dead end lyrics – sam roberts

oh, what’s wrong with me?
said, “oh, what’s wrong with me?”
i know, what i don’t wanna be
a dead end on the family tree
and i just lost my virginity
to a girl who won’t remember me at all
took her out on a shopping spree
happiness never happened for free
could it be, that i imagined things
i’m just sad instead of heartbroken
she came home but she’s leavin’ again
she’s coming back but she won’t say when

and i don’t sing songs anymore
i don’t feel young anymore
and it’s hard to conceal
that these tears that i cry are for real
any more

my pop says, “i should be like him”
my mom says, “i can live with them”
i had to ask my little brother to lend
me change for the bus till i see him again
i’m getting drunk every day of the week
my ship sunk but it had no leak
a fortune teller on bishop street
she read my hand and the future is bleak
i’m tired of sitting upon the fence
i’ve got no self-confidence
why don’t i have a circle of friends?
i’m so square they don’t even pretend

and i don’t sing songs anymore
i don’t feel young anymore
and it’s hard to conceal
that these tears that i cry are for real
any more

don’t give in, don’t give in
you can never let them win
don’t give in, don’t give in
but i get cold
(ah)
i get cold
every night, night, night
without a prayer in my heart, heart, heart
oh, i get cold
yeah, i get cold
every night, night, night
without a prayer in my heart, heart, heart
oh no

oh, what’s wrong with me?
said, “oh lord, what’s wrong with me?”
i know, what i don’t wanna be
a dead end on the family tree
and the train for my salvation
is departing from the station
she don’t feel like conversation
so, i’m talking to myself
i got n*body else
i got my bottle of booze and my stale cigarettes
down from the shelf

and i don’t sing songs anymore
i don’t feel young anymore
and it’s hard to conceal
that these tears that i cry are for real
any more
any more
