Life Got In The Way
I'm sorry I couldn't make it in today
Life got in the way
I'm sorry I missed your call, I'll get back to you
Life got in the way again
You keep pushing me, I'm just trying to be polite
I mean it when I say "life got in the way"
It's not an excuse, it's just one of those things
The real reasons might shock you, and I don't want to burden you, so I just keep saying "life got in the way"
Fine, you pushed me far enough
So here we go again
The trains were delayed, then they shut them all down
And there ain't no cabs in this part of town
My grandma died, my car broke down and they won't insure me cause they can't make more money out of me
After everything I gave them, when I really needed them, they said no cause they can
My wife left me, and I'm fighting for custody
Doctor says I'm Ill and my pills aren't strong enough
Haven't spoken to my parents in a really long time
And when I ask the universe for help I'm simply met with silence
Yeah everything's crazy right now, and I gotta handle it, so maybe I'm late once in a while
I don't want your pity, and I don't wanna hear the jargon
Have a heart, you're not a machine
Here's what you been pushing me for, I hope you're happy
And to think, if you'd just understood me when I said "life got in the way"
