In the end I was a slow horse in a fast race.
I guess I saw it coming from the moment that I left the gate.
I never settled down,
Because I never knew my place.
I lost everything I had,
Now I'm trying to shrug it off
And save some face.

I'm not gonna tell you what to do
I'm not gonna tell you how to live

But I will give to you the best advice
That I will ever give.
If I show up at your door don't let me in.
Well, if you don't believe,
Then it's best you don't begin.
If I show up at your door don't let me in.

There were days I had to go,
When I should've just stayed home.
There were things I had to know
That were better off unknown.
I guess that I'll just wait right here
And hope you lace or show.
Even though I know you won't.
I think it's better that you don't.

And I will give to you the best advice
That I will ever give.
If I show up at your door don't let me in.
Well, if you don't believe,
Then it's best you don't begin.
If I show up at your door don't let me in.
Cause scared money don't win.

Scared money don't win. Scared money don't win. Scared money don't win. Scared money don't win. Scared money don't win.

And I became all of the things,
You know I swore I'd never be.
I guess we all get there eventually.
