My Bright Future

Look at you brother
Hair black and bright shiny eyes
Chest full of hope and dreams
Still believing all of their lies
That was me once brother
Oh but it’s plain to see
Much as I hate to admit it
My bright future is behind me

They told me I was special
All I needed was one big break
I was too dumb to know
They was all about take take take
It’s all downhill from here brother
And it’s now so very clear to me
Much as I hate to admit it
My bright future is behind me

May your luck be better brother
I truly wish you all the best
All the success that escaped me
Money and women, and all the rest
It’s not long now brother
I’ll stop hiding from what I see
Find the spine to accept it
My bright future is behind me

Yeah, it’s behind me
Way way behind me
I got to move on along
Get those fool dreams out of my head
My bright future is behind me
My bright future is behind me
My bright future is behind me
