Lyrics

Enough about you, let’s talk about me
That’s what you used to say to company
They watched and listened so attentively
Stirring your finger in your martini

Well back then I was just a little kid
Living inside my head and there I hid
You were the ego, man, you were the id
No one could beat you, man, Heaven forbid.

Oh the contender that I could’ve been
Just look at all the fights I couldn’t win
Count every single towel that I threw in
For you for you for you for you

Oh my God, how I could’ve been a contender
I could’ve killed ‘em with my Martin and Fender
Now every fight only ends up in surrender
To you to you for you

Well now you’re older and you’re far away
A setting sun somewhere beyond L.A.
And still you’re acting like you rule the day
Still think you’re handsome though you’re -

I like to think that when you’re finished here
I’ll find forgiveness in place of my fear
But up in Heaven shadows only grow longer
And down on earth resentment only gets stronger.

Oh the contender that I could’ve been
Just look at all the fights I couldn’t win
Count every single towel that I threw in
For you for you for you for you

Oh yes I know I could’ve been a contender
Last time I won, my God, I just don’t remember
One day I’ll fight and I will never surrender
To you to you to you to you
To you.
