Default A Better Man


I care for nothing
I care for no one
I spent my life
Chasing after fun
Chasing after women
One night stands
I wish I'd been
A Better Man

A Better Man
Would've raised his son
Stayed at the Post Office
Til his time was done
Helped out his parents
Stayed outta Vegas
Stayed away from vice
Smoke and drink

I lived to waste
To spend it all
On games and music
Above the law
Drifting around
Town to town
I let no one
Tie me down

Looking back now
On a wasted life
I'd change a lot
Make it right

A Better Man
Would've raised his son
Stayed at the Post Office
Til his time was done
Helped out his parents
Stayed outta Vegas
Stayed away from vice
Smoke and drink
