Somebody Told Me

Somebody told me that I could not reach for the life I had before I fell.
Somebody told me that I should not bother, just throw your dreams into the wishing well.
You’re better off as far as I can tell.
Somebody told me I was doomed to fail just like my father before me.
Somebody told me I was just a waste of time, you’re going nowhere boy just take your seat.
You’re going nowhere, you can ride with me.

Chorus:
Ain’t it like me? Ain’t it like you?
To believe what we’ve been told?
They’re just afraid to say it, and more afraid to face it.
They gave themselves up a long time ago.
Told me to follow, I refuse to go.

Somebody told me change the way you’re thinking, give it up and don’t look back.
Somebody told me if I kept on believing, just blame yourself when you’re on your back.
I tried to tell you there’s no second chance.
Somebody told me not to chase that rainbow, you can’t catch it if you try.
Somebody told me I was getting too old, just put it down and just step aside.
End of the story end of the line.
