Now I can sing you the story line
And if you like my story fine
But ain't none of the glory mine

See my life was a lonely one
And I was still mama's only son
With no idea what I'm gon' become

And I didn't have long to know
That you don't have to be grown to go
I could've died so long before

Then I finally saw the sign
And I made it on down the line
One step at a time

I feel better, I can smile at it now
I feel better, oh better
And even a little is still better
Oh, have mercy on me

Oh, it's probably plain to see
That I got a whole lot of pain in me
And it will always remain in me

So cold it's a crying shame
Yet here I am trying to gain
'Cause I refuse to die in vain

The circumstances put soul in me
And there ain't no holding me
I've got a heart made of gold in me

Can you believe this is where I've been?
And when adversity calls again
I'll deal with it then

I feel better, I can laugh at it now
I feel better, oh better
And even a little is still better
Oh, have mercy on me

Ah ah, yeah, um, oh, oh

I said everything's fine, you can take your time
What would be on your mind
If you knew you was dying?
I would wanna just feel this one more time

I said everything's fine, take your time
What would be on your mind
If you knew you was dying?
I would wanna just feel this one more time

Alright
I want to thank you morning sun
I want to thank you lonely girl
Now I know I'm not the only one

I want to thank you friendly ghost
When all the cards were close
It seems like you cared the most

I want to thank you mom and dad
For hurting me so bad
But you're the best I ever had
I want to thank you
