[D] [A7] [D] [F#] [Aug] [D] 
Have happened lately when I

Take a good swing at all my dreams,
[F#m7] 
I drop my fists and they're back, laughing.

Howard, my intention's become not to lose what I've won.
Ambition has given way to desperation and I

Lost the fight from my eyes.

Howard, now I confess I'm scared and lonely and tired.
They seem to think I'm made of clay.
Another day, I'm not cut out for this.
I just know want to say, I say,
CHORUS

BRIDGE
[FM7add13] [Dm/C] [BbM7] [Dm/G]

How wrong I am.
