the road past success lyrics – adjusted

there’s an old man who’s in desperate need of self esteem.
all this constant pressure that’s on him makes him feel…

worthless and denied, he said he’d never felt quite alright.
he demanded something more out of life than to only fit right in.

this old man is still waiting to be recognized.
broken dreams are reflected in his weary eyes.

all his life he fought his way to be satisfied.
but somewhere on the long hard way it seems he lost his mind.

life went by so fast, there’s little time when you strive for
success and fame. so now he sees his life long attempt to be
someone fail, he’s weak and afraid.

he covered his ears and then he closed his eyes,
and started to pray for one more chance to live life again,
without demands and fear of making mistakes.
