what went wrong
that my whole life
should be written down in these unwanted songs

what am i here for?
what purpose have I served?
I've knocked on slamming doors
until my knuckles bled
and my spirit hurt

still I'm sitting here
wondering what went wrong
that my whole life
should be written down
in these unwanted songs

tell me why would you pass by me Lord
when I die
will you hear my cry
or just ignore that too
like you always do?
just like you always do

I gave the world my soul
it gave me nothing in return
