Lyrics:
Sick of this life
       Not that you'd care
       I'm not the only one with
       whom these feelings I share
     Nobody understands, quite why we're here
       We're searchin' for answers
       That never appear
     But maybe if I looked real hard I'd
       I'd see your tryin' too
       To understand this life,
       That we're all goin' through
       (Then when she said she was gonna like
       wreck my car...I didn't know what to do)

     Sometimes I feel like I'm beatin' a dead horse
       An I don't know why you'd be bringin' me down
       I'd like to think that our love's
       worth a tad more
       It may sound funny but you'd think by now
       I'd be smilin'
       I guess some things never change
       Never change

     I met an old cowboy
       I saw the look in his eyes
       Somethin' tells me he's been here before
       'Cause experience makes you wise
       I was only a small child
       When the thought first came to me
       That I'm a son of a gun and the gun of a son
       That brought back the devil in me

     Sometimes I feel like I'm beatin' a dead horse
       An I don't know why you'd be bringin' me down
       I'd like to think that our love's
       worth a tad more
       It may sound funny but you'd think by now
       I'd be smilin'
       I guess some things never change
       Never change

     I ain't quite what you'd call an old soul
       Still wet behind the ears
       I been around this track a couple o' times
       But now the dust is startin' to clear
       Oh yeah!!!

     Sometimes I feel like I'm beatin' a dead horse
       An I don't know why you'd be bringin' me down
       I'd like to think that our love's
       worth a tad more
       It may sound funny but you'd think by now
       I'd be smilin'
       Ooh yeah, I'd be smilin'
       No way I'd be smilin'
       Ooh smilin'

     Sick of this life
       Not that you'd care
       I'm not the only one
       With whom these feelings I share
