Lyrics

Someone Other Than Me

Written By: Gene Pursifull

when I was eight
I wanted to be
a big baseball star
play for the Cubs
be on TV
just like Earnie B.
but it wasn't me
it would never be

when I turned twelve
and strapped on the pads
I couldn't wait to play
get on the field
make the big hit
go play at ND
but it wouldn't be
naw it wasn't me

-chorus-
I'v lived my life wantin' to be
someone other than me
I'v spent all my time tryin' to be
a man I couldn't be
a man that wasn't me
a life that wouldn't be

when I turned 16
I thought I could be
number 43
race around those tracks
man I was the star
the field would chase me
but it would never be
a life not for me

when I was 18
I bought a guitar
thaought I was Eddie V.
played it loud
played it hard
wow the girls loved me
it would never be
a life that wasn't me

-chorus-

when I became a man
about 25
the one I wanted to be
was the big Bear man
down at Ala-Bam
how they'ed cheer for me
but it wouldn't be
a life not for me

now I'v got kids
and a wife
now I'm trying to be
the best man I can be
like the man that raised me
ya thats the life for me
ya thats the life for me

-chorus-

Just Going Through The Motions

Written By: Gene Pursifull

I don't know how it ended
I don't even know when
I realized one evening
my life was over - but not yet ended

-chorus-
I'm not living
I'm just going through the motions
I'm alive but there's not much left inside
I'm not living
I'm just going trough the motions
I can't even cry - I'v killed off all emotions
No I'm not living
I'm barely going through the motions

I get through each day
with fantasies and day dreams
nothing real - no hope for a future situation
now I end each day with a pint of liquid frustration

-chorus-

when I'm alone - I think about
what could and should have been
my future looks dim - no plans
no need for them
inside no hope resides

-chorus-
