The Shape I’m In

The Shape I’m In

Tell me some happy stories
Cause it’s not that way for me
I like those happy endings
But they just aren’t meant to be

I miss skies full of sunshine
Cause I’ve been out in the rain
I miss all my yesterdays
Now each day brings me more pain

Chorus:
I try to tell myself
That you’ll come crawling back
But that is just a lie
It ain’t gonna be like that
I try hard to pretend
Things aren’t as bad as this
But deep inside I know
That just ain’t how it is

When I see pictures of us
Things look a whole lot clearer
How could I trade those smiles
For the frown in my mirror

You tried so hard to love me
But I took more than I gave
If I’d been a better man
Maybe you would have stayed

Bridge:
I’ve got to face the hard cold facts
And stop kidding myself
The arms that are holding you now
Belong to someone else
You needed love I didn’t give
And there can be no doubt
I’ve got no one to blame but me
For the shape I’m in now

Chorus:
I try to tell myself
That you’ll come crawling back
But that is just a lie
It ain’t gonna be like that
I try hard to pretend
Things aren’t as bad as this
But deep inside I know
That just ain’t how it is
