lyrics

We've all heard that story of the sad clown who wants everyone to smile
I've been that sad clown, might think I'm kidding but you didn't really listen to my songs
I've got a soft spot for any kitty cat with a broken leg, but forget I'm allergic
Take it home and pet it, nurse it to health at my own expense
And sing 1-2-3-4-5-6-1-2-3-4-5-6

I pay attention to the little things and have fallen behind the big picture of life
I've been ignoring things of importance, now who's gonna fix me?

Someone sing me a song for once
Make the pain stop, make me feel like I'm wanted
Tell my daughter I love her
If the hurt gets too much and I drink myself to death
All these pills I've been taking at night
They make my heart sing and they're keeping me alive
But they ain't got nothing on a song
Music can heal, lyrics can kill

Draw me a picture and use every single crayon in the box
Or I'll get my ar keys and we can find a lake
And stare at the evening while laying on a blanket
It don't take much more than "Hello, how are you"?
Just a simple phone call
We don't have to make love, just hold me tonight
And let me bum your cigarettes
I'll sing 1-2-3-4-5-6-1-2-3-4-5-6

Someone sing me a song for once
Make the pain stop, make me feel like I'm wanted
Tell my daughter I love her
If the hurt gets too much and I drink myself to death
All these pills I've been taking at night
They make my heart sing and they're keeping me alive
But they ain't got nothing on a song
Music can heal, lyrics can kill

Break me in half, stitch me back up
Kiss me for luck, help me stand up
Make me a good man, a good father
Make me someone you trust
Someone fix me for once

Someone sing me a song for once
Make the pain stop, make me feel like I'm wanted
Tell my daughter I love her
If the hurt gets too much and I drink myself to death
All these pills I've been taking at night
They make my heart sing and they're keeping me alive
But they ain't got nothing on a song
Music can heal, lyrics can kill
