Under the Overpass
Dallas Wayne

V.1
THIS CARDBOARD CASTLE
AND A SAFEWAY CART
HOLD EVERYTHING I OWN
THERE AIN'T MUCH LEFT
OF WHAT I ONCE WAS
THIS IS ALL I HAVE TO SHOW
I HARDLY RATE A PASSING THOUGHT
IN THE BEAM OF YOUR HEADLIGHTS
JUST A GHOST OF THE MAN I USED TO BE
SLEEPIN' UNDER THE OVERPASS TONIGHT

V.2
IN YOUR EYES
I DON'T EXIST
SOMEONE WHO'S LOST HIS PRIDE
A BROKEN MAN
NO ONE CAN FIX
BUT YOU CAN'T SEE INSIDE
SOMEONE TO WALK AWAY FROM FAST
HE'S PROBABLY DRUNK OR HIGH
BUT I'M MORE LIKE YOU THAN YOU'LL EVER KNOW
SLEEPIN' UNDER THE OVERPASS TONIGHT

CH.
ALL IT TOOK WAS ONE GOODBYE
FOR MY WORLD TO TUMBLE DOWN
AND ONE BY ONE MY HOPES AND DREAMS
CAME CRASHING TO THE GROUND
SHE STILL SLIPPED THRU MY FINGERS
'THO I TRIED TO HOLD ON TIGHT
'TILL I FINALLY LOST MY GRIP
NOW I'M SLEEPIN'
UNDER THE OVERPASS TONIGHT

REPEAT CH.
