lyrics

Contender

It’s hard to see the work
Through all these wasted days
All the time not spent
All the decisions never made

Could’ve been a contender
Could’ve said what I mean
Sometimes it was close
Not as close as it seemed

Clarity comes on
Like a light in the dark
Not everyone has
The quick and the spark

Could’ve been a contender
Could’ve said what I mean
Sometimes it was close
Not as close as it seemed

Deadlines like a fuse
News like a vice
How does anybody manage
To sleep on through the night
All the weight of the world
Bearing down like a train
And the 4am blues
Rolling around in your brain

Could’ve been a contender
Could’ve said what I mean
Sometimes it was close
Not as close as it seemed

What could go wrong keeps going wrong
It’s hard to put into words
It’s hard to fit in a song

Could’ve been a contender
Could’ve said what I mean
Sometimes it was close
Not as close as it seemed

Before that, he was in a band called Paradise Vending. They weren't very popular either. He lives in KC and works as a dataviz developer and sometimes journalist. He also writes songs and hopes you like them. ... more
