Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The cracks are showing, on my face
I didn't think that I was, that old my story is
I weathered every storm I, pulled it through
Falling by the wayside, I've seen a few
But I never went down, never went down
I never will
Taken every single blow and countered
Never went down, never went down,
And better still
Look at my face and see your father
Verse 2
I'm ready to take my turn
Taking the shot that I've earned
Chance is what keeps me rolling
Rolling
Verse 3
Diamonds in my eyes
Oceans full of pride
Can't you see I'm only human
I'm in perpetual motion I'm rolling, rolling
Can't you see I'm only human
Verse 4
The cracks are showing, on my face
The well ain't empty, never out of place
It seems to be harder, for some maybe
And I won't play, the game of wait and see
But I never went down, never went down
I never will
Taken every single blow and countered
Never went down, never went down,
And better still
Look at my face and see your father
Verse 5
I'm ready to take my turn
Taking the shot that I've earned
Chance is what keeps me rolling
Rolling
Verse 6
Diamonds in my eyes
Oceans full of pride
Can't you see I'm only human
I'm in perpetual motion I'm rolling, rolling
Can't you see I'm only human
Verse 7
I don't fight I win, underneath it I'm human
And my pride is not a sin,
Underneath it I'm human
And I respect my mistakes,
And decisions that I make
In time I've earned my cake,
Have my cake and then
I'll eat it
Verse 8
I'm ready to take my turn
Taking the shot that I've earned
Chance is what keeps me rolling
Rolling
Verse 9
Diamonds in my eyes
Oceans full of pride
Can't you see I'm only human
I'm in perpetual motion I'm rolling, rolling
Can't you see I'm only human
Verse 10
[Main Solo : Paul Crook]
