lyrics

I’m tired of this town, I’m tired of this street
Tired of all the talking, I’m too tired to speak
I’m searching for trust in a world of deceit
What I already trust I no longer seek
I’m tired of being told to have a voice all of my own

I’m tired of feeling nervous, tired of the pain in my chest
I’d go see a doctor but I’m tired of all the tests
I’m thinking about a girl I once tried to undress
She laughed in my face, I can’t remember the rest
I’m tired of this body with a mind all of its own

It seems I find more trouble every time I turn around
Behind every corner someone’s there to knock me down
I’m tired of always having to pick myself up off the ground
I’m tired of being tired, I’ve been too long in this town

I’m tired of wasting time when I’ve got no time to waste
But how I waste my time is just a matter of taste
I’m tired of finding answers to all the problems that I’ve faced
Tired of finding out that my love has been misplaced
I’m tired of people measuring the love that I’ve shown

I’m tired of all my mornings spent the same old way
Tired of lonely nights and tired of wasted days
Tired of always searching for something nice to say
Tired of waiting round for all the nice people to go away
Tired of always reaping everything I’ve sewn

It seems I find more trouble every time I turn around
Behind every corner someone’s there to knock me down
I’m tired of always having to pick myself up off the ground
I’m tired of being tired, I’ve been too long in this town

I’m tired of taking orders, letting others take the lead
I’m living in the slow lane, too tired to pick up speed
There’s people in this world who have everything they need
I guess it could be luck, I like to think it’s greed
I’m tired of people telling me of all the chances that I’ve blown
