|: (Beggin'), I'm beggin' you
Put your loving hand out, baby :|
Riding high, when I was king
Played it hard and fast 'cause I had everything
You walked away, won me then
But easy come and easy go and it would end.
I need you to understand,
That I tried so hard to be your man
The kind of man you want in the end
Only then can I begin to live again.
An empty shell I used to be
The shadow of my life hanging over me
Broken man, without a throne
Won't even stand the devil's dance to win my soul.
I'm fighting hard to hold my own
But I just can't make it on my own
I'm holding on, I can't fall back
Now that big brass ring is a shade of black.
