Mike's Big Book of Songs

Race That Train - Wrong

you thought a thief could take your guitar
but he'd never steal your song
you were wrong
you were wrong

you thought the bank could take your house
but this would always be your home
you were wrong
you were wrong

you thought you could go for broke
and never be poor
you thought you could give her all your love
and always have more
but you were wrong
you were wrong
you were wrong

you thought the job would take some muscle
but you wouldn't lose your mind
'cause you were strong
but you were wrong

you though time would take its toll
on your looks, but you'd save face
you were wrong
you were wrong

you thought you could take a gamble
you thought you could win or lose
you thought you were master of your destiny
you thought you could choose
but you were wrong
you were wrong
you were wrong

you thought you could take the punishment
you thought you were a rock
you though you were free
until you stood there in the dock
and then you knew
you were wrong
you were wrong

we knew the mob would take their cut
but we never thought that we would lose our shirts
we were wrong
we were wrong
like when the dentist pulls your teeth
and you believe her when she says "this will not hurt"
you were wrong
you were wrong
or when your lover looks you straight in the eye
and says "this is not goodbye, this is not goodbye
this is not goodbye, so long"
you were wrong
