A Man Of Great Promise (lyrics)

I bought the paper yesterday and I saw the obituary
And I read of how you died in pain -
Well I just couldnt understand it
If I could of changed that, then lord knows Id do it now
But there is no going back -
And whats done is done forever

But you were always chained and shackled by the dirt -
Of every small town institution and every big town flirt

And I think of what you might have been,
A man of such great promise
Oh but, you seem to forget the dream -
And the more you saw you hated

But lets not talk of blame, for what is only natural
Like a moth going to a flame -
You had a dangerous passion

But you were always chained and shackled by the dirt -
Of every small town institution and every big town flirt

All the things that you might have been - but who am I to say?
Still I wonder -
If its the cold earth you prefer to lay -
If its the cold earth - you prefer to stay
