Has Been (Dallman Christopher)

I’m a fraud, I pretend I ain’t chasing glory Just a lonely wanderer Trying to tell a simple story You can feel free To cry or laugh At the kid with the carefully Practiced autograph So, I’ll be the has been who never was Hold my breath and I’ll jump from this boxcar because It circles the mountain and never starts to climb I’ll leave my pennies on the railroad track I’ll jump from this train, you know, I won’t look back Leave this jumble of words for someone else to rhyme I say that every time I’ll take a seat right at the bar That I’m too young to fill I’ll sit and think, sip on the drink That I never seem to kill Because the fella that’s pouring ‘em Yeah, he knows the deal I’m always one drink shy Of how I want to feel So, I’ll be the has been who never was Hold my breath and I’ll jump from this boxcar because It circles the mountain and never starts to climb I’ll leave my pennies on the railroad track I’ll jump from this train, you know, I won’t look back Leave this jumble of words for someone else to rhyme I say that every time And it just gets to me You get what I mean? That the best of me is still unseen That the best of me is still unseen
