Lyrics

I Came Here With Nothin?            James L Kleinheksel                © Copyright 2018

 

I came into this world, on a cold and rainy day 

I came in here with nothin?, gonna leave the same way

The only things I wanted, for all the wicked in between

Is always travel light, and wake up from this broken dream

 

Now I been around some, up and down this lonesome road

been up among the stars, then devoured by a hole

been through every kind of weather, under skies of black and blue

I seen every kind of love and hate, and there ain't that much to lose

Too many folks say how do, and there?s too few sayin' good bye

All I want is to make it through, an?not suffer when I die

never once thought about, what?s right and what is wrong

And I never found anyplace, where they told me I belong

I never ask for nothin?, and I sure ain't gonna plead

Stoned cold and all alone, in this world of toil and greed

 

Yes I came into this world, on a cold and rainy day

I came in here with nothin?, but still I got a price to pay

There's gotta be a reason, maybe some kind of plan

Bought and sold by Judas, and then covered by a sham

Could be joy or sorrow, with the break of each new day

I can?t feel either one, so it don't matter anyway

All these earthly trappings ,watched em all just come and go

One day a precious friend, the very next one?s fiercest foe

So I don?t gather nothin?, cuz I got no needs at all

All that love and money, is just setup for a crushing fall

 

Now I came in here with nothin?, and I stayed here far too long

I tried my best to get away, but somehow it all went wrong

Now I wake up in the morning, to a bright and sunny day

Wonderin? what misfortune, is headed down my way

Yes I came here with nothin?, to this hot and blinding light

Gonna leave from here with nothin?, in the middle of the night
