a place in the line lyrics – jude cole

i had a woman
and she had a child
it lasted one summer
’till this young heart ran wild

it seems there is nothing
in this world that binds
when you’re trying to find
a place in the line

i can remember
back in high school days
living for freedom
and not for the ‘as’

so i sat in the pool
hall on graduation day
hoping someday
i’d find my place in the line

a place in the line
a place in the line

i wouldn’t worry
my mama would say
your kind of troubles, son
they just go with the age

those words of wisdom
still ring in my ears
as i struggle to find

my place in the line
’cause i’m still trying to find
my place in the line

a place in the line
someday i’ll find
a place in the line

a place in the line
a place in the line
a place in the line, oh yeah
