Paroles :

I got it bad
You don’t know how bad I got it
You got it easy
You don’t know when you’ve got it goodIt’s getting harder
Just keeping life and soul together
I’m sick of fighting
Even though I know I shouldThe cold is biting
Through each and every nerve and fibre
My broken spirit is frozen to the core
I don’t wanna be here no moreWouldn’t it be good to be in your shoes
Even if it was for just one day?
Wouldn’t it be good if we could wish ourselves away?Wouldn’t it be good to be on your side?
The grass is always greener over there
Wouldn’t it be good if we could live without a care?You must be joking
You don’t know a thing about it
You’ve got no problem
I’d stay right there if I were youI got it harder
You couldn’t dream how hard I got it
Stay out of my shoes
If you know what’s good for youThe heat is stifling
Burning me up from the inside
The sweat is coming through each and every pore
I don’t wanna be here no more
I don’t wanna be here no more
I don’t wanna be here no moreWouldn’t it be good to be in your shoes
Even if it was for just one day?
Wouldn’t it be good if we could wish ourselves away?
Ooh-oohWouldn’t it be good to be on your side?
The grass is always greener over there
Wouldn’t it be good if we could live without a care?I got it bad
You don’t know how bad I got it
You got it easy
You don’t know when you’ve got it good
It’s getting harder
Just keeping life and soul together
I’m sick of fighting
Even though I know I should
I don’t wanna be here no more
