 Hearts' of my soul emotions

Thought My Life Was Perfect


Day In,Day Out....
I sit here thinkin' my life was perfect...
But it was only shame,for I have lost a home...
my family and friends,everything I owned.

Thought my life was perfect...
til it came crashing down...
One night at a club...
knowing I shouldn't have been there...
But I was with my homeboy...
and lost in every drink and shot...
I left and robbed a liquor store...
now I'm alone in prison.

Thought my life was perfect...
but I was wrong...
My Maryann now three and lil' Alexis five...
They are sad without me...
as I lay here at night...
I sometimes hear them crying out for Daddy...
cause Mommy can't replace me.

Thought my life was perfect...
but that wasn't the case...
Hardly anyone cares for me...
No woman will ever call me her own...
Patricia came...but now she's gone...
I got with her in "99" and was alone by 2001...
How could I think it was okay...to drink...
you see...just once was too many times for her.

Thought my life was perfect...
then reality came to view...
My Dads'an alcoholic (10 months on the wagon)
My Mother lives by taking pills...
So as you see... I'm feelin' alone!

Thought my life was perfect...
thought I had it all...
I'm 23...,nothing could go wrong...
A hard working man...
tryin' to make it on his own...
But I learned to take the fall...
and I did it all on my own.

Thought my life was perfect...
but I see it really wasn't...
I'm here to who knows when...
Behind these prison walls...
Dreadful days of yelling...
Endless nights of cryin'...
Is how my life has come to be.

My family is out there supporting me...
They really do care and miss me...
Even though life wasn't perfect...
I still pray one day it will be.
