born jaded

well it might sound funny but it wasn't supposed to be me
'cos I was destined for the life of luxury
and it might sound strange but I really wasn't meant to fall down
when I've been holding it together for so long now

so what do you want from me?
I've given all I can - you can't ask no more of any man
I lost the key, I don't believe in me
& you are all I have, I don't care no more, won't take no chances
I lost the key - do you believe in me?

well my head's still spinning so you'll have to pardon me
but it all seems to be an exercise in mediocrity
& it doesn't seem right that our lives go on the way we would have been
when I ain't much taken with the things that life has got to offer me
