Lyrics

Thorny Crown

Written By: Willi x Evans & Dylan Evans

This ole world took my money
This ole world took my pride
This ole world left me empty
With nothin' left to hide
Just a shadow of a memory
Lines the bottom of this glass
Drank whiskey till I drowned
You picked me up as I's goin' down

It takes a lot o' livin'
To get to where I am
an' it takes a lot o' givin'
To jus' not give a damn
Where the music's lost it's meaning
an' I'm losin' every hand
Monday mornin' feelin' comin' round
You picked me up as I's goin' down

Lord I've lived my darkest hour
Now I need some light
Please take away this thorny crown
They lied, I tried and then I cried
I fought their good fight
You picked me up as I's goin' down

They called me faded glory
They threw me to the wind
It's hard to prove them wrong
When the bottle's your best friend
Starin' at one headlight
Helpless on the track
You turned it all around
And picked me up as I's goin' down
