You walk in here with your guitar man
Your shiney boots and full on band
A smile on your face, a knife in your hand
Singing songs you got memorised
With whatever talent money buys
So polished that it slips right through your hands
Don't worry yourself, I ain't your competition
But don't flatter yourself, that was never my intention

I wanna talk about what you are that I ain't
Let's talk about what you do that I can't
Let's talk about you and me in an empty room and who wins
Let's talk about what you did to get here
Let's talk about blood and sweat and tears
Let's talk about what you wanna be
And who I've always been, yeah

I walk in here with my beat up case
The same guitar I've always played
And the words I wrote down on a page
When I was twelve years old and small town raised
You tell the crowd you pay in dues
I tell them this is what I do
And it's what I put my life into
As I breathe in smoke and cheap perfume
And say life on musical road is rough conditions
Oh, but the easy ride was never my ambition

I wanna talk about what you are that I ain't
Let's talk about what you do that I can't
Let's talk about you and me in an empty room and who wins
Let's talk about what you did to get here
Let's talk about blood and sweat and tears
Let's talk about what you wanna be
And who I've always been, yeah

Let's talk about your childhood days
You were the prom queen, I was on this stage
So where's that crown gotten you these days?
When it's me and you and the same damn games

Let's talk about what you got that I ain't
Let's talk about what you do that I can't
Let's put me and you in an empty room and see who wins
I wanna talk about what you did to get here
Let's talk aboyt blood and sweat and tears
Let's talk about what you wanna be, girl
And who I've always been
