You say that you know who I am


United States

A beer bottle broken upon an empty table
But my friends are alright, for that I am grateful
You see every day is a battle that I fight
Never resting never stopping till I lose the light

You see the stars in the sky and you start to make a make a wish
For a phone or some money or more time to tick
Me I see the twinkling lights and wonder if they hear
The crying and the pain or if they close their ears

I guess I'll never know and I guess I'll wait to see
But I say you'll never know what it's like to be me
