He was warmin' his hands with a hot coffee cup
Pourin' in whiskey as I walked up he never blinked an eye
He just asked for a light, I noticed he didn't have soles on his shoes
So I pulled out a twenty said go buy some food
But he just stared at his cup like I wasn't there
Then he looked at me said son that's nice
But there's some things money can't buy, 

I want my life back, I want that house that I called home, 
I want that job I worked for 22 years before I got laid off, 
I want what I had when I laid down in the arms of the woman that believed in me
And that man I used to be, I want my life back

I walked through the door and sat down at the bar
Had a shot and a beer lit up a cigar it ran through my head, 
Every word that old man said
I had a woman that loved me with all of her heart
But my pride and my temper made it all fall apart
I was to headstrong to admit when I was wrong
It's been 6 months since she moved out
Guess my pride ain't helping me now

I want my life back, I want that house that I called home, 
I want to hear her voice and see her face every day when I get off
I want what I had when I laid down in the arms of the woman that believed in me
And that man I used to be, I want my life back

I paid my tab and left that bar
Grabbed my phone jumped in my car
I dialed her number and when she said hello

I want my life back, I want that house that I called home, 
I want to hear her voice and see her face every day when I get off
I want what I had when I laid down in the arms of the woman that believed in me
And that man I used to be, I want my life back
