coolidge lyrics – bodyjar

[originally by descendents]

i’m not a cool guy anymore
as if i ever was before
i took a look at all the signs
then rolled it over in my mind

the feelings i could not release
became a bitter part of me
what was i thinking of?
it couldn’t stay the way it was

i looked at my reflection and i saw a stranger’s face
i saw where i was going and had to walk away

i lost a girl, it’s just as well
she tried to save me from myself
i’ve still got her on my mind
tossing and turning in my bed

but if she had stayed another week
i would have dragged her down with me
she took it till she had enough
is that what i thought love was?

i told her, “see you later” but it’s hard to see at all
at the bottom of the barrel
with your back against the wall

i’m not a cool guy anymore
left it behind and locked the door
i know you can’t escape the past
now i look back and have to laugh

i was my worst enemy
it almost got the best of me
what was i thinking of?
it couldn’t stay the way it was

i looked up one day and saw it was up to me
you can only be a victim if you admit defeat
