Lyrics

Verse
‘Scuse me sir, can you lend me a hand,
I gotta make it home today.
Just got word that my daddy’s been hurt,
I hope to God I’m not too late.

My car broke down on the outskirts of town
I’ve been walking quite a ways
Can you gimmie a ride, cause I don’t have long
There’s a lot I need to say.

Pre-Chorus
This ain’t how supposed to be.
This ain’t how supposed to be.
This ain’t how supposed to be.
This ain’t how supposed to be.

Chorus
I’ll pick up the pieces of yesterday,
I’ll put ‘em back together and live today.
This can’t be the life I was meant to lead,
I’m gonna change my ways, just wait and see.

Verse
I just left school trying to play it cool,
With my mind in such a daze.
I answered the call, could not believe it at all
the news was just too hard to take.

If you can get me there soon I can mend all our wounds
and make up for my past.
I’ll beg and plead, it’s his forgiveness I need
today’s my only chance.

Pre-Chorus
This ain’t how supposed to be.
This ain’t how supposed to be.
This ain’t how supposed to be.
This ain’t how supposed to be.

Chorus
I’ll pick up the pieces of yesterday,
I’ll put ‘em back together and live today.
This can’t be the life I was meant to lead,
I’m gonna change my ways, just wait and see.
