lyrics

LYRICS:
These shoes, these shoes
I wore them for years and now they don't fit anymore
I wore them for years and now they don't fit anymore
These arms, these arms
They held you for years and now they don't hold you no more
They held you for years and now they don't hold anymore

I'm sad and I'm free, I'm sad and I'm free
I'm a gambling man with an ace and a three
I'm a crumbling building with a vacancy
I'm a wandering comet with no place to be
I'm a cardboard cutout who dreams in 3D

This house, this house
I lived there for years and now I don't live there no more
I lived there for years and now I don't have a home
This drink, this drink
It soothed me for years and now I don't wanna be soothed
It soothed me for years and now I just want the truth

I'm sad and I'm free, I'm sad and I'm free
I'm a gambling man with an ace and a three
I'm a crumbling building with a vacancy
And I'm nothing like I thought I would be
I'm a cardboard cutout who dreams in 3D
