Life Supposed to Be
Lyrics
I ask you
You answer me
That's the way
Life supposed to be
It's so funny
How did you know?
When I talk
You're quick to go

I've got your photograph of what it means
To be unclean, to be unseen
I was blind, I could not see
Until the light come over me

I shed my dreams
I break my back
To give you somethin'
That you lack
I'm done with tryin'
I'm done with pain
I'm goin' back
On the southbound train

I've got your photograph of what it means
To be unclean, to be unseen
I was blind, I could not see
Until the light come over me

So here I am
No big deal
I'll be gone
I can heal
Just one thing
Left to say
My mind's set
I just can't stay
