Never did think life would lead me here
To celebrate the day, dreams would disappear
I've been running around from the day I was born
When I finally stopped, found myself at home

I didn't ever think I'd be here right now
That I wouldn't feel like I was missing out
Somewhere out there someone's living my old dreams
Hope he's happy, I wouldn't trade for anything

I never saw myself as a family man
Smoke in my head and drink in my hand
And too hard to laugh, too low to cry
And the smoke went south and the drink went dry

Somewhere out there someone is living my old dreams
Hope he's happy, I wouldn't change a single thing
I'm living a new dream

I never did think I'd be here with you
I'm worse ? but I'm tried and true

Somewhere out there someone is living my old dreams
Hope he's happy and wouldn't trade for anything
I'm living a new dream
