A quiet reflection in the small hours


AIN'T THE MAN

Always three steps forward
And twenty steps back
Catchin' the last train
Runnin' on the wrong track
I look in the mirror
And no reflection do I see
I sure as hellain't the man
I wanted to be

The stars shine for lovers
And they burn out when I look
Roulette spins my last cent
Mister I'm outta luck
I'm trapped in self pity
While murderers run free
I sure as hell ain't the man
I wanted to be

[BRIDGE]
It's the same damn story from the same worn out book
The chapters turn to volumes in my life
I've see the finishing line way off in the distance
But it never gets closer and that ain't right

I look in the mirror
And no reflection do I see
I sure as hellain't the man
I wanted to be
I'm trapped in self pity
While murderers run free
I sure as hell ain't the man
I wanted to be

I went to check out this song. I thought you posted it but I saw that you didn’t so I listened to “Disappear” a strong try. I really like the melody… Great lyrics
