Why Ain't I Bleeding

Sometimes I think it's all been
a dream people I've met places I've
seen lover who've sailed through my
arms and my bed footprints of angels
where devil's won't tread

And it really makes me smile
when I turn back the years
cherish the laughter remember the tears
the man I am now is not the man
I was then as time goes by I'll
tell you my friend

That I'm drunk right now and I need
a cigarette I wish I know some
way to forget
if I'm bound for hell 'cos of the
shape I'm in I don't have regrets
I won't change a thing

Why ain't I bleeding 'cos I feel so much pain
why ain't I bleeding some things never change

Hard times and many a tear I needed
some shelter rats in the cellar screams
in my head I look in the mirror
I look like I'm dead
I was a king of the road rhythm and blues
starry-eyed losers drawn
in tattoo's and the man I am now
is not the man I was then as time
goes by I tell you my friend

That I'm drunk right now and I need
a cigarette I wish I know some
way to forget
if I'm bound for hell 'cos of the
shape I'm in I don't have regrets
I won't change a thing

Why ain't I bleeding 'cos I feel so much pain
why ain't I bleeding some things never change
