I’m not the same as I used to be.

All the things you’ve heard,
      Bb
Seem hard to believe

Haven’t always been good, never really been bad.
Bb                     F/A            Gm7     Gm7/Bb    C

I been loose as a cannon and dumb as a wall.

Haven’t always been sober, and counted my ducks.

And, if I look back now, I had my share of luck,

But, the change didn’t come overnight.

I’ve been searching for you all my life.
         Bb                      F
All the habits that I couldn’t handle.
            G7 Bb      C
I swept them under the rug.
     C#              Fm/C        Bbm
In exchange for the sweetest addiction,

I may paint your picture, and I might grow a beard.

There were times I was crazy, couldn’t handle my life.
Bb                 F/A      Gm7     Gm7/Bb   C     A/C#

I got burnt out and chilled by the cold,
