Lyrics

The shape of my life

I’ve been to the mountain
I sailed on the deep
I’ve heard the winds tell
All the secrets they keep
I tried to buy peace
But the price was too steep
But that’s just the shape of my life

I gave my heart freely
But too many times
I built all my castles
From heartache and rhymes
And I carry the guilt
Of too many small crimes
But that’s just the shape of my life

That’s just the shape, that’s just the shape
That’s just the shape of my life (Repeat)

I’ve been frozen in motion
And I followed my dreams
I had Some great notions
That ended up schemes
I’ve lived on a line
And I’ve gone to extremes
But that’s just the shape of my life

I’ve had my good moments
I’ve had my regrets
I know the location
Of all of my debts
I’ve taken my chances
I placed all my bets
But that’s just the shape of my life

I’ll tell you my story
If you want to hear
A tale to bring you
A smile and a tear
I hope that by now
That it’s perfectly clear
That that’s just the shape of my life
