In My Own Way Lyrics

Sun cracks the sky again
Another one begins
The struggle to meet ends
But no two days are ever quite the same

My headache finally breaks
Got promises to make
And I'll try not to be late
To the big fat New Orleans Birthday Jambouree

It keeps my up all night
And I'm tired of being right
It scares me half to life
That I think this time it might be real
This time I feel it's going down, going down, going down

Secrets of past ages 
Lead us at last, pages
Torn from a book that
We've never looked at
No choosing sides
It's united we rise
But I'm in my own way    
I'm in my own way
I'm in my own way, I am

These town all look the same
We're circling the drain
Waiting on the rain
To wash the stains of the past off the street

Every bar has got its tender
Are we living to pretend or
Can the next thing just begin or
Is this the curtain call for all we love and you and me
Let's start the show

I hope by now you know
That if life is just a joke
At least we'll laugh before we croak 
And the sound of laughter lingers after
Your last breath's been gasped, your last breath's been gasped

Secrets of past ages 
Lead us at last, pages
Torn from a book that
We've never looked at
No choosing sides
It's united we rise
But I'm in my own way    
I'm in my own way
I'm in my own way, I am

I concede that I believe that I am like no other
But the whole world is my mother
And that makes us the same
But why all of the pain
The blue skies turn to rain
All there is is change
And all my words are games
But they're all that I can say
So can you hear me pray

In my best times I can resign to open to sorrow
And from the Earth I'll borrow
The healing of her hands
But why all the demands?
Who laid out these plans?
They're not designed for humans
And I get down and blue man
But I know what to do and
I'll return to you land,
I'll return to you land

But then there're the sad songs
We want to know what's wrong
We're waiting on the dawn
We know it can't be long
I'm with you holding on
I'm with you holding on
I'm with you holding ooooooooooooon

Secrets of past ages 
Lead us at last, pages
Torn from a book that
We've never looked at
No choosing sides
It's united we rise
But I'm in my own way    
I'm in my own way
I'm in my own...

Way down the line 
I think we'll meet again
We'll stand in the waters with 
Sun on our skin
That day waits for us in the 
Future my friend
But I'm in my own way
I'm in my own way
I'm in my own way, I am
