no one wants to be a captain
of a sorry sinking ship
cause when it starts to sink, you think
do i gotta go down with it?
no one wants to be the bearer
of incredibly bad news
cause when you’re the one dropping the bomb
you’ve got everything to lose
what if three years turns into thirty-something?
what if all you got was a whole lot of nothing?
what if thirty-something turns into three kids?
and you screw ‘em up just like your parents did?
no one wants to be the writer
of a book that’s never read
all those words once full of life
may as well be dead
no one wants to be the bad guy, baby
wouldn’t you agree?
honey you’re so good, i guess
the bad guy’s gotta be me
