James, we were always friends
From our childhood days
And we made our plans
And we had to go our separate ways.
I went on the road
You pursued an education.

James, do you like your life?
Can you find release?
Will you ever change?
Will you ever write your masterpiece?
Are you still in school
Living up to expectations? James

You were so relied upon
Everybody knows how hard you tried.
Hey, look at what a job you've done
Carrying the weight of family pride.

James, you've been well behaved,
You've been working hard
But will you always stay
Someone else's dream of who you are?
Do what's good for you, or you're not good for anybody, James.

I went on the road,
You pursued an education, James

How you gonna know for sure?
Everything was so well organized.
Hey, now everything is so secure
And everybody else is satisfied.

James, do you like your life?
Can you find release?
Will you ever change?
When will you write your masterpiece?
Do what's good for you, or you're not good for anybody, James.
