You've gotta lotta nerve to say you are my friend
When I was down you just stood there grinnin'
You've gotta lotta nerve to say you have a helping hand to lend
You just want to be on the side that's winnin'
You see me on the street, you always act surprised
Ya say "how are you?", "good luck", but ya don't mean it
When you know as well as me you'd rather see me paralyzed
Why don't you just come out once and scream it
I know the reason you talked behind my back
I used to be among the crowd you're in with
But do you take me for such a fool, to think I'd make contact
With the one who tries to hide what he don't know to begin with?
You say I've let you down - ya know its not like that
If you're so hurt, why then doncha show it?
You say you've lost your faith, but that's not where its at
Ya have no faith to lose - an' ya know it
No, I doe not feel that good when I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief perhaps I'd rob them
And tho I know you're dissatisfied with your position and your place
Don't you understand, its not my problem?
I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is to see you
