I had the best of intentions
When I got out of bed today
I set out to make things right
Make some of the pain go away

World peace seemed so out of reach
So I touched the people I knew
May not have stopped any wars
But I accomplished a thing or two

I fulfilled some promises
And I gave alms to the poor
I defended a helpless man
Just to even the score

Sometimes the best of intentions
Never gets anything done
I fall down on my face
Start again from square one

Even when things don't add up
And I can do nothing more
I think about the days I've won
When I evened the score

I fulfilled some promises
And I gave alms to the poor
I defended a helpless man
Just to even the score

I made amends with an old lover
We tipped the wineglass once more
Better friends than enemies
Just to even the score

I only wanted not to lose anymore
And live to fight one day more

I had the best of intentions
But I think I mighta hurt someone
I'll have to move a mountain
To undo the damage I've done

I'll fulfill some promises
I'll give alms to the poor
I'll defend a helpless man
Just to even the score

I'll make amends with an old lover
We'll tip the wineglass once more
Better friends than enemies
Just to even the score

I'll spread the wealth from a to z
Rob the rich and give to the poor
If only things could be that way
I'd even the score
